IMPORTANT REMINDER: Fill out the Employee Name on Page 2 of the Form I-9

As you are already aware, there was a new Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) released in March. On the second page of the form (under Section 2), there is a space where the employee name must be completed. We're finding that on most of the forms we're receiving, that space has been left blank. Please be sure to include the employee name on the second page of the form in the space provided.

Please contact your HR liaison with questions.

Arrival/ Departure Form I-94 Process to be Automated

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced that it will automate the I-94 arrival/departure record. This new process is expected to begin the end of April/beginning of May. Once the automated I-94 is implemented, an electronic I-94 record will be created when a student/scholar arrives at the port of entry in the U.S. The student/scholar will receive an admission stamp in his/her passport, which will reflect the class of admission (such as F-1, J-1, H-1B), the date of admission and the admit-to date or D/S. A paper I-94 will no longer be issued.

A handout will be distributed at the ports of entry to notify students/scholars about the change and provide information about the I-94 website. Students and Scholars will be directed to this website to print out a hard copy of the I-94. You will need the hard copy of the I-94 in order to complete the I-9.

For more information on the process, go to http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/id_visa/i-94_instructions/i94_rollout.xml
