If U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued your Form I-94, Form I-94W, or Form I-95 with incorrect information (for example, a misspelled name, incorrect date of birth, visa classification, or date of admission), do not file Form I-102. You will need to go to the nearest CBP port of entry or deferred inspection office to have the information corrected. For locations and hours of operation, visit the CBP’s website.
If you were admitted at an air or sea port of entry and received an electronic Form I-94, you should go to CBP’s Form I-94 page to get a paper version of your Form I-94, including a replacement Form I-94. Follow the instructions you received from CBP on how to do this.
Form I-94W for admissions at airports or seaports is only available if you were admitted on or before June 28, 2010.
File this form with a USCIS lockbox. For more information on filing locations, see our Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-102 page.
You may pay the fee with a money order, personal check, cashier’s check or pay by credit card using Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions. If you pay by check, you must make your check payable to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
When you send a payment, you agree to pay for a government service. Filing and biometric service fees are final and non-refundable, regardless of any action we take on your application, petition, or request, or if you withdraw your request. Use our Fee Calculator to help determine your fee.
Pay each filing fee separately. We are transitioning to electronically processing immigration benefit requests, which requires us to use multiple systems to process your package. Because of this, you must pay each filing fee separately for any form you submit. We may reject your entire package if you submit a single, combined payment for multiple forms.
You do not need to pay a fee:
- To request a correction to your Form I-94, Form I-94W, or Form I-95 if we made the error on your document through no fault of your own; or
- If you are a nonimmigrant member of the U.S. armed forces, or you were participating in a North Atlantic Treaty Organization or Partnership for Peace military program under the Status of Forces Agreement, and you are requesting an initial Form I-94.
Please do not submit this checklist with your Form I-102. It is an optional tool to use as you prepare your form, but does not replace statutory, regulatory, and form instruction requirements. We recommend that you review these requirements before completing and submitting your form. Do not send original documents unless specifically requested in the form instructions or applicable regulations.
If you submit any documents (copies or original documents, if requested) in a foreign language, you must include a full English translation along with a certification from the translator verifying that the translation is complete and accurate, and that they are competent to translate from the foreign language to English.
