If I have a travel authorization through ESTA, do I need to fill out an I-94W?

The ESTA program allowed DHS to eliminate the requirement that Visa Waiver Program (VWP) travelers complete an I-94W prior to being admitted to the United States. CBP has transitioned to paperless processing for VWP travelers arriving by air or sea who have obtained a travel authorization. Most carriers are now capable of receiving and validating messages pertaining to the travelers ESTA status as part of the traveler s boarding status. Travelers entering the U.S. under the VWP who have an approved travel authorization will no longer be given a green I-94W departure coupon in their passport.
