List of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Codes, Meaning

When you travel to the US and arrive at a US Port of Entry(PoE) location, you would go through the US port of entry procedures.  In the past, you may have filled out an I-94 form,  or sometimes, you may go through Automated Control Process (APC) Kiosks and after that be interviewed by a CBP Officer. 

In the past, the CBP officer, after a short interaction or interview, may have put a stamp on your passport in the past. If you look closely, the stamp will have a three letter code on it on the top, that indicates the port of entry location or border checkpoint of the US that you used to enter America.

CBP Pilot program – No Physical Ink Stamps in Passport

CBP started a pilot program in August 2022 called the ‘Simplified Arrival Program’, where they no longer put in any physical ink stamp in passports when someone arrives at the US port of entry. The plan is going forward, CBP wants to eliminate stamping passports with physical stamps.

You may not see the CBP codes stamped on the passport if such is the case. These would be captured as part of the US Travel History and users can check the I-94 Official Website

Many US PoE Locations now do not put any stamps in passports for F, M and J Students. Read CBP article

Common FAQs

I do not have a physical stamp on my passport. Can I find my Port of Entry Code?

No, the electronic I-94 will not have the Port of Entry(POE) code. You cannot find out the location of entry from the I-94

Is there any way, I can find out my Port of Entry Code with the Electronic Process and no Entry Stamps?

You can go to the Official I-94 website and check for the US Travel History by entering all your details. The system will give out all the details, including the Port of Entry Code and the place you entered the US. See below screenshot that lists the location, it has the POE Code. US I-94 Travel History Check online

Any implication of not having PoE Code on my Passport and Physical Entry Stamp?

No, there is no implication to you or your stay in the US, if you do not have the PoE stamp or PoE code on your passport. The process now is completely electronic and it does not have any impact.
