Last year I received my file destruction and I'd like to know if I still need a waiver? I haven't been to the U.S. since the incident.
Homeland Security knows that asking "have you ever been arrested?" casts a wider net than "do you have a criminal record" and is also effective for catching people hiding their records with a Pardon.
Your answer is always "no".
If you have NEVER been denied entry into the United States, and have removed or sealed your record, ALWAYS say "no".
The biggest controversy in this industry are people doing unnecessary waivers.
A Pardon is 100% effective UNLESS you:
-admit to having a pardon
-Have been caught before your pardon
When you get a Pardon, even our own RCMP cannot see you have a record.
Well, Leafs...it still may or may not still show up in the databases...We have seen pardoned convictions still showing up in the database. Plus CBP has other databases that they can use where they may or may not see a conviction. The big thing is what the conviction is for. An example is that if you had a simple DUI...then you would not even have to apply for a waiver and you could save your money. Ken 604 332-9213 usentrywaiverlaw.com
Leafs, question for you is have you ever required/had a waiver before your file was destroyed.
If you are in their system then you are for life.
I had my file destroyed a year ago and still need a waiver every time I cross. Even spoke to the American Consulate and it didn't make a difference.
