Waivers of Inadmissibility
I-601 Waiver of Inadmissibility applies to inadmissible individuals seeking entry to the U.S. on an immigrant visa or those seeking an Adjustment of Status who are already here. Examples of available waivers include those for unlawful presence, immigration fraud, and alien smuggling.
Inadmissibility is generally based on the following factors:
- Health issues, such as having a communicable disease or other physical or mental disorder
- Criminal convictions for specific crimes, such as those of moral turpitude, drug violations, prostitution, and more
- Security issues, such as having been involved in terrorist activity or being a member of a totalitarian party
- Immigration law violations, such as illegal entry, unlawful presence, immigration fraud, and alien smuggling
- Miscellaneous grounds per INA law
Specific requirements must be fulfilled in each situation depending on why the individual was declared inadmissible in the first place. In many cases, the applicant must prove that his or her spouse or family would suffer undue hardship should he or she be denied a waiver.
