  • Steps to getting your I-194 waiver

    After having successfully obtained a waiver some 5 months ago, I thought it might be useful to recap the steps needed to apply for the I-194 (advance permission to enter the United States) after being denied entry at the US border.
    1. <LI>Find your local fingerprint office (call to see if you need an appointment). Bring your passport and $25 CDN.
      <LI>Mail the C-216C form to the RCMP. Include a check for processing ($25 CDN).
      <LI>Wait up to 2 months for a reply... When you receive your completed C-216C from the RCMP ensure it includes the fingerprint chart with a date stamp and the documentation related to your conviction and disposition.
      <LI>Complete a personal statement regarding your intended activities in the US.
      <LI>If you are inadmissible because of a criminal conviction you must also complete a statement explaining the circumstances of each arrest, conviction and the sentence or fine imposed. Additionally you should submit any evidence or explanation of your reform or rehabilitation such as counseling, current employment, marital status, community service, etc. Don't forget to sign and date your statements!
      <LI>Complete the I-192 application form.
      <LI>Fill out form G-325A.
      <LI>Call the US Border Protection office to see if you need an appointment (here are some http://uswaiver.blogspot.com/2006/01/its-been-over-2-mo...now-since-i-was.html]phone numbers for various locations).
      <LI>Show up at the border protection office for your interview (bring $265 CDN). Don't forget to bring all of your documents!
      <LI>Wait many months or more for your reply (mine took 9 months but some people have been waiting for 18 months or more). Good luck!
