How to Print the I-94

Each time you enter the United States, your entry will be recorded electronically. The record includes your name, date of birth, passport country and number, visa type, and date of entry. This information was previously recorded by paper. There are a number of reasons you might still need paper documentation of your arrival record, so we encourage you to print your I-94 each time you come into the country. Keep the printouts in your personal files. You might need to refer to them in future.

To print a paper I-94, go to and enter your details into the online form. When it retrieves your arrival information, check that it is correct and then print it. Since this is a new system, the form might not work correctly all the time. If your information cannot be retrieved, you may need to experiment with adding spaces between letters or taking away spaces.

If you have a First and Middle name, include them both on the first name line with a space.

For example:

  • Family Name: Smith
  • First Name: Claire
  • Middle Name: Anne

You can enter this into the form as:

  • Last Name: Smith
  • First Name: Claire Anne
  • If this does not work, try it without the space, as "ClaireAnne."

If you have both letters and numbers in a passport number, try first with no spaces.

For example:  

  • Passport Number: LA497327
  • If that does not work, try it as "LA 497327."
