To reduce wait times, CBP is urging travelers who require an I-94 to apply and prepay online before arriving at the land border.
A Form I-94 is needed by all visitors except: U.S. citizens, returning resident aliens, aliens with immigrant visas, and most Canadian citizens visiting or in transit. Travelers will be issued an I-94 during the admission process at the port of entry. If you are traveling via a land border you may apply for an I-94 in advance athttps://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home, saving time while at the port of entry later.
“With summer approaching and people beginning to feel more comfortable traveling, we will inevitably see wait times increase,” said Harmit Gill, Director, Area Port of Blaine. “Travelers who apply for an I-94 online prior to their arrival at a port of entry, can save themselves a significant amount of time at the border.”
