CBP Announces Delays in Processing I-94 Arrival/Departure Records
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced on September 17, 2012, that it is experiencing delays in processing foreign visitors’ travel information in the Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record database. CBP said this does not affect the majority of foreign travelers visiting for business or leisure and will not affect any visitor’s record of departure.
CBP is exploring automating the I-94 to allow for the collection of arrival/departure information electronically to streamline the arrival and inspection process for travelers. CBP is coordinating with other agency stakeholders and is considering rule-making.
