Non-Immigrant Visa (NIV) Arrival/Departure 5 Year Travel History Now Available Online


Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched a new webpage on May 1, 2014, that offers nonimmigrants entering the U.S. access to their I-94 arrival/departure record and their arrival/departure history.

The new CBP webpage allows nonimmigrant travelers to access arrival/departure records going back five years from the request date. This electronic travel-history function means that travelers may no longer need to file Freedom of Information Act requests to receive their arrival/departure history. Travelers will have electronic access to the date and port of entry of their arrivals and departures.

When travelers visit the I-94 webpage they can retrieve their I-94 arrival/departure record number and five-year travel history by entering the required name, date of birth and passport information.

Clicking on “Get Most Recent I-94” will return the I-94 number, most recent date of entry, class of admission and admit-until date. The information does not reflect changes of status, extension of stay or adjustments of status granted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Travelers then have the option to print their record.

Clicking on “Get Travel History” will return their printable five-year travel history based on their I-94 records.

Travelers can also cancel pending Freedom of Information Act requests for travel history information - after they have received the information from the new website - by adding their FOIA Request Number and clicking on “Request FOIA Cancellation” button.
