Visitor: I’m just wondering how much does it cost to get a waiver to enter to USA. Is it a pardon better than a waiver?
Let me tell you a little bit of my story so you can tell me how much does it cost. I am originally from Mexico. I lived in USA for more than 12 years, illegally, I had two kids over there, but I left USA voluntary and moved to Canadá where I asked for refuge status and I was accepted but when I was permanent resident I tried to get a nexus card but it was denied.
Nexus was denied because when I had my appointment at the border of USA I gave to the officer the passport of my kids, who ask me, what was my status in USA and I told him the truth. I lived there illegally. He told us to wait in the waiting area. Then he asked us a bunch of questions and finally made us sign the papers. He told us that we couldn’t enter to the United States for ten years and we couldn’t enter to the United States because if we do we are going to be banned for another 5 more years. Finally he mentioned to us that when we’ll get the citizenship of Canada we need to find a lawyer and the lawyer will help us, because he knows what to do, he said.
Pardons Canada: Since you overstayed your welcome, you will require an I-194 or US Entry Waiver to return to the US. You will need to be a Canadian Citizen in order to be eligible to apply for the US Waiver. You will also need your ban to be lifted with an I-212 form. We can help you with both applications so that you can be safe to return to the US to visit your family.
