Part 9 of Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, requires applicants to list all periods of travel (in excess of 24 hours).
In many cases it can be difficult to remember specific travel dates over a period of five years. But the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) website can help some people retrieve these records.
CBP gathers travelers’ I-94 arrival/departure information automatically from their electronic travel records. This information is gathered electronically for air and sea travelers. However, if you entered the U.S. at a land border port of entry, a paper form I-94 is still issued. To view your electronic travel records for the last five years:
- Go to the CBP I-94 Page
- Enter your name, birth date, passport number and country that issued the passport.
- Click “Get Travel History” to get five years of travel records

If you cannot find electronic travel records, you must do you best to estimate the exact days of your travel. Check with relatives you may have visited, review credit card statements or try to recover old travel records from airline or transportation company.
