The Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) has eliminated the Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record, the familiar white card that foreign nationals are asked to complete on the airplane prior to entering the U.S. Beginning April 30, 2013, if a foreign national needs a copy of the I-94 card as evidence of his or her entry into the U.S., he or she must print his or her I-94 record from While this is not mandatory, we recommend that foreign national employees, especially those in the U.S. on temporary work permission, do so. The I-94 card, in conjunction with a foreign national employee’s visa and foreign passport, often is the “List A” document that confirms the foreign national’s ability to work in the U.S. Having proof of this authorization is critical.
