From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arrival Card is a legal document used by a country's immigration authorities to provide passenger identification and a record of a person’s entry to a country. [1] It also provides information on health and character requirements for non-citizens entering a particular country. [2]

Arrival Cards are also known as Incoming Passenger Cards and Disembarkation Cards.
