The letter of reference is a very significant part of your US Entry Waiver application. This is because it should help convince the U.S. Customs & Border Protection that you will essentially behave yourself if you visit the USA. The book says that you need a minimum of two letters of ref. However, we have discovered that we ask for differing amounts of letters based on each specific case. The competition does not understand this and will just tell you to write two letters only. We approach each criminal offence a different way and include certain offence related rehabilitation information per case. This is in addition to the letters of reference. The letters should clearly show:
Who you are
How they know you
How long they have known you
What makes you a great person
