Hello,

On October 5th I completed my biometrics for both the I-192 Waiver and the I-212 Waiver:

As of right now, here are the statuses:

I-192 WAIVER:

10/5/2021, 07:30 PM MDT : Status changed to Submitted to ARO
10/2/2021, 03:03 PM MDT : Status changed to Paid
10/2/2021, 03:02 PM MDT : Status changed to Signed
4/14/2021, 07:13 AM MDT : Application Created

I-212 WAIVER:

10/5/2021, 07:30 PM MDT : Status changed to Submitted to ARO
10/2/2021, 07:03 PM MDT : Status changed to Paid
10/2/2021, 03:12 PM MDT : Status changed to Signed
4/14/2021, 11:52 AM MDT : Application Created

Please note, I have previously applied for the I-192 waiver through E-safe which took 10 days to get a 5 year approval. Last year I was "removed" from the US for an overstay which is why I now also need the I-212 waiver.

My question: It's been 20 days since "submitted to ARO". Will the process take longer because I require both waivers? Would they both be approved or denied at the same time, or are they completely separate from one another? Just curious if anyone has any experience with the submission of both waivers.

Thanks so much.

@Terri

They don't contact YOU. You contact THEM and make an appointment.

@J Rogers I live in BC and holding of on submitting my forms on esafe... it's all ready to go, but the borders are closed... in your opinion, when should I send it and will they contact me to get my biometrics done?

Terri replied 3 days ago   #64

This is a client who had his waiver denied. Serious record.

I am posting it to give everyone an idea of a timeline. They asked him for additional documents, he replied, then today we have a decision. Notice June 21st fingerprinted at the border, and it took almost 3 months to gather documents needed.

After that, 29 days for an answer.

My most recent waivers, notice the last 3 are faster than the 20 days I had been seeing. Trend? 21 days, 17, 14, and 13 days. So these 4 seem to indicate its getting faster again.

I am not sure if this is a fluke, or the beginning of a trend. I will see when more come in. Only 13 days from Fingerprints to 5 year waiver.

This is a re-application, and a client who got a 1 year before the pandemic. Now she has a 5 year.

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

Michelle replied 1 month 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.
