Recent Update to Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record Automation

To increase efficiency, reduce operating costs and streamline the admission process of foreign nationals into the U.S., U.S. Customs and Border Protection ("CBP") began on April 26, 2013, automating CBP Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record. Form I-94 is the Arrival/Departure Record issued to foreign nationals who are admitted to the U.S.

CBP(関税及び国境保安局-Customs and Border Protection)は、効率化、コスト軽減、入国手続きの簡素化などを目的に、2013年4月26日から、I-94書式を自動化(コンピューターでのデータ化)することになりました。

Foreign nationals entering the U.S. by air and sea will no longer receive the paper form upon arrival, except in limited circumstances. The traveler will be provided with a CBP admission stamp on their travel document. If a traveler needs a copy of their I-94 for verification of alien registration, immigration status or employment authorization, they can obtain one from www.cbp.gov/I94. Since automation only affects air and sea arrivals, a paper Form I-94 will still be issued at the land border ports of entry. Also, CBP will continue to issue paper Form I-94s to refugees, certain asylees and parolees, and whenever CBP determines the issuance of a paper form is appropriate.

今後は、ある非常に限られた場合を除き、空と海から米国へ入国する外国人にはI-94書式が発行されず、その代わりに、CBPが、パスポートや他の渡航文書(ビザやアドヴァンス・パロール等)に入国許可のスタンプを押すことになります。渡航者が、外国人登録や移民上又は雇用上の入国条件の証明のためにI-94書式が必要な場合には、www.cbp.gov/I94より、一度だけI-94書式を取得することができます。このI-94書式の自動化は、空と海から入国する外国人のみが対象になることから、陸で入国する外国人には、これまでどおりI-94書式が発行されます。また、難民、亡命者や仮の入国条件で入国する者(グリーンカード申請者等)の一部、さらに、CBPが適当と考える場合にも、これまでどおりI-94書式が発行されます。

CBP will continue to create an I-94 record for all travelers who require one, but the paper form will be created in an electronic format and not provided to the traveler. CBP will provide each traveler with an admission stamp that shows the date of admission, class of admission and admitted-until date.

CBPは、これまでどおり、I-94上の記録を取りますが、記録は、電子的に保管されるだけで、渡航者には交付されません。CBPの入国許可のスタンプには、入国日、入国条件、滞在期間の満了日が記されます。

Travelers will not need to do anything differently when they depart the U.S. If they have a paper Form I-94, they should surrender it as usual. If they were not issued a paper Form I-94, the departure will be electronically recorded from the manifest information provided by the carrier or by CBP.

米国を離れるときには、I-94書式を所持されている方は、これまでどおり、離米時に必ずそれを提出してください。I-94書式を発行されなかった方は、離米の事実は、航空会社や船会社又はCBPが提供する証明書に基づき電子的に記録されます。

If a traveler was admitted incorrectly to the U.S., they should contact their BGD Immigration Attorney in order to obtain instructions on how to correct their admission record as soon as possible.
