US Waiver

There are many reasons a person may be ineligible to enter the U.S. You could be denied entry if you have a communicable disease, if you have a criminal record for crimes of moral turpitude (age 18 or older), for possession of or trafficking in a controlled substance, if you have any involvement with terrorism or terrorist organizations (no waivers can be approved for this category), if you have trafficked in persons, been involved in money laundering, might become a public charge because of limited financial resources, have been previously removed (deported) or have overstayed a previous period of admission to the U.S. Again, this list is not comprehensive and you should use the above link to read the complete list.

Why Apply For a U.S. Entry Waiver?

Every day, thousands of Canadians travel to United States of America for business and leisure. However, over the last decade, there has been increased concern over cross border security. If you have a criminal record in Canada, you may be required to apply for a US Entry Waiver to legally travel into the United States of America. Having criminal record charges being laid in Canada automatically makes an individual inadmissible to the United States. Even if your charges were later withdrawn, dismissed, stayed, absolutely or conditionally discharged and regardless of whether the criminal charges ended up in a conviction, the US Customs officer can deny your entry.

We can help you in getting your criminal record check from the RCMP and further in completing your application. For more information you can visit https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/760/~/entry-into-the-u.s.---canadian-with-criminal-record-or-overstay,-waiver.
