Any update on I 192 process

Jordanposted 3 months ago

I applied for my I 192 renewal four months ago using e safe - online. Any idea what will happen to my application since I couldn't for fingerprinting within 45 days after filing my application online.

@roy I have had "essential" truck drivers given an informal extension on their waivers but nothing official. For those who only got 1 year waivers unfortunately, unless they do something when they open the border, you may be out of luck.

You never know, when they start taking waivers again they may do something for waivers that are just expiring. Don't forget, the official government line is that you CAN travel right now, just by air, not ground.

One of my clients was allowed to travel JUST because he has a girlfriend in the United States. They aren't being that strict, which is probably why Covid is still spreading.

e-SAFe is faster. Although I still do the majority of my waivers the regular way, there is no doubt e-SAFE is better.

-No paper going back and forth in itself makes the process faster
-Homeland Security doesn't have to "data enter" the information
-The waiver is sent by email, not regular mail.

At its fastest, 30-60 days is the best case scenario for paper. I have seen e-safe in 2 weeks.

Here is the perfect example of where Homeland Security is going with this.

At Pearson Airport they started taking all the eSAFE people first and lecturing the other people. At certain borders, they would "pretend" that they were too busy and send people away with packets, telling them they "only do electronic" filing.

There is no DOUBT e-safe is better, but I understand why it is hard to embrace change.

@ Jordan we will research this issue next week and post our results here for you. This is another reason why we do not partake in esafe since the tried and true paper method has worked for us. Some lawyers push this saying your approval will be faster but this is no guarantee. An example is that we have a client that used esafe through a lawyer in Nov 2019 and his waiver case is stil pending.

@Jordan, I really can't help you, I am not familiar with any of the e-safe process, as it is not here in Saskatchewan, and to be honest, I am surprised that you were even able to apply. My advise is to phone the nearest Custom Office and ask them.

DId you pay as well? What does the application (online) say now?

Why did you start an application online in (July? August?) if the border wasn't open? Did someone advise you to do this?
