What is a waiver of inadmissibility?

If you want to know in more detail what a waiver of inadmissibility is, we invite you to read the full article because this topic needs to be explained in several points. 

Firstto enter the United States, you must be considered admissible. That means that the person needs to know the criteria indicated by the laws of the country. 

What can be grounds for inadmissibility? 

As previously mentioned, under United States law there may be certain acts that are considered inadmissible in the country, either temporarily or permanently. 

Some of the common motives are having a criminal record, immigration crimes (such as visa fraud, deportation, and smuggling of foreigners), health, public charges, and restrictions imposed on a visa. 

So, how can you get a waiver? 

A pardon can be given for various cases of inadmissibility, such as: 

  • Health-related reasons.
  • Drug-related crimes.
  • Illegal presence in the United States.
  • Fraud or forgery.
  • Prostitution and commercialized vice.

To apply for a waiver of inadmissibility, the person must contact the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and present evidence showing that a “qualifying relative” of the “inadmissible citizen” would suffer extreme hardship if the person cannot live in the United States. 

Even if the evidence is presented, USCIS is not required to accept the application, so you should go to an immigration attorney who can better support your case.
