Since August 15, 2022, in New York, CBP officers no longer stamp the passports of arriving passengers.
- Travelers who inquire about proof of admission can be directed to the I-94 webpage https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home , where they can print an form I-94* or the CBP One™ mobile app where they can use their mobile device to capture a screenshot of their form I-94.
- The admission stamp will continue to be used in limited required circumstances, such as processing immigrant visas, or upon the specific request of a traveler.
*A Form I-94 is a record of a traveler's arrivals and departures to and from the United States. Customs Border Protection's Office of Field Operations, a subdivision of U.S. CBP, is responsible for issuing the I-94 form. It is issued primarily in electronic format, but also in paper format for those entering by land. The form, in the form of a small white card or stamp on the visitor's passport, indicates the date until which he or she is allowed to remain in the United States and proves that he or she has legally entered the country.
