This week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began helping eligible Visa Waiver Program (VWP) travelers keep track of their last possible departure date through the I-94 website and via email. On the I-94 website, VWP travelers can now check how much longer they can remain in the U.S. without overstaying the terms of their admission by entering their name, birthdate, passport number and passport country of issuance. VWP travelers will also receive email alerts reminding them of their last possible departure date. CBP plans to expand the program to additional nonimmigrant travelers in the future.
The I-94 Arrival Record is important because it is a means to verify the immigration status and employment authorization of non-immigrant visitors. As a non-immigrant visitor, it is imperative that you check your I-94 record online for accuracy each and every time you enter the U.S.
