U.S.A. Travel Waivers are also known as Advanced Permission to Enter as Nonimmigrant. There are many reasons a person may be ineligible to enter the U.S.A. In general, you may be denied entry if you have a communicable disease, criminal record(s), for possession of or trafficking, involvement with terrorism or terrorist organizations (no Waivers can be approved for this category), if you have trafficked in person, been involved in money laundering, might become a public charge because of limited financial resources, have been previously deported or have overstayed a previous period of admission to the U.S.A.

Depending on the reason for your inadmissibility into the U.S.A., and if you are a class of nonimmigrant where a visa is not required e.g. Canadian Citizen, or you are a nonimmigrant with appropriate documents who subsequently becomes admissible, you may be eligible to apply in advance of your travel directly to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for a temporary waiver or Landed Immigrant of inadmissibility.

A Waiver is a legal document that permits you to enter the U.S.A. without a problem despite the fact that you have a criminal record. If you have a past criminal record and you’re caught traveling to the U.S.A. without a Waiver, it is likely that you will be denied entry to the U.S.A. You also risk the possibility of being arrested and charged for illegal entry into the U.S.A. – punishable by being deported and even having your vehicle and/or property confiscated.

U.S.A. Customs and Immigration Officers now have computer access to the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database. With new laws being passed, making passports mandatory for Canadian citizens to enter the U.S.A., information can now be accessed by these officers, such as whether or not you have a prior criminal record, with the swipe of the bar code on your passport.

In the past, you may have been able to travel in and out of the U.S.A. but now with your history on file you could be denied entry based on your criminal record. Many of these cases even relate to criminal records that occurred decades ago – but in the eyes of the law, you’re still inadmissible to the U.S.A.

The U.S.A. government takes these cases very seriously. That is why it is important to apply for a Waiver in advance to travel. It will also ensure that you don’t risk the humiliation of being detained and denied entry to the border in front of your family, friends and/or colleagues. Not to mention the fact that it could save you thousands of dollars in non-refundable travel and accommodation fees.

The penalties for being found attempting to cross the border or flying with a criminal record or found already in the U.S.A. with a criminal record are numerous. It may vary and depending on the officer, from something as mild as a reprimand and being turned away from the border or as serious as being arrested, a conviction or incarceration.

As per the U.S.A. Government, attempting to gain entry without declaring your criminal record could result in a permanent ineligibility and/or detention at a U.S.A. Department of Homeland Security enforcement facility while a Customs and Border Patrol Officer determines your admissibility.

There are misunderstandings around travelling in the U.S.A. but not knowing the laws is no excuse.

  1. A criminal record will not disappear when you receive a new passport. A criminal record remains with a person’s identity whenever a background check is done. Therefore, a criminal record is accessible through your passport. A passport is considered a travel document or I.D., and is not indicative of the absence of a criminal record.
  2. Having a criminal record with charges from several years ago does not preclude the necessity of a Travel Waiver. Officer may still deny your entry.
  3. Being granted a Record Suspension prior to travelling does not guarantee admittance to the U.S.A. The reality is that Record Suspensions are not recognized by several countries, including the U.S.A. Even with a Canadian Pardon/Record Suspension, a Travel Waiver is a requirement.

Because of the common perception that it is easy to cross the border without concern, many individuals do not know if they can legally enter the U.S.A. until they are stopped and turned away at the border.

Benefits of a Travel Waiver:

The key benefits for U.S.A. Travel Waivers are: Vacation/Visit, Work, Business and Peace of Mind.


Relax both your mind and body by being able to take a holiday without restrictions. You do not want to be turned away from the U.S.A. Border or Airport, when you have already paid for the ticket and/or in front of your family and friends.


Avoid the embarrassment of not being able to cross the Border for work.


Be able to make trips across the Border for business purposes.
