U.S Entry Waivers
Similarly, A U.S. Entry Waiver (Advanced Permission for Admissibility) is a document that allows people who have been convicted of a criminal offence to legally enter the United States.
If you have been denied entry into the United States, or if you have a criminal past, you will not be able to enter the United States unless you can present a valid U.S. Entry Waiver.
If travelling to the United States before your Canadian criminal record is pardoned or destroyed, you must apply for a US Entry Waiver to legally enter – essentially admitting to your offence and providing the details about your criminal record to the US federal government.
The Customs and Border protection (CBP) is the official and only federal agency responsible for ordering, denying and revoking Temporary U.S Waiver. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) grants a Waiver depending on the offense that makes you inadmissible into the U.S. and when it occurred - it may be issued on a more restrictive basis - for as little as a single entry. By regulation a waiver may be valid for a maximum of five years.
