Important Reminders for Attendees Travelling Into and Out of the United States:

  1. It is recommended that you allow at least three hours for transfer in any US airport, to re-check your luggage and/or proceed to the US Customs and Border Protection Services for immigration processing.
  2. Please note that the Form I-94 went paperless in April 2013. Travelers will be provided with a CBP admission stamp on their travel document. If a traveler needs a copy of their I-94 (record of admission) for verification of alien registration, immigration status or employment authorization, it can be obtained here. For detailed information, please check I-94 Automation.
