Do you have a criminal record, but want to travel to the U.S.? Read This!

If you have a record and haven’t yet been flagged by U.S. Authorities – Don’t go to the U.S. until you have a Record Suspension (Pardon).

It is illegal to attempt to enter the U.S. with a criminal record, unless you have a U.S. Entry Waiver.

Haven’t Been Caught Yet?
Then you’ve been lucky.It’s now become common practice for U.S. immigration officers to ask for identification for the purpose of conducting an RCMP computer criminal record search.

Once your record has been discovered, it will be downloaded into the U.S. computer system, resulting in an INS and an FBI file. You will then be denied entry, and once you’re denied you will be required to apply for a U.S. Entry Waiver.

But, if you have never been stopped at the border, then it means that they don’t know about your criminal record. This is the time to act – Go get a Record Suspension (Pardon)! After your record is pardoned or destroyed, your FPS# will no longer appear on searches conducted at the border. Therefore, they will not have access to your past record, and there will be no need to get a U.S. Waiver.
