Trucs et astuces - Que faire en cas d'erreur I-94?


C'est surement connu de certains membres du forum mais j'ai été confronté à un problème lors de mon retour en France à LAX. Le I-94 de mon fils était totalement faux:
1/ Mauvais type visa (B2 au lieu de L2)
2/ Mauvaise date pour la fin du visa

C'est la première fois que ça m'arrive en 2 ans, l'officier a l'immigration devait être vraiment distrait  :)

Voici la procédure pour corriger ce genre de problème, il n'est pas nécessaire de se rendre en personne a l'immigration, un simple mail a cette adresse est suffisant (du moins si vous arrivez à LAX):

Bien entendu, vous devez scanner un certain nombre de documents, mais tout a été réglé une heure après avoir envoyé mon mail.
***Please follow the instructions below.  Failure to send ALL the required documents will result in your I-94 correction request not being processed***

Frequently Asked Questions:

Replacement I-94’s and validity of paper I-94’s

Q:  I arrived in the US prior to 2013 and was issued a paper I-94 but lost it.  How do I get a replacement?

A:  CBP stopped issuing paper I-94’s in May 2013 and the system became automated.  If you were issued a paper I-94 (May 2013 and older) and need a replacement, you can request a replacement with US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) using Form I-102.   The form and instructions can be found at

Q:  I went to the California Department of Motor Vehicles to renew my Driver’s License and was told I needed an electronic I-94.  I only have the paper I-94.

A:  Non-immigrants who were issued paper I-94’s who are still in status (F-1 students) are not required to have an electronic I-94.  The paper I-94 is valid for the duration of your status and is valid proof of your admission .  If you encounter this problem at the DMV or Social Security Administration Offices, ask to speak to a supervisor and have the supervisor contact the Los Angeles Deferred Inspection Unit at 213-830-5972.

Q:  I received an I-94 from USCIS or ICE as a result of a parole or an extension of status.  How do I get an extension of my parole or a copy of the I-94?

A:  CBP is not responsible for the issuance or replacement of I-94’s that were issued by USCIS or another DHS component.  To request a copy of your I-94 issued by another DHS component, you must request it from the agency that issued you the I-94.

Extension of Status

Q:  When I arrived, the CBP officer limited my admission because my passport was expiring.  I renewed my passport while in the US and now have sufficient time to get a full admission.  Can I get my admission corrected?

A: No. CBP Deferred Inspection Offices are not responsible for providing extensions on admissions that were limited due to passport validity. Admitted until dates limited because of passport validity are not CBP errors.  CBP cannot give you an admission for a passport you did not present during the inspection process.  To receive the full admission date based on your new passport, you must depart the US and re-enter using the new passport OR you can file an extension of your current non-immigrant admission with USCIS using form I-539.  The form and instructions can be found at

Travel History Errors

Please be advised that CBP documents travel from a variety of sources. The travel history provided on CBP's I-94 website is only a tool to assist the public and is not an official record for legal purpose. The following travel may not be reflected: land border arrivals/departures, closed loop cruise arrivals/departures, air carrier reservation updates, and USCIS updates, changes of status, and extensions of stay or adjustments of status.  If you need an official copy of your travel history you may request them at
