I-94 card
A small green or white card given to all nonimmigrants when they enter the United States. The I-94 card serves as evidence that a nonimmigrant has entered legally. It is stamped with a date indicating how long the nonimmigrant may stay for that particular trip. (It is this date—and not the expiration date of the visa — that must be followed in determining when the immigrant must leave.) A new I-94 card with a new date is issued each time the nonimmigrant legally enters the United States. Canadian visitors are not normally issued I-94 cards.
