Travelling to U.S. with a criminal record can be worrisome or down right illegal, depending on the traveller’s criminal record history. Even obtaining a Pardon does not ensure successfully entry into the United States.
But individuals do have an option of obtaining a certified criminal record check to shed light on their current criminal record status – and it’s a good idea for almost anyone.
Pardon Applications of Canada, a leading Pardon & Waiver application processing firm, assists Canadians in entering the U.S. legally and without procedural delays. Among the services offered include filing for a U.S. Entry Waiver application along with a criminal record check.
Christopher Heringer, Senior Compliance Officer from Pardon Applications of Canada says travelling to the U.S. with a criminal record will create significant problems for the traveller while crossing the border. Often, these problems can compound into arrest, detainment and prosecution by Customs & Border control.
“In some cases, even travellers who have not specifically been convicted of a criminal offence could still have a problem crossing the border”, he says. “Just the act of being fingerprinted for a criminal charge, convicted or not, can alert the United States that you may have had a criminal issue”, he added.
Importance of Checking Criminal Record Regularly
Pardon Applications of Canada acquires certified criminal record reports for applicants using Royal Canadian Mounted Police accredited fingerprints. This is a good place to start when reviewing what potential travel problems could arise.
The criminal record report will include a certified nationwide criminal record review by Pardon Applications of Canada. This report helps determine the applicant’s eligibility for a U.S. Entry Waiver application – a necessary document to ensure travel freedom to the United States for many Canadians.
The report also has police information on the records associated with the applicant’s legal name, in case identity theft is an issue.
Pardon Applications of Canada is a private application processing firm which completes Canadian Pardon and U.S. Entry Waiver Applications for Canadians. Free qualifications for either application are available at www.pardonapplications.ca and by phone.
