Unsurrendered I-94's

The last time I left the United States, no one took my I-94. I got a new one (and a new Admission/Departure number) when I came back in. What should I do with the old one?
If you left the United States with your Form I-94 still in your possession, your departure was not recorded properly. It is your responsibility to correct this record. You must provide the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS) sufficient information so that they can record your timely departure from the United States. This will close out your earlier record of arrival to this country.

If you do not correct this record, or if you cannot reasonably prove that you departed in a timely way when you next apply for admission to the United States, BCIS may conclude you remained in the United States beyond your authorized stay. If this happens, you may have to pay a heavy price the next time you try to enter the United States: your visa may be cancelled or you may be returned immediately to your foreign point of origin.

To validate departure (to prove that you did leave the United States after your earlier stay), BCIS will consider a variety of documentation, including:

  1. Original boarding passes you used to depart the United States
  2. Photocopies of entry or departure stamps in your passport indicating you entered another country after you departed the United States (you should copy all passport pages that are not completely blank, including the biographical page containing your photograph), and
    Photocopies of other supporting evidence, such as:
    • Dated pay slips or vouchers from your employer to indicate you worked in another country after you departed the United States
    • Dated bank records showing transactions to indicate you were in another country after you left the United States
    • School records showing attendance at a school outside the United States to indicate you were in another country after you left the United States
    • Dated credit card receipts, showing your name, but, the credit card number deleted, for purchases made after you left the United States to indicate you were in another country after leaving the United States

Your statement alone will not be acceptable without supporting evidence such as noted above.

Photocopies must be legible. If you send original materials, you should retain a copy for yourself. The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS) cannot return original materials after processing.

There is no fee involved. However, to help BCIS understand the situation and correct your records quickly, please include a letter of explanation in English. Send your letter and documentary evidence in one envelope to the following address:

ACS-Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS)
SBU
P.O. Box 7125
London, KY 40742-7125

Do not mail your departure Form I-94 or supporting information to any United States Consulate or Embassy, to any other BCIS office in the United States, or to any address other than the one above. Only at this location are they able to make the necessary corrections to BCIS records to prevent inconvenience to you in the future.
