E-Verify Alert: I-94 Processing Delays

Please note that USCIS’ E-Verify system is currently experiencing delays in obtaining up-to-date Form I-94 information. Form I-94 is the arrival-departure record issued to certain non-immigrants, and the Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) current processing time for entering the I-94 information into its database is 30 days or more. E-Verify uses this informatoin to confirm work authorization and CBP’s delays in updating the database may result in an increase in E-Verify Tentative Nonconfirmations (TNC). E-Verify users are advised that the delay in recording Form I-94 information should not affect how they complete the Form I-9 or an E-Verify case. For more information, see the CBP website or contact CBP at (877) CBP-5511.
