Post real application stories here. Not "A guy told me" or "a few of my clients" but specific client experiences so others can see accurately what is happening.

There are rare exceptions, but whether you file a waiver, or a waiver AND an I-212 you simply get a waiver in return. That's why I tell clients to wait. Its an extra $930USD for the exact same waiver.

Sorry, that was meant for the response below

Client #2 entered the United States illegally in 2010.

Replies (recent first):

I'm not posting every one granted, just a couple here and there.

This is a client who has had 4 waivers. Simple drug charge.

Just an update for everyone.

eSAFE works incredibly well. The speed as you can see is unparalleled.

A typical waiver application works like this;

-Client comes to office, does fingerprints, gives basic information. Also gets a couple of documents to gather.
-2 weeks later, fingerprints are in. Client makes appointment to come back to office with documents.
-Clients documents are scanned. All documents scanned. Client goes home and file is entered and uploaded into eSAFE. They take all the documents WITH them
-Client is told file is completed and either a) enter their payment into eSAFE or b)I will do it for them.
-Client then makes appointment at Niagara Falls. Usually they can go next day
-Once Fingerprints are done at Niagara Falls, waiver is uploaded into their eSAFE profile. They get an email indicating "your file has been updated" from Homeland Security

As you can see above, some files take 2 weeks. Some are as little as 7 days. I will give the clients the option when the border opens but I will encourage eSAFE to be the #1 choice.

As you can see, there is transparency here, and proof from ACTUAL clients that this works. This is why I am posting some of the "read-outs" so people can see actual results. Please let me know if there is any other information that is helpful.

@ Bob, I can tell you that Canada Immigration is telling people to quarantine that have filed at the BC borders. Apparently, they have told our clients that they have to quarantine if they have stepped out of their vehicles to enter the CBP border station. I will assume that Niagara will say the same. The ARO director has already stated on 4/15/2021 that her agency will try to process waiver applications between 10 and 30 days upon receipt. However, this will likely change as more people file waivers.

Male, fairly serious US criminal record. Re-application.

@BobI94

I have seen both. 2 clients quarantined, 3 not. (all in the last week)

The latest guy told me he told them he didn't get out of his car, (which isn't actually true) but it seemed to work.

Officially, you have to quarantine. Unofficially, they aren't making everyone quarantine.

I client was a truck driver, so that seemed to make them not quarantine him.

This is at the Ontario/Niagara Falls/Rainbow Bridge Border only.

J Rogers replied 1 year ago   #4

if we are going to cross border just to submit finger prints at Niagara or peace bridge border do we have to quarantine either in US or Canada after coming back? This is for person who is applying waiver renewal (waiver for non essential travel ). We are just going from GTA to border just to give finger prints and come back immediately.
Appreciate if any one can provide confirmed information..

This was actually woman "A" not sure why it was removed.
She had a 1 year waiver, re-application, criminal record in Canada.

Result - 5 year waiver. 13 days from fingerprinting.

Downside was he son went with her and now has to quarantine

Male Client B

Truck Driver - Criminal Record - First application. Niagara Falls

So that is 8 days after fingerprinting. Result - 5 year waiver.

Pros - Super Fast
Cons - None, the officer said he should make him quarantine, he told them he was a truck driver, he said it was fine, no quarantine.
