I-94 Cards Go Paperless - (4/11/13)

The paper card issued to foreign working artists upon arrival to the U.S. is going electronic.  U.S. Customs and Border protection has announced that, beginning April 30 and throughout mid-May, paper I-94 cards will be phased out and verification of an individual’s visa status and the length of their approved stay in the U.S. will be accessible online at www.cbp.gov/I94.  The new site will be up and running on April 30.  While information about a visitor’s visa classification will be stamped into their passport, the I-94 card remains the most important form of legal documentation for visa holders upon arrival in the U.S.  Learn more about this new development.
