U.S. Waiver Timeline

waiver timeline

Acquiring a U.S. Waiver is a two-stage process. The first stage is the completion of your application, a detailed step-by-step process which Pardon Applications of Canada completes on your behalf.  The second stage is the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s time to approve your application and grant your Waiver.

PAC is an industry leader in expediting U.S. Waiver applications.  Timelines below are estimated based on ideal conditions with Priority status.  External factors which could lengthen the timeline include court and police response times, delay in completing fingerprints, efficiency in applicant’s communication, and others.
