Waiver Inadmissibility

Marlonposted 7 years ago

I read that even with a waiver you may not be admissible if your drug charge was for over 30 grams of marijuana.


Has anyone managed to acquire a waiver and successfully enter the USA with charges beyond drug charges beyond 30 grams of marijuana?

Hiring a lawyer has zero relevance on whether you get through. It's all about how the case is presented and all the various factors, plus remorse.

I am located in the province of Quebec. Do you have any contacts for people in Montreal?

I thought I waited enough time too but someone told me that ARO starts counting as of the day my probation finished which was in 2015 therefore it would only be 3 years instead of 6. Is that true?

also, I hired a lawyer and thought it would be a successful case but clearly I was wrong.

@nonameplease Now that it has been 6 years you have waited enough time if.....

You write the proper letter and fulfill all other requirements.

The biggest obstacle in Waivers for smart people doing their own is usually the personal letter. Smart people tend to defend their actions or at least justify them.

Get a professional to do your waiver, you have tried twice and now that you have waited longer, it should be successful.

Where do you live?

Michelle is in Saskatchewan, I am in Ontario. I am sure either one of us will get you a successful waiver.

hi guys!
I would appreciate any help/info/guidance.
I was convicted for fraud OVER 5000$ back in 2012. My probation finished in 2015. right when my probation finished I applied for a waiver and was refused because I didnt wait long enough to apply.
I waited a year and then re-applied..it took almost 2 years before I got a response which was a NO! ....
Its very important for me as I have a child who lives in the US. I really want to go.
on my second refusal they told me I haven't waited long enough.....HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT????? and they also mentioned that my letter didnt show much remorse.
I am not so good at expressing my feelings on paper. its very hard for me. I want to re-apply but im so skeptical. Should I wait? 3 years have passed since my probation was finished.
I did not have any jail time. I was on house arrest? no ankle bracelet I just had to curfew. My probation officer always writes the best letters which I include in my file that I send to the ARO but they don't care. My prob officer indicated that it was my first offence ever and I am not likely to re-offend.

3 clients so far crossed and said no difference whatsoever.

John Rogers replied 5 years ago   #7

with yesterdays pot legalization I would like to hear from people who know of others crossing the US border with Waivers.
Any problems, questions or delays.

Its not great. I assume they consider you to have "tried to enter with marijuana" despite the fact you had no intention.

Not only do you NEED a waiver, but you have to wait. We can't really argue you "have changed" in the short time since the "offence" occurred.

You probably will have to wait a minimum of 3 years to have a shot, and if you want to get it for sure, probably wait 5 years.

Hey, so I made the mistake of going to the border on a wrong turn with 6 grams of weed and a bong and no passport (I was headed to on a ski trip 9 months ago). No criminal record, just denied entry, what's my prognosis? will I be needing a waiver every 5 years?

SkiBUmm replied 5 years ago   #4

I too have done waivers for clients who have drug convictions, and agree with John Rogers, it is not that big of a problem.

Michelle Chaz replied 5 years ago   #3

I have done many waivers for clients who had large drug offences. As long as its over 5 years since the conviction. No problem. Drugs aren't as big a problem as people let on.

I would like to know this as well
