Important - Advisory Notes
Upon entering a US Port of Entry:
You will be asked to present documentation to a U.S. Customs
and Border Protection (CBP) Inspections Officer. Before you
leave the inspections area, examine the ink stamping on your
passport page to ensure you have not been given tourist status.
Badges cannot not be issued to individual holding Waiver for
Tourist (WT) or B-2 (tourist visa status. If you receive a WT
or B-2 ink stamping in your passport, politely explain you are
in the U.S. to conduct business at US federally-funded
laboratory which requires you hold a business status (Waiver for
Business (WB) or B-1). You may ask for a supervisor if the CBP
Inspections Officer does not understand or is unable to make the
correction in your passport.
After entry into the US, you should be able to access and
print your electronic I-94 Arrival/Departure Record at
