Form I-94 copy to ISSS for review

Date of Announcement: December 4, 2012

Starting today, we are requesting a copy of Form I-94, Nonimmigrant Arrival-Departure Record, from all Penn-sponsored individuals in H-1B, E-3, O-1 or TN status for all future entries to the United States for which a new Form I-94 is issued.

This is to ensure that the immigration status and the period of authorized stay granted at the port of entry are accurate and in accordance with your immigration documents, e.g. Form I-797 Notice of Approval, certified LCA, etc.  

Please send a scanned copy of your Form I-94 via email to ***within five days*** of your next and any subsequent entries to the United States for which a new Form I-94 is issued.   We are then able to detect any notation errors or changes that may affect your immigration status and length of stay.  This will allow us the opportunity to advise you in a timely manner as to what corrective steps are necessary.
