US Entry Waiver

What is a US Entry Waiver?

Crossing the American border should be a simple matter of showing our passport and enjoying the rest of the journey. Instead, agents at the border are tasked with filtering out what they see as high-risk entrants. If you currently have (or have ever had) a criminal record, it will make you stand out as a risk – and get you turned around without a single moment’s hesitation. A US Waiver, also known as I-192 – Application for Advance Permission to Enter as a Non-Immigrant is an application for those who have become inadmissible to the United States. A Canadian with a criminal record may need to apply for a US Waiver if they have become inadmissible or cannot apply for a Record Suspension yet because they have not met the eligibility requirements.

Why do I Need a US Entry Waiver to Travel?

Without the proper paperwork, you risk being denied entrance to the US with a criminal record. Obtaining a US Entry Waiver helps to ensure that you can travel across the border without any hold up or denial. You may need a Waiver if you:
  • Have had a criminal record in Canada
  • Have had a criminal record in the USA
  • Were denied entry to, or were deported from the US
  • Were banned from entering the United States for any period of time
  • Were involved in a border crossing incident (such as a narcotics possession)
Don’t risk getting denied at the border! Overcome your criminal record and experience peace-of-mind travel with a US Entry Waiver.
