What Is a 212(H) Waiver?
A 212(h) waiver allows the U.S. Attorney General to waive certain offenses that would make one inadmissible. It is typically used as a waiver of inadmissibility after deportation. One may apply for a 212(h) waiver when applying for an adjustment of status, emigrating through consular processing, or entering at a border crossing.

What Crimes May be Waived in a 212(h) Waiver?

The following crimes can be waived under this process, allowing you to re-enter the country after being removed:
- Crimes considered to be of moral turpitude
- Multiple convictions that led to imprisonment of five or more years
- Crimes for which immunity from prosecution was involved
- A one-time offense of simple marijuana possession
Crimes for which you would be ineligible for a 212(h) waiver include murder, attempted murder, and crimes involving torture. Other qualifications for this waiver vary depending on whether you entered the U.S. as a lawful permanent resident or whether you adjusted your status to permanent residency after entering and living here.
