CBP has announced the implementation of a new procedure which will take the place of the physical I-94 card you currently receive at the border. Instead of receiving a physical card, the arrival/departure process is now automated. Foriegn nationals will now only receive an entry (or admission) stamp in their passport which will include the entry date, class of admission (or status) and the expiration date. You can now print your I-94 in an electronic format at www.cbp.gov/I94.
The new automated system will be implemented in four stages at U.S. air and sea ports starting on April 30, 2013.
No, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), another component of DHS, will continue to issue paper Forms I-94 for change of status applications, H-1B petitions, and other applications in the form of an I-797 Approval Notice.
