Under the Immigration & Nationality Act, there are certain circumstances that make an individual inadmissible or ineligible for certain forms of relief. In a few cases, one can apply for a waiver of inadmissibility.
Some common waivers are:
- The I-601A Provisional Waiver which allows an applicant to apply stateside to waiver one unlawful entry or one instance of unlawful presence
- The regular I-601 can be used stateside or during consular processing to waive issues of health related exclusions, misrepresentations or fraud, among many others
- The I-212 is used to waive inadmissibility due to a former deportation
