International travelers entering the U.S. by land may now apply and pay online for their I-94 arrival record up to seven days before entry.
Background: The I-94 arrival record indicates that an international traveler has been lawfully admitted to the U.S. and is needed to verify alien registration, immigration status and employment authorization. Since 2013, the online I-94 process has been available to air and sea travelers. The recent announcement extends it to travelers entering by a land border.
BAL Analysis: The online I-94 application will make it more convenient and faster for nonimmigrant visa holders to provide their biographical information for purposes of obtaining an arrival record upon entry.
