Correcting I-94 Errors: Guidance & Offices in the USA

Find Your Nearest CBP Office for I-94 Corrections

The Customs and Border Protection bureau of the DHS has pointed to relevant provisions of its field instructions regarding how to get I-94 errors corrected. A list of the field offices at which corrections can be made is attached.

Excerpts from the Customs and Border Protection Inspector's Field Manual state:

15.12 Correcting Erroneous Admissions.   
a) General. Authority exists in 8 CFR 101.2 to create a record of a previous admission where none exists or to correct an erroneous record, provided the error was not a result of deliberate deception or fraud on the part of the alien. Erroneous records include, but are not limited to:

  • Misspelled Names on Your I-94
  • Incorrect Date of Birth Entries
  • Visa Classification Errors
  • Unauthorized B-2 Visitor Stay Limitations
  • Incorrect Visa or Petition Expiration Dates

Jurisdiction for correcting such errors made at the ports-of-entry lies with Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Therefore, CBP locations are responsible for the review and issuance of the appropriate documents to correct the error, to include updating the Non-immigrant Information System

(NIIS) as outlined below. Since mail-in procedures are not available, aliens will be allowed to report to the nearest CBP deferred inspection office or port-of-entry, regardless of where the actual document was issued. In many instances, the CBP location of the traveler's final destination where the discrepancy will be resolved may not be the port-of- entry of first arrival.
