Online I-94s are automatically issued if you arrive by airplane or ship.

    • Step 1: Visit: I-94 Website.
    • Step 2: Get most recent I-94 form.
    • Confirm your I-94 has “D/S” and “F-1” like this example. If it is different, stop and contact ISS for help.

    • Step 2: Scan or photograph both the front and back of the paper card for upload.
