Port of Entry Assistance

Each foreign national and lawful permanent resident (LPR) who enters the United States must be inspected at a port of entry (POE) by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). CBP officers process millions of individuals each year and handle a variety of problems in reviewing the admissibility of nonimmigrants and LPRs. CBP may confiscate the green card and/or passport of an LPR who has remained outside of the United States for too long or has otherwise abandoned permanent residence. After the CBP officer inspects an applicant for admission to the United States, an I-94 card is issued and/or a stamp in the individual’s passport with the admission or denial information regarding entry.
