Arrival Date Not Records in I-94 (Cruise trip)


Recommended Posts

We went on a 3 day cruise to Mexico in November, 2017. We departed from the port on 11/9/2017, and that date is recorded and shown in the travel history. We arrived back to US at the same port on 11/12/2017 but this date is not shown on the travel history. I-94 doesn't show this new arrival date. I-94 still shows our previous entry date into US as arrival date.


I need to apply for H1 B extension. Would this be an issue? How can I correct this issue.


Thank you for your suggestions.

I contacted the Deferred Inspections department in Los Angeles over the phone, and they mentioned that a new I-94 would be issued only if one stays in Mexico or Canada for more than 30 days.

Since I stayed in Mexico only for a day, it was not considered a meaningful departure and hence a new I-94 was not issued.
