U.S. Entry Waiver Services in Calgary

Some people with a criminal record have been able to travel to the U.S. several times without any difficulty. What they may not know is that they are tempting fate every time they cross the border. The only reason they were allowed entry into the United States is that a criminal record check was not performed.

What Happens If I Am Caught Trying To Enter the U.S. with a Criminal Record?

U.S. customs officers frequently perform routine criminal record searches and should they find that you have been convicted of a criminal offence in the past, you may be detained for some time and will in all probability not be granted entry.

Should you get caught again trying to enter the U.S. without a U.S. Entry Waiver, it will be an even more serious matter because you can no longer claim to have been unaware that it was against U.S. federal law to do so. As a result, you may face a longer detention period, interrogation and handcuffing. If you were traveling by air, your tickets might be voided without the possibility of refund or claiming it against travel insurance.

What Is a Calgary U.S. Entry Waiver?

U.S. Entry Waivers are issued by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to people with a criminal record wishing to enter the country. The determination of whether or not a waiver will be granted is based on a review of the complete application package submitted by the individual.

In addition to the application itself, the package must also include several supporting documents. Preparation of the complete application package can take several months, and the counsellors at Pardons Canada can help you to build the best possible application for your particular case.

We recommend beginning the process as far ahead of your intended travel dates as possible since the review of your application by the INS could take many months in addition to the time required to complete your application package.

Do You Need a U.S. Entry Waiver or a Record Suspension?

Getting a Record Suspension is always the preferable option because it also eliminates the possibility of so many other inconveniences associated with having a criminal record. However, since the time required to have a Record Suspension granted can be considerably longer, a U.S. Entry Waiver is often the only choice available to Calgary residents looking to travel to the U.S. sooner.
