CBP Sending Compliance Emails to Warn VWP Entrants of I-94 Expiration Date

CBP recently announced that it has implemented two new traveler compliance initiatives to allow Visa Waiver Program (VWP) (ESTA) travelers to check the status of their stay in the United States. A new feature added to the I-94 website under the “View Compliance” tab allows VWP travelers to check the status of their admission to the United States. This check will inform travelers of the number of days remaining on their lawful admission or the number of days they have remained past their admitted until date. In addition, CBP is now sending email notification to VWP travelers who are still in the United States 10 days prior to the expiration of their lawful admission period according to its records, and advising that the foreign national must depart the United States unless a pending or approved petition allows the person to remain (such as having applied to adjust as an immediate relative). CBP has taken these steps as part of CBP’s Traveler Compliance Check launched in May 2017 to prevent travelers from overstaying.
