I was traveling to the US after 4 years on a Business visa with new passport and valid US visa in Old Passport. As I was checking my old passport for visa stamps at the US port of entry, I could not really find my previous stamp that was done in the US. I was kind of really worried about not able to find the Stamp that they do at the Port of entry. I could not really recall what exactly happened four years ago…
Just to be safe, I was searching online, how do I check my status and travel history…that’s when I stumbled upon the I-94 section of the CBP website, where I was able to retrieve my Travel History to the US in the last 5 years. Thankfully, I found my travel history and I printed that info, just in case, there are some issues with their system :-). If you are not sure like me, it is always a good idea to check your US travel history on the I-94 section of the website. Below is a step-by-step process.

What if You do not see your US Travel Details properly?
Important Caution: The info that is displayed on the I-94 website is for public consumption and not an official form of info. If something is wrong, there is nothing that you can do, no action is required. In my case itself, I see missing information about some of my arrivals and some details of the airports. But, there is nothing I can do. So, take this info with a grain of salt and do not get into panic mode, if you see something is missing here.
If you are really worried, then you can email CBP with the specifics, they will be able to help you with more info. DO NOT worry.
Again, do not worry, if your Travel History does not fully reflect in the system. You will be fine. You will anyways have stamps on your passport, so nothing to worry.
