An I-94 application form is the I-102 form that is used to apply for a replacement I-94 arrival and departure form that is issued by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. As of 2015, this form is issued electronically at the port of arrival for sea and air travelers.
The I-94 is used by an international student to prove his legal visitor status to the school or university that he is attending. This data can be accessed electronically by the organization through the Internet by accessing the arrival and departure records kept by the CBP. Traveler information is transmitted electronically in advance of arrival.
