Every day we receive calls and emails from Americans who are denied entry at the Canadian border due to having a criminal record in the US.
If this is the case then you will require a deemed rehabilitation waiver to re-enter Canada without any problems. This application is time consuming and complicated but we can help make that process easier and complete the application on your behalf.
Here is an example of a recent inquiry we had from a Canadian woman who is dating an American that tried to enter Canada with a DUI and was denied entry due to his criminal record:
I am a Canadian citizen who is dating an American. However, when he tried to enter Canada to see me, he was denied entry due to a DUI on his record. It happened about 6.5 years ago, and so he needs to engage the process to apply for a Canadian waiver. Do you have any guidance on that?
This is a recent development.
This DUI that occurred approximately 6.5 years ago. He is a member of the United States Air Force, and I am a serving RCAF member as well. He has not even received a speeding ticket since the incident
