Customs and Border Protection Introduces Web Enhancements

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announce this week that it has enhanced features on its I-94 website to add new five-year travel history data for nonimmigrant visitors. This online availability of such data may make it easier for nonimmigrants to get access to such information; currently, they may be required to fine a Freedom of Information Act request for the information.

“CBP has seen a steady growth in trade and travel in recent years – including a nearly 9 percent increase in non-immigrant arrivals since 2011,” said R. Gil Kerlikowske, Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection. “We continue to work to manage these growing volumes by automating processes, going paperless, and employing mobile technology to maximize our resources and ease processing times for the traveling public.”
