Third Nonimmigrant Waiver of Inadmissibility Granted

Published: May 15, 2014

Our client is a dual Canadian and Mexican citizen who resides with his family in Mexico.  He is self-employed as a farmer.  Twenty years ago, he was convicted in the United States of a drug trafficking offense which bars him from entering the United States for life.  Following his conviction and imprisonment, he was deported from the United States.  Our client needs to enter the United States to purchase farming equipment and supplies to operate his farm.  His conviction prevented him from entering the US to do so.


We were retained five years ago to solve his problem, and we obtained his first nonimmigrant waiver of inadmissibility.  He retained us again prior the expiration of his first nonimmigrant waiver, at which time we prepared and filed a renewal waiver that was granted by the Admissibility Review Office (ARO) in Washington, DC for a period of three years. 


Prior to the expiration of his second nonimmigrant waiver, our office prepared a renewal application.  Each waiver application prepared by our office is supplemented with appropriate documentary evidence and a legal brief.  The ARO approved the renewal waiver for a period of three years.  He can now apply for admission to the United States without further delay.  He is able to enter the US to purchase whatever is necessary for his business and visit his family and friends in the US.  Our client is pleased with the result.
