I-94 Form While Departing USA On Connecting Flight

Wed Apr 18, 2007 8:03 pm

Good Day!
Just of curiosity: As far as I understand I have to surrender the remaining slip of I-94 form while checking in on a departing flight, but what if I depart the USA via another USA airport ( for example SFO-MSP-AMS-TLV), I stay in the secure area of the airport, to Whom do I surrender the slip ( at boarding?). I know this process is carried one via US-EXIT, but only few of the airports are equipped with it?
Sorry if this is confusing
Thank you

I can't begin to think of the amount of times when I handed in this little white slip to the immigration officer upon entering the U.S. on my next trip....

However, I believe standard procedure is to hand them in to the airline personell when checking in/boarding the flight that takes you out of the country.

When checking in for your first flight the agent will usually staple the form to your international boarding pass. If not be sure to go to the podium at MSP to hand it in or let them have it as you board the flight home. They usually specifically ask for people to surrender them when boarding flights over the loud speaker anyway.

Also don't forget to pop by the US Visit exit kiosks to check-out (if installed at your departure airport). Again this is done at your point of exit from the US.

As an aside if you are departing to Canada and returning back to the US before heading home then you keep the I94 in your passport and you won't need to complete it again when you re-enter the US from Canada.

Quoting ManchesterMAN (Reply 2):

If you travel to Canada and then fly out of a Canadian airport, you can drop off your I-94 at the Canadian Port of exit as well (I think). Is this true?

Also, does the Canada rule apply only to visits to Canada of 30 days or less?
