|Visitor: Around 10yrs ago I was going on a golf trip to North Carolina and I was refused entry to the USA because the border patrol claimed they found traces of marijuana in my car.
I have done several golf trips before and I am not that dumb to even attempt something like this. I felt like I was being harassed because I am a black male and my friend was white. Even the questions I was being asked were ridiculous like why do I come here to golf and not at home, I said it’s winter time so how can you golf in Canada. Also he stated why doesn’t my passport show any entry to the states and I replied because I only needed to provide my birth certificate before(I am born and in raised Canada).
They then proceeded to take my picture and fingerprints gave me a form for my doctor to fill and said I had to pay a fine. I was so appalled by the encounter that I wasn’t going to pay for something that I didn’t do and I would never go back, but now I am 62yrs of age and my wife and I have family we want to visit. Do I require a US entry waiver?
Pardons Canada: You will need an I-192 or US entry waiver to be safe to travel back to the US as you were printed at the border and denied entry. The application process is complicated and expensive but definitely possible and you are eligible. Pardons Canada will help collect the necessary documents and put the application together so it can get approved for a US entry waiver.
