If you are planning to travel to the United States, either with an immigrant visa, to adjust your status, or even with certain types of non-immigrant visas, but at the time of your interview at the U.S. consulate for some reason you are found inadmissible, you can apply for a waiver of inadmissibility, with the help of an immigration attorney.

Through this process, you will apply to the U.S. Immigration Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) for the waiver of inadmissibility applied to your case, so you can have the chance to enter the U.S. for the intended purpose.

Please note that, to be eligible to file for this type of waiver, there are certain requirements established by the USCIS, which will allow you to proceed with your application and receive the opportunity to obtain the waiver of inadmissibility.

Remember, if you need legal assistance to make sure you complete the proper process, you can schedule an appointment with our immigration attorney, who will provide you with all the advice you need, so that you can complete your application without any inconvenience.

What is a waiver of grounds of inadmissibility?

When applying for any of the immigration benefits provided by the USCIS to foreign nationals who have the desire to travel to the country, either with the intention of settling as immigrants or staying for a limited time, the immigration law establishes some grounds of inadmissibility that could prevent the applicant from obtaining a permit or visa to enter the United States. 

When this occurs, the beneficiary has the right to apply for a waiver of grounds of inadmissibility, which basically will allow them to have the opportunity to receive an exception for the reason for which they have been qualified as inadmissible, to enter the country without complications.

For this, the beneficiary must file Form I-601, which must be completely filled out and signed, in order to obtain the expected result. At this point, it is important that you can count on the support of our immigration attorney, who will allow you to make sure that you enter the appropriate information, according to the provisions of the U.S. immigration law.
