@John, September letter..Congrats to you and your client..that is great news....

Michelle replied 4 days ago   #57

SEPTEMBER LETTER!!!

2 OFFENCES FROM 1992
Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle Causing Death
Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle Causing Bodily Harm
(Pardon was granted and he was NEVER denied entry)

Notice 25 days or so seems to be the "normal" processing time.
This is my first September Letter since May 2021 when the Border started taking Waivers again. So as I suspected, they still will give them out when warranted.

These 2 are very different but granted recently.

The top one is his 4rth waiver, 3rd 5 year. Simple minor offence from the 80's Note the timeline is 25 days from fingerprints being done.

The bottom one is a long time client who had VERY serious charges and in 2010 was rejected for a waiver. He had a sentence of 12 years for making Meth n the United States. We waited, re-applied before the pandemic, 1 year waiver. He re-applied and now has his 5 year waiver. 27 days for him.

I am now telling clients about 25-30 days from fingerprints to completion.

Note the long weekend probably created the slightly longer timeline.

All of these were 5 year waivers.

5 year waiver, 17 days. Looks like 16-18 days is the common theme.

Interesting one here everyone. This is a truck driver, a client I have had for years. I did a few "essential truck driver" waivers. This client did his with the regular paper application in February 2021. No answer, no sign of the waiver. He went to Niagara Falls. Nothing. Buffalo had no answers, and his emails and my phone calls got no results. Finally, I just redid everything for free through eSAFE. New fingerprints, new everything. Here is the result. 5 year waiver...finally.

The other truck drivers that did the waiver at the time had no problem, just this one person.

Note again, 20 days. Again, the applications are taking longer and longer.

This is a long time client, 5 year waiver, he has a shoplifting of a $10 item in the 80's. I point this out to show 1.) even minor offences can get you stopped and 2) the length of time for waivers is increasing. He was fingerprinted on July 30 and got it today at 6am. That is 18 days, so please note the waivers are not getting faster, they are getting slower.

I always feel bad for clients like this, he is in his mid 80's and I always try and get him a September Letter, but they keep giving him a 5 year waiver.

Another one, August 11 granted, Again, the timeline a little longer. The July 4 weekend could have been a factor as well.

Note they are starting to take a little bit longer. This lady got a 5 year waiver (her first) but decision was 15 days. He son got a 1 year waiver a while ago but only 6 days. So maybe they are taking a bit longer now.

@K

Congratulations!!!! Obviously you did a great job.

I am posting this one because it is a little different than most of the waivers I see. He had a serious robbery/firearms offence from 2009. The result was a 1 year waiver. Recently I have been getting referrals from a lot of guys who I assume were in gangs in their youth, so this lets me know that even 10 years might only result in a one year waiver, but I need more data before I can be sure.

Still, even with a serious offence, a fast decision.
