What I need to know about the E-safe waiver

From the middle of 2019, individuals from visa-exempt countries who are eligible may submit their applications online using Form I-192 and Form I-212 through e-SAFE. However, those who opt for electronic filing via e-SAFE must go to an e-SAFE designated port of entry to complete the biometrics appointment phase (which includes fingerprints and a photograph) of the waiver process. The updated catalog of e-SAFE ports of entry can be viewed at e-SAFE.cbp.dhs.gov. While most ports of entry already gather biometrics for manually filed forms, only the designated ports of entry are currently able to handle e-SAFE electronic filing with CBP biometrics processing for Form I-192 and I-212 applications. Other locations will be added over time and will be made public through the e-SAFE website and www.cbp.gov. For those who do not file their applications online, paper filing will continue to be accepted at ports of entry. Any changes or updates to this procedure will be announced on www.cbp.gov.

If you are planning a trip to Canada and have a criminal record, you must apply for an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) to travel there by air. If you do not have an eTA, you will be automatically denied entry into Canada. There is no way around it, however, entering the US with a criminal record for Canadian citizens is possible after approval for an Entry Waiver USA. A US pardon for Canadian citizens is now possible in just 40 days thanks to the DHS eSAFE portal!

If you are looking for the quickest way to receive a pardon to enter the United States from Canada, you may wish to utilize a Travel Waiver USA that is processed through the e-SAFE program. Such a Waiver may allow a person to cross the border either by car or by air. Though the process of completing a Waiver application to enter the United States can be difficult, so many Canadian citizens and permanent residents turn to experienced immigration professionals for help.
