Waivers of Inadmissability

At their discretion, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services may refuse entry to immigrants or non-immigrants. A reason is given for the grounds of the inadmissibility. Immigrants seeking permanent residency and non-immigrants wanting to visit the United States temporarily are eligible to apply for a waiver of inadmissibility. The success of the case will usually depends on the specific grounds declared by the USCIS. Success may lie in showing that you have ties to the United States, and granting you the waiver and allowing you to enter will benefit the United States.
