US Travel Waiver Applications

The United States can refuse admission to any person convicted of a criminal offence.  Refused entry to the United States will disrupt your travel plans. Let us help you with your application.

Need a US Waiver?

Commissionaires Victoria, the Island and Yukon (CVIY) will simplify your US Travel Waiver application process.

Our base fee is $300.00 plus GST, including any additional disbursements – this covers up to 3 convictions. You are responsible for waiver application fees of $585.00 payable to the US Border Services.

Drop-ins are welcome, but appointments are highly recommended to avoid lengthy wait times. To book an appointment please call 250-727-7755 or email us.


Records of criminal convictions are kept on the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) computer database. CPIC is connected to the United States National Crime Information Centre (NCIC) which gives access to US Customs, Immigration and State Police departments. Once a person’s record has been checked by a US official, it is kept on the NCIC. If a pardon is obtained in Canada, it is not recognized by US authorities and does not guarantee US  entry – a travel waiver is typically still required.
