Do I need a pardon before I apply for a US entry waiver?

You do not need to apply for, or receive a pardon, before applying for a US entry waiver. If you need to travel to the US and have a Canadian criminal record you can choose to apply only for a US entry waiver to ensure access to the US.

However, if you have a Canadian criminal record and have not been pardoned, and the requisite amount of time has elapsed, you may want to consider applying for a pardon at the same time. Commissionaires Ottawa offers a fast and affordable pardons service.
