OMB Number: 1651–0111. Form Numbers: I–94 and I–94W. Abstract: CBP Forms I–94 (Arrival/ Departure Record) and I–94W (Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Arrival/ Departure Record) are used to document a traveler’s admission into the United States. These forms are filled out by aliens and are used to collect information on citizenship, residency, and contact information. The data elements collected on these forms enable the DHS to perform its mission related to the screening of alien visitors for potential risks to national security, and the determination of admissibility to the United States. The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) applies to aliens traveling to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and requires that VWP travelers provide information electronically to CBP before embarking on travel to the United States. Travelers who are entering under the VWP in the air or sea environment, and who have a travel authorization obtained through ESTA, may forgo completing the paper Form I– 94W. CBP now gathers data collected on the paper Form I–94 from existing automated sources in lieu of requiring passengers arriving by air or sea to submit a paper I–94 upon arrival. The paper I–94 is still required from travelers entering the United States at a land border. Passengers can access and print their electronic I–94 via the Web site at www.cbp.gov/I94. CBP proposes to revise some of the questions on ESTA and on Form I–94W in order to make them more easily understandable to respondents, and to collect more detailed information about health and security issues. CBP also proposes to remove some questions from ESTA and from Form I–94W that are no longer relevant. ESTA can be accessed at http:// www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/id_visa/ esta/.

Current Actions: This submission is being made to revise the information collected on ESTA and on Form I–94W by adding some new health and security questions; by revising some of the existing questions; and by removing some questions that are no longer relevant.
