#1443 Landed immigrants in Canada do not pay $930.

#1447 Saratoo. You will have to show rehabilitation in any waiver case in general. The rehabilitation must be tailored to the individual. There is no magic bullet in terms of rehabilitation. We have clients now that were accused of or admitted to escorting to CBP. The rehabilitation must be tailored to the individual. Just volunteering at a charity will not show rehabilitation since they want a total reformation of character.

We also have to factor in your internet presence on the web and account for that as well. A lot of material will stay on the web and CBP will find it. SO it is a matter of just resolving each complex case and tailoring the rehab and other relevant info to you to show that you as a person has been rehabilitated.

We would also have to take into account your denial letter and overcome the issues that they have pointed out. An example is that we have counselors and now a drug rehab clinic under our umbrella. I have posted this on my Facebook page and my friends are all well aware of it. We have a guy that has 33 convictions for various offences and they are drug-related. We have developed a rehab program and are running him through in addition to the counselors and the clinic. After he is done, we will get the evaluations to add include them(in addition) together with things to show that he is rehabilitated.

So it is not just volunteering since anyone can do them. It is a matter of showing reformation of character. Also, note that CBP can deny entry to people for other reasons besides criminality. We cover all the possible areas that can come up.

So you will surely have to show rehabilitation that is case specific. Another example is that obviously rehabilitation for a person that has a child molestation offence and someone that has a conviction for drug trafficking would be different and must be tailored to the individual...which is what we do.

@Kscott you are correct! Instead of the old language that was on Homeland Security's site, which ONLY exempted "Canadian Citizens who hand in their waiver at a CBP Port of Entry in Person" it now says:

The fee for Form I-192 will remain $585 when filed with and processed by CBP.

So to correct/update my statement, Landed Immigrants and Canadian Citizens are both receiving the exemption, and pay $585, not $930 which is the Fee as of December 23 2016.

As both Michelle and I have stated, we only do Waivers for Canadian Citizens, because handing in a Waiver at the local Consulate here in Toronto is too frustrating.

My advice to @SaraToo still stands. Rehabilitation can be shown in a number of ways, but rehabilitation form "prostitution" or "having a sugar daddy" needs to have some "realization" that what you were doing was "wrong". So again, volunteering is one option. Waiting a full 5 years also helps. Going to a rehabilitation clinic sounds costly, impractical for this type of offence, and this particular person does not live in BC. For drug/alcohol addiction? Absolutely if less that 5 years ago. Not needed if enough time has lapsed, and again unless you are local, impractical.

For a company with 2 people, you seem to have a lot of addresses. You are in England right now, correct? Whats the address of your Winnipeg office? Burnaby and Surrey? Why 2 offices so close together? Why are the addresses not listed on your website?

Well, we have a policy that we give a 100% refund if a waiver case gets denied. This will apply for first-time clients only. We turn around cases where they have already been denied. Note that if you get another denial, then it will make the case harder and will even be more work to get cleared.

There are a lot of bad waiver providers out there.

#1452 Our addresses are with all due respect...none of your business...If you are in the lower mainland, then let me know and you can come by. I do not need to be at each location since I can only be at 1 place at a time. I have enough people on hand to staff most of our locations. I actually recently put up a job posting on Facebook for our new Abbotsford location and got 3 hits. Need to get the location first as that will be done before Dec 2018. I can technically open an office in all 28 E.U. nations if I want and it is not hard to do.

We do not take walk-in clients for a number of reasons. Makes no sense for someone to come by and we cannot help them. Everyone that comes by is fully screened for a number of things before they even step through that door. Then they are on security cameras and other security tools that we have at our disposal. Walk-in clients may get charged a consultation fee and some do not want to pay $200 to talk. Hence, they are screened on the phone and can decide if they want to come in or not in terms of our fees. No one is forced to come in.

You obviously do not know the lower mainland. Surrey people do not like driving to Burnaby and Vancouver people do not like driving to Surrey. Hence the need for locations that best serve the people. If someone comes to the office they are met by staff members.

GuessI I still do not understand why my actual geographical location is relevant since there is always someone there to address the case and I direct everything globally.

Clear sign of someone with mailing addresses only. Which makes sense since you have not been in Canada for months.

Why do you think a number of addresses or pretending your organization makes you somehow more reputable? Why put so much effort into faking it?

Thank you John for all the advice I will come at your office as soon as I can since you are about a hour drive from me
