Waivers

If you have been refused entry, or have been found inadmissible to the United States, you may be able to obtain a waiver. Persons may be inadmissible – that is, may not be admitted – to the United States under the U. S. immigration laws for a variety of reasons.  Some of the reasons a person may be inadmissible include:

  • Criminal conviction(s)
  • Prior immigration violations (overstay, removal, etc.)
  • Health-related grounds
  • Fraud or willful misrepresentation

However, the United States recognizes that even though a person may be inadmissible under one or more of the immigration laws, we may still want to allow that person to be admitted to the United States.  In such cases, the person who is inadmissible to the United States may apply for what’s called a waiver of inadmissibility.

For example, the person may have been rehabilitated after a criminal conviction. In such cases, the person who is inadmissible to the United States may apply for what’s called a non-immigrant waiver of inadmissibility.
