MVA official: Automated I-94 system very helpful

THE automated I-94 system has reduced the waiting time at the Saipan airport’s immigration counters, Marianas Visitors Authority Managing Director Chris Concepcion said.

“MVA is pleased to see any progress in the passenger flow at the airport,” he added.

“That’s a great thing. Kudos to [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] for making it happen.”

Concepcion said because of the automated system, passengers arriving under the CNMI-Guam Visa Waiver Program and the Conditional Parole Program for China and Russia no longer need to complete the paper CBP Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record.

He said as soon as CBP issues an official communication regarding the new policy, MVA will disseminate it to all source markets and MVA members.
