africanjedi85.......I get the same situation. What I find : If you overstay more then 1 year, CBP will give you 5 years ban.You can't come back to US right away. One person told me , he get his waiver one year before 5 years time frame ends.But , even you stay one day longer- the shortest ban from CBP, still 5 years. I have the same answer all the time. Did apply 4 month before you.
Something more . After 5 years CBP ban finished. Emigration USA law said:if you overstay 1 year, - you get 10 year ban. But, its look like you get possibility after 5 years receive a regular waiver. But if you simply drive in, they can ask you , "if you stay outside of US 10 years already?" .
@africanjedi85 .................. Ask RS ... he has his own thread on helping folks out and he got his waiver in less than 5 months on this forum. Maybe you did something wrong on your application and the person who is looking at your application is being biased and is taking there lazy time.
I am new to the site and I am happy to see there are real live people going through this process. As we all know sometimes the border doesn't like to provide information or insight. I just put in my 2nd application for my waiver on June 2016. I have applied before back in March of '12 and was emailing ARO on a consistent basis only to tell me everything was still in process. I found it weird that within in a year and 6 months I had no answer. I finally decided to go to the Lewiston Border where they told me I was not allowed to be at their border and if I tried again I could be arrested even though at the port I had already told them I was inadmissable but that I needed to speak with someone regarding my waiver and I had my passport to show them. When I spoke with CBP officer he looked me up and seen that my application was denied in Sept. 12. I did not change any information and yet I received nothing from ARO or had anything mailed to me. It is now June 2016 and so I'm hoping processing times are not long, I will keep everyone updated.
@Bo yeah I was effin surprised 114 days total... but now I am worry free for the next 5 years... just time to hit up Vegas with the guys -n- dolls for summer, when I couldn't before.
Just keeping checking that mail box, it will eventually come otherwise they would have sent you a letter by now stating they need more info pertaining to your waiver.
On a different note, Aldergrove border crossing has nicer guards then the 176 truck border... I always enter that way....but then again if we need waivers we are common criminals in the US CBP minds.
