Answer Key
Task 1 The I-94 Form Immediately before you cross the border into the United States, a flight attendant will give you the I-94 (Arrival/Departure Record) for you to complete in the airplane before you land. When you land, the inspector will stamp the I-94 form with "D/S" (duration of status). This means that you may stay in the USA. until you complete your studies. The I-94 form is only a small piece paper, usually stapled to your passport. Other than your passport, this form is the most critical one you'll receive. Keep the I-94 form with your passport at all times. The I-94 will have a number written in the top left hand corner, which the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) will use to keep track of your records. This number is known as the Arrival Number, Departure Number, and Admission Number, and it will remain with you throughout your studies or temporary employment in the United States. The following information will be required on the I-94 form: 1. Family Name 2. First (Given) Name 3. Birth Date (Day/Month/Year) 4. Country of Citizenship 5. Sex (Male or Female) 6. Passport Number 7. Airline and Flight Number 8. Country Where You Live 9. City Where You Boarded 10. City Where Visa Was Issued 11. Date Visa Issued (Day/Month/Year) 12. Address While in the United States (Number and Street) 13. City and State 14. Family Name 15. First (Given) Name 16. Birth Date (Day/Month/Year) 17. Country of Citizenship Custom Declaration Form When you arrive in or return to the United States, you will have to go through US Customs and Immigration. US Customs is the division of the US Department of Treasury that is responsible for obtaining all duties and taxes on items imported into the United States. On the plane flight, you will be given a Customs Declaration Form to complete. You will give this form to the customs officer when you arrive at the airport terminal. The official will ask you about your purpose in this country. Your answers should be short, direct and honest. Avoid giving extra information. The officer will ask for more details only if needed. Customs officers may examine luggage, cargo and travellers if they suspect someone is smuggling items illegally into this country. Many airports have "sniffing" dogs that search for drugs or agricultural products.

Answer Key
In the Airport Terminal When you arrive at the terminal, you will enter the passport control area. • Passport Control: Get into the line for non-US residents. You will need your passport, your I94 form and your customs declaration form. When you get up to the immigration inspection desk, give all these forms to the officer. Your passport will be stamped upon entry and your information entered into the Immigration & Naturalization Services database. • Baggage Claim: After this step, you'll move along into the baggage claim area to pick up your luggage. At this point, you may want to use a few of those quarters for a luggage cart. Look for the area marked with your flight number. Collect your luggage. Then move along to the customs clearance area. • Customs: The customs inspection area is located outside baggage claims. You'll present your customs declaration form to the officer, and once approved you may move on to the arrivals area. • Arrivals: From customs, follow the signs to the international arrivals area. You'll find rest rooms, ground transportation and connecting flights. (If you need to take another US flight, you won't have to clear immigration and customs again.)

In the film the following questions are heard: 1. What’s the purpose of your visit? 2. Business or Pleasure? 3. How long will you be staying? 4. Could I see your return ticket? 5. Please, have your I-94 form filled out. 6. Please, have your passport, immigration forms, I-94 and Customs declaration.
