How to Retrieve I-94
Get your passport and printer ready! Go to www.cbp.gov/i94 and enter following info:
- Family Name
- First Name
- Birth Date
- Passport Number
- Country of Issuance (This is your country of citizenship. It is NOT the country your passport was issued at)

Submit Print Out of I-94 to ISS
Please drop off or email ISS the print out of your I-94 (an example shown below). ISS can keep a copy in your student file just in case you lose your passport. Students who lost their passports were so glad that ISS had a copy!
