Visa Waivers

Immigration waivers are petitions that excuse the grounds of inadmissibility that are keeping an individual from entering into the U.S. or obtaining permanent resident status in the United States. Waivers are available for nonimmigrant and immigrant visas alike, as well as for individuals who are applying for adjustment of status in the United States.For immigrants and applicants seeking adjustment of status there is the possibility of obtaining extreme hardship waivers to pardon multiple inadmissibility issues. The extreme hardship waiver pardons: crime-related grounds of inadmissibility; the five and ten year bars for unlawful presence in the country; fraud; misrepresentation; and medical conditions. For J-1 and J-2 visa holders the waiver can also pardon the two-year home residency requirement.

Waivers for nonimmigrants waive almost all grounds of inadmissibility with the exception of those involving serious security and foreign policy considerations. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office judges all nonimmigrant and immigrant waivers, with the exception of certain J waivers that are granted by the U.S. Department of State.
