Enter the US

You can be arrested and detained, deported, and have your property or vehicle confiscated if you enter the United States with a criminal record. Moreover, you and any person who transports you across a U.S. border can be barred from ever entering the United States. A waiver eliminates these risks. Waivers are valid for periods ranging from one to five years.

Travel to the United States

A waiver is a document from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) allowing you to legally enter United States. If you have a criminal record, you are generally inadmissible to enter the United States...or even over the United States. You should be aware that a Record Suspension is not recognized by the United States.

Keep Your Car!

Without a US Entry Waiver, your vehicle and any other property with you at the time can be confiscated by border security. You, and persons accompanying you, can be disallowed from entering the United States indefinitely. Beyond deportation, there is also the risk of being detained by border officials. A US Waiver protects you from these inconveniences, and can be valid for periods as long as five years.

Requirements

US Entry Waiver Process

We compile the necessary personal information and create a computer file specific to your case. We complete all the necessary forms and help you obtain the documents required to support your application. The requirements are different at each district DHS office and we will guide you through the process.

Once all the documents and letters are collected, we advise you of the appropriate district DHS office to submit your petition for a US Entry Waiver. Normally, a waiver takes six to ten months from the time the application is filed with the DHS. If you have urgent reasons for entering the United States, call our offices to determine if it is possible to expedite the process.
