Q: Entering the US without filling CBP Customs Declaration Form 6059B ?


When I was entering the US in the previous years I was filling in CBP Customs Declaration Form 6059B (blue one) when I was still on the plane, and then I was always asked to present it to one of the officers at the airport during my entry process.

However on my last trip they didn't had those forms on the plane, and when I was at the airport asking about them I was told (to my surprise) that they don't use them anymore at that airport. I didn't use Automated Passport Control kiosk either, as people were being directed to the immigration windows with just their passports. Later on once I collected my luggage, no one asked me for this form either, and I entered the US without it.

My question is whether I should do something about it? Should I let someone know about that? Or perhaps I should mail this Customs form somewhere?

Few more details if that helps: I'm still in the US on a non-immigrant visa, and I would like to adjust my status to permanent residence.

Thank you
