There's a question about this on Skeptics-SE: The accepted answer gave two examples of people being deported for lying on their forms, including one who didn't mention her history with the SS when she applied for a visa in 1959, and the DoJ caught up with her in 2004 and deported her.

Well firstly, it's a way of stating objections the US has to certain people entering their country. That makes a legal basis. It's their way of saying to every person, upfront "if you do this, we don't want you here". To most of us, that makes no difference, but those who say, have committed genocide or have communicable diseases are made aware of it. ...

Almost certainly your "exit" was recorded when you left the country, despite the fact that they didn't take the card. The airline provides these details to the US government, and they are tracked using that rather than the I-94 itself (this is one of the reasons that the I-94 cards are no longer used when entering by air). Your can confirm this by going to ...

I emailed the embassy of the USA (in the city I was staying before I visited the US), and their answer was that once I left the US soil, there is no procedure to report a departure in case of lost I94. They added that a stamp obtained when entering another country (crossing the land border to Canada in my case) was enough to prove I left the USA. For a ...

You can apply to replace a lost I-94 by filing I-102. It's very expensive though. It might be worth checking the I-94 website in case they have it there, in which case you can print it out; though it's unlikely in your case. How are you leaving the U.S.? According to this page, if you leave by air, you don't have to turn in an I-94. But if you leave by ...

You don't need to worry, as it's all done electronically and automatically now, so you don't need to do anything yourself. From the CBP page I-94 Goes Electronic: Foreign visitors to the U.S. arriving via air or sea no longer need to complete paper Customs and Border Protection Form I-94 or I-94W. Those who need to prove their legal-visitor ...

On the website of the I-94, in the FAQ, it details in what cases your departure is recorded or not, when you got an electronic I94 at the port of entry. If you leave the USA by air or by sea, your departure is recorded electronically. You do not need to specifically turn in the I-94 or any procedure : If you are departing by air or sea, your departure ...

I acctually just found what I was looking for: According to US CBP at I94 FAQ: https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html Q: If I arrive via air but leave via land - thus I dont have paper form I-94 - how to report departure? A: If you have a paper form I-94 and depart by land, you can turn the form into Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) upon entry into ...

I've never been in the exact situation you describe, but Visa Waivers are a very low-maintenence way to get in. My advice would be to explain to the immigration officer when you go into the US. I'm pretty sure the answer will be that they will give you a new I94W on the spot (with of course a new fee, if they still do that). You backup plan would be that ...

According to the current version of this CBP FAQ: If the traveler departs through an airport or sea, they will not need to turn in their form, as Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will receive the information electronically from the airlines. However, this information may only apply to departures now (mid-2014), and not earlier like in August ...

I always leave any stapled stubs and whatnot in my passport, and don't mess with them. In your case, the next time you enter the US the immigration officer will probably take the remaining I-94 (and perhaps ask you what happened when you actually left from that visit). If they don't take it then they probably don't care, since they've migrated to the ...
