I’m a Canadian Citizen and I’ve Been Denied Entry to the USA Because I Have a Criminal Conviction. What Should I Do Now?
Canadian citizens who have been denied entry to the United States due to a past criminal conviction can apply for an I-192 Waiver of Inadmissibility. This waiver must be applied for, and in almost all cases received, prior to attempting another entry into the United States. The first thing you should do after being denied entry to the US is check your records for any documentation you may have regarding your past convictions, and to call a US Immigration Lawyer.
What Can A Lawyer do to Help Me?
One of PricewaterhouseCoopers Immigration Law LLP’s US Immigration lawyers will review your charges and convictions thoroughly to determine whether or not you require a waiver. If it is determined that a waiver is necessary, we will assist you in gathering the necessary documents and preparing a cogent application package to present to the US authorities. We will work with you to ensure that you meet the legal requirements necessary for a waiver to be granted and we will assist you in putting together the strongest application possible. Once the application has been submitted, we will follow-up on your application at regular intervals and continue to monitor its progress.
What Happens Next?
A waiver of inadmissibility can be granted for anywhere from 1-5 years. Initial waivers are generally only valid for one year, and must be renewed if you intend to enter the US.
