Second Five-Year Nonimmigrant Waiver GrantedPublished: Mar 16, 2010 7:00 am
Our client is a Canadian citizen. He owns his own business, which has many U. S. customers, which requires him to be admitted to the United States from time to time.
Unfortunately, he has two criminal convictions in Canada, one involving theft and the other for fraud. Well over 20 years has elapsed since the convictions, and our client has rehabilitated himself and is a contributing member of his community.
Previously, we obtained a five-year Nonimmigrant Waiver of Inadmissibility from U. S. Cus-toms and Border Protection enabling him to be admitted to the United States if otherwise admissible. That waiver is now expired.
Since we obtained the waiver for our client, the policy of U. S. Customs and Border Protection has become far more restrictive. We prepared a new application package for our client, includ-ing our legal brief and numerous supporting documents. The new waiver was approved in less than four months after submission. It is valid for a second period of five years and can be utilized for multiple entries into the United States.
