I have been denied entry to the US

A criminal record is a major contributing factor to the many people, including Canadian citizens, who are denied entry to the United States each and every year. No matter how many decades old your criminal record is, or how seemingly minor your conviction is, any criminal record has a chance of keeping you out of the United States. Applying for US waivers of inadmissibility

People who are denied entry to the United States must turn around immediately, or be on the next flight home if they’ve arrived in the United States via an airport. This can be very embarrassing and distressing, not to mention costly and time-consuming. But is there something you can do if you suspect you are going to be denied entry to the United States or you have been already?

United States waivers of inadmissibility when you are denied entry to the United States

People who are inadmissible to the United States can apply for waivers of inadmissibility if they have to enter the United States. The government will give your case careful consideration, including why you want to enter the country and if you pose any risk of harm to society. However, these waiver applications can take several months to process and you will want to determine if you need one well in advance of your expected travel or entry to the United States.

Sometimes it’s not clear if you are criminally inadmissible to the United States until you actually try to enter the country. However, you can avoid wasting time and money by asking a licensed immigration lawyer about your personal situation. If you are inadmissible to the United States, they can help you explore your options.
