It is important, now more than ever, to check your I-94 record after you enter the U.S. this year.
Your I-94 record is issued at the U.S. border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This record confirms that you have been legally admitted to the U.S. in a specific visa status, and for a duration of time. For F and J visa holders, the amount of time is indicated by the notation “D/S,” which means you can be in the U.S. for the Duration of Status of your student or scholar program.
Make sure to download a copy of your I-94 record and save it in your files every time you enter the U.S..
Problems locating your I-94 or incorrect information listed on it?
If you cannot locate your I-94 record in the online system or you locate it and the information is incorrect, please contact your OISS adviser immediately. Be prepared to provide the adviser the date you arrived in the U.S., the airport you landed in, and a copy of your reservation or ticket.
