My Experience at Toronto Pearson on Apr 8 2017

append delete srt1

This is my first time doing waiver and I did all by myself with the help of this forum and online search. So i want to give my experience back to the forum as my "thank you"

I reached the office at 5 AM. there were 3 people before me. they got the sign up sheet around 5:30 AM. started taking the applications at 8:05.
there are 2 people inside taking applications, asking questions, taking finger prints etc. It took approx 20- 40 mins for each application.

I went inside around 9 am, just because 2 people in front of me had insufficient documents, so they turned back with in 10 mins.
I went inside officers checked my application, took finger prints. but there was an issue with their computer. so they made me and rest of the people wait outside for 1 hour till they fix the issue with their system. I was called again at 10:05, i went inside. They verified all the papers. I arranged them very nicely as per the requirement. so it took me 20 mins inside. I was out by 10:25.

MUST have forms

Original proof of citizenship and a copy
2 - I 192 applications
4 - G325 A forms (someone had to go back just because they got 3 forms)
RCMP original
personal Statement regarding inadmissibility and proposed activities in US
Personal statement regarding criminal convictions

above are must have forms and there is a list of recommended forms. let me know if anyone wants that too.

Hello srt1

Thanks for the info, I'm planning on going this Saturday to Pearson. A few questions:

1. What terminal did you go to?
2. Do they accept credit card for the payment?
3. What are the recommended forms and did you bring them with you?

Hi, did the agents really ask for the Letters of Reference or its voluntary on the part of the applicants. Because in the CBP check list it was not indicated/states that you need those letters. Thanks

yes you absolutely need 2 letter of reference.
