In simple terms, a US entry waiver is an official document issued by U.S. Customs and Border Protection that will allow a person that was deemed inadmissible to legally enter the United States. This document is issued from the Admissibility Review Office and will grant you permission to journey to and hopefully allow you to enter the USA. Now people have been misinformed by the competitors that a US Entry waiver will automatically allow you entry. This is not necessarily the case since the waiver has to be valid and cover the specific reason(s) for inadmissibility. CBP officers can still deny you entry irregardless of the fact that you have a waiver or not.
Please note that granting entry to a foreign national is at the complete discretion of CBP and they have the final approval authority as to whether you are allowed entry or not. Chances are though that you will likely be allowed to enter but it is not a 100% guarantee. This is based on the fact that there are many areas of inadmissibility and some of them cannot be overcome with a waiver. Having an approved waiver is not a 100% guarantee of not being denied entry to the USA.
Note that not every criminal offence will even require a US Entry Waiver. In some cases, you may not even need one or could qualify for the Lifetime Clearance. It is entirely possible that CBP may have mistakenly deemed you inadmissible to the United States.
A us entry waiver form I-192 and supplements must be filed either electronically using E-Safe, or in-person at select U.S. Borders. Either way, C.B.P will collect the fee, take your fingerprints and review the application. Always bring your Canadian passport when you come to the border. You are also required to submit specific supporting documents with your application. C.B.P will refuse to accept your application if it is missing specific documents. Currently, the government fee is $585usd and it must always be paid per application. However, please note that some waiver applications have a USA govt fee of 930usd.
The Admissibility Review Office (“A.R.O.”).
The A.R.O., which is located in the Arlington, Virginia, is part of C.B.P. Since 2007, it has been the sole agency charged with adjudicating waiver applications.
The D.H.S. changed the location from where they had been formerly adjudicated(Sweetgrass Montana).
Specifically, there had been numerous internal adjudication problems at that particular border with the cases. The A.R.O has the discretion to grant or deny your waiver application. They must adjudicate your application pursuant to specific legal guidelines and the Board of Immigration Appeals case: Matter of Hranka (April 6, 1978).
In that case, the B.I.A. set forth three (3) factors that must be weighed together in deciding whether or not to grant a us entry waiver application:
In order to present the strongest us entry waiver case, our Immigration Law Intelligence Analysts have put together a comprehensive application package using our own specially designed checklist. It is always our job to prepare and make the best possible case presentation to CBP based on your specific circumstances. You will note that not every waiver case is the same. Specifically, each case is prepared/tailored to your individual needs.
An example is that a case for Sexual Assault is prepared/approached differently, as opposed to one like Armed Robbery. CBP will use differing adjudication standards per the criminal conviction(s). The showing of certain rehabilitative techniques is critical in whatever border crossing us entry waiver case that is presented to CBP. There are als other critical factors that have to be addressed in waiver cases.
Discount Waiver Companies don’t understand this and usually prepare every case the same exact way. We feel that this is foolish since it only hurts the success of your case. Obviously, CBP will look at a case like Child Molestation differently as opposed to something like stealing a Chocolate Bar from London Drugs. You also waste your money doing it this way since you pay with your hard earned dollars in this challenging economy.
We are different because we prepare an actual waiver presentation case to CBP for your us entry waiver case. We also differ because we used to enforce these same federal and state laws when we formerly worked as law enforcement officers for the American system in a federal and state law enforcement capacity. We may add certain case specific supplements that will strengthen your case. We want to ensure that you are always approved for either a Permanent Clearance or 5 Year Waiver.
We also get an inside perspective on waiver cases from our associates/affiliates that have formerly worked for CBP and other USA government agencies. Our job is to also aggressively work for you on your behalf to ensure that you are the winner. We only work for you and not CBP. A US Entry waiver application does have specific criteria that will have to be met before it is issued by CBP. There are some factors that will increase or decrease your chances of being approved.
Type of offence
Proper preparation of your US Entry Waiver packet is the key to success. We excel in this area and is the reason why 99% of our cases get approved. We have specialized knowledge in this area, and we have staff members and associates that formerly worked for Homeland Security and US federal and state law enforcement agencies. This gives us the home field advantage over competitors since we can visualize your case through the eyes of Homeland Security and examine it as we were the adjudicating officers. We will put your case through the same stress test that they use to decide if you will be approved.
This results in the fact that your case has a very high degree of probability of getting approved. Remember we aggressively work for you on your behalf. We no longer work for the American government as law enforcement officers, and we view CBP as the opponent. We have all received the same law enforcement training as themselves and use this invaluable talent to facilitate approval of your complex waiver case. We have started in this business 1995 as this is when some of our staff members became experienced from working for and with American law enforcement agencies to include INS, US Customs, The US Dept of Defense and Washington State law Enforcement agencies.
We are extremely familiar with the US federal government systems and agencies. US Entry Waivers are a drop in the bucket for our vast level of knowledge since we were the ones that were adjudicating, handcuffing and arresting violators. In simple terms, we know the system inside out and were the ones training the trainers.
A lot of lawyers have no idea what they are doing with these applications since American law schools do not teach anything about immigration. The same applies to the cheap waiver companies. You perhaps are searching for a us immigration lawyer in Vancouver, Surrey, Toronto, Blaine or us immigration lawyer near me; but We are U.S. Immigration Law Intelligence Analysts which means that we are the ones that have the actual hands on experience in the field regarding previously enforcing these laws and arresting violators. Contact us so that we can get you cleared to enter the USA from Canada. We do not offer any legal advice nor legal services just FYI.
