Where to File

NOTE:  If U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued you Form I-94, I-94W, or I-95 with incorrect information (ex: misspelled name, incorrect date of birth, visa classification, or date of admission), you should not file Form I-102. You will need to go to the nearest CBP port of entry (POE) or the nearest CBP deferred inspection office (DIO), in person, to have the information corrected.  For locations and hours of operation visit the CBP’s Web site at www.cbp.gov.

If you were admitted at an air or sea port of entry and issued an electronic Form I-94, you should go to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Web site at www.cbp.gov/I94 in order to obtain a paper version of Form I-94, including replacement Forms I-94.  Follow the instructions you received from CBP on how to do this.
