Form I-94 the form that keeps the arrival and departure records for visitors to the United States. Above all, it is issued to the aliens who are admitted to the U.S. The visitor regardless of their situation must leave the U.S. on the date stamped on Form I-94 or before.
To make matters faster, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection automated the form. Therefore, you won’t get a paper form. Instead, the I-94 admission record is handled electronically in the CBP system. Once needed, the CBP will verify the document electronically and re-validate everything. This also includes other things. For instance, your visa and necessary information for it, such as the expiration date and date of issuance.
Visitors from Canada and Mexico must apply for a Form I-9 by themselves as it isn’t automated. The automation is only done to those who enter the county via plane or sea. You can print your own I-94 Form from the CBP website.
