Is there a way to check my visit record to the USA if I am travelling on an ESTA ? I tried here: https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/history-search but I don't think this is the correct page and it certainly has no record of me. Background: The airline I was travelling with made a hash of our check-in and as this was the only time (during this trip) my attempt to leave the US was recorded, I'd like to verify that the US knows I've left the country. Edit: I travelled several times to the US within the last year, always by air. None of the trips show up. I have a fairly standard name (all ascii characters, no hyphens etc) and I've tried putting both my first name and my first and middle name in the 'first name' box, and I always get " No record found for traveler." as the error. Another edit: So on a whim I didn't put the country that issued the passport (Germany) in the box, but the country I live in (UK) and then it finds my records. Now German passport numbers look very different from UK ones, so I have no idea how this happened -- I thought the passport gets scanned and it collects this information automatically. I'm not impressed.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Did you last leave the US more than 5 years ago? The dhs.gov site says that "I-94 travel history includes up to 100 arrivals and departures spanning the last five years." It's certainly the correct page. – phoog Sep 5 '17 at 12:31
  • With regard to your edit, it now seems that we need more information to understand why your records are not being returned. What do you see when you try the search? If you have been in the US several times, why was this "the only time [your] attempt to leave the US was recorded"? The form asks for "first (given) name"; do you have more than one of these, and, if so, did you try with all of them? – phoog Sep 5 '17 at 13:08
  • This is obviously not a duplicate because the asker knows about the I-94 site and is nonetheless having trouble finding her records. Voting to reopen. – phoog Sep 5 '17 at 15:24
  • The link on the 'duplicate' question doesn't even work any more. – Marianne013 Sep 5 '17 at 16:21
  • I've fixed that link. – phoog Sep 5 '17 at 16:56
