If you were working in the U.S. and returned home with your I-94 (white form) or I-94W (green form) in your passport, it means that your departure from the U.S. was not recorded properly. It is your responsibility to correct this record; otherwise, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may conclude you remained in the U.S. beyond your authorized stay. If this happens, the next time you apply to enter the U.S., your visa may be subject to cancellation or you may be returned to the Philippines.
You must contact DHS about your departure from the U.S. You should send them a letter explaining what happened, and include information about when you departed the U.S. You may want to consider sending DHS the following information to support your claim:
- Original boarding passes used to depart the U.S.
- Photocopies of entry/departure stamps in the passport
- Dated pay slips from employer indicated you worked in another country after departing the U.S.
- Dated bank records showing transition in another country after departing the U.S.
- Dated credit card receipts
You must mail legible copies or original materials. If you send original materials, you should retain a copy. Send the letter and additional information to the following address only:
