Frequently asked questions (FAQs):

A waiver of inadmissibility is a legal provision within the U.S. immigration system that allows certain individuals, who would otherwise be barred from entering or residing in the U.S. due to various reasons, to seek forgiveness and permission to obtain a visa, green card, or other immigration benefits. Reasons for inadmissibility can range from past criminal convictions to health concerns or previous immigration violations. By obtaining this waiver, individuals can overcome these barriers, demonstrating that they are deserving of an exception, often due to humanitarian reasons or significant ties to the U.S. It’s essential to note that not everyone is eligible for such a waiver, and the process requires a thorough understanding of immigration laws and regulations.

Qualifying for a waiver of inadmissibility depends on the specific ground of inadmissibility and the individual’s circumstances. Generally, an applicant must demonstrate that:

  • They have a qualifying U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) relative who would face extreme hardship if the applicant were not admitted or allowed to remain in the U.S.
  • The need for the applicant’s admission to the U.S. outweighs the risk to society.
  • The applicant deserves a favorable exercise of discretion, considering their overall character and actions.

Specific grounds for inadmissibility, such as certain criminal convictions, health-related reasons, or immigration fraud, have their own set of criteria for waiver eligibility.

Form I-601, titled “Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility,” is an official document used by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Individuals who have been deemed inadmissible to the U.S. for specific reasons—such as certain health conditions, criminal activities, or prior immigration violations—use this form to request a waiver for those grounds of inadmissibility. By successfully obtaining this waiver, an individual can pursue immigration benefits like a visa, adjustment of status, or admission into the U.S., which might otherwise be unattainable due to their inadmissibility status.

Form I-601A, known as the “Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver,” is designed for specific immigrant visa applicants who are relatives of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. This application allows them to seek a provisional waiver for the unlawful presence grounds of inadmissibility, as stipulated under Immigration and Nationality Act section 212 (a)(9)(B). The pivotal advantage of using I-601A is that applicants can request this waiver before leaving the United States to attend an immigrant visa interview at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. By obtaining this provisional waiver, it aids in reducing the time these applicants might otherwise spend abroad, separated from their families. It’s extremely crucial to consult with immigration attorney Farah Al-khersan, to assess your individual circumstances and navigate the complexities of the waiver process effectively.
