I-601 Waivers Of Inadmissibility
Individuals who are seeking admission to the United States, and are deemed removable, are not allowed to enter the U.S. These individuals are considered inadmissible. This means that they trigger one or several inadmissibility categories outlined by the Immigration and Nationality Act. These categories include, but are not limited to:
- Health-related reasons (hepatitis C, Tuberculosis, etc.)
- Criminal reasons
- National security reasons
- Public dependency issues
- Lack of labor certification
- Fraud or misrepresentation
- Prior removals and/or unlawful presence
- Illegal entry into the U.S. and immigration violations, including misrepresentation
To waive your ground of inadmissibility, you must file form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility. The waiver and a subsequent visa may be granted if specific requirements are met.
For permission to reapply in deportation and removal cases, you must file form I-212, Application for Permission to Reapply for Admission into the United States After Deportation or Removal.
In certain consular processing cases, you must file form I-601A, Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, to waive the unlawful presence grounds of inadmissibility. In certain consular processing cases, an I-601 Application will be required instead. It is important to speak with an immigration attorney to know which waiver application applies to your unique situation.
