The United States of America is a hospitable country with a sizable immigrant population. Despite its openness to immigrants from all over the world, the US does impose travel restrictions based on specific criminal offenses.

Here are some of the typical categories of immigration waivers to help you determine which one best fits your situation:
Waiver of Inadmissibility for nonimmigrants
For foreign nonimmigrant candidates seeking admission to the USA, this particular form of waiver is available. This waiver addresses the exclusion of some security actions, such as terrorism, participation in genocide, practicing Nazi prosecution, espionage, and other foreign security policies, notwithstanding its broad scope.
Waiver for fraud and misrepresentation
You will either be denied entry to the US or deported if you are charged with fraud and deception in connection with acquiring a visa or other papers for entrance. You must demonstrate that rejecting this waiver will put your relatives abroad through significant hardship in order to secure a waiver of fraud and misrepresentation. To do this, you must have a close relationship with a US citizen.
Waiver of inadmissibility for health-related grounds
Regarding the health-related grounds for inadmissibility, this waiver is relevant. It is about those physical and mental conditions that have an impact on LA’s general welfare. In order to use a health waiver, you must demonstrate your qualifications.
Waiver to avoid deportation after a criminal conviction
The 212(c) waiver to escape deportation following a felony conviction covers a variety of criminal offenses that result in inadmissibility and deportability. It is accessible to legal residents who left the country voluntarily and without a deportation order, as well as those who are coming to a legal renunciation domicile for seven years in a row without having been convicted of any offenses for which they received a five-year jail sentence.
Waiver of inadmissibility for criminal acts
It is beneficial for the many types of crimes that result in inadmissibility and have different standards depending on the inadmissibility grounds.
Unlawful presence waiver
Before leaving the country for an immigration visa interview at a foreign U.S. embassy, applicants for immigrant visas who have relatives who hold green cards or who are citizens may seek for a “provisional” waiver of the unlawful presence grounds of inadmissibility.
Humanitarian waiver or relief from removal
This waiver addresses the fundamental problems of inadmissibility that arise from misrepresentation or fraud, whether intentional or unintentional. You need a relative who is an American citizen in order to be granted this waiver.

My interview last week Thursday went flawlessly.
The interviewing officer was from Romania, where I’ve been multiple times, so we had a great connection.
They scheduled our Oath Ceremony the same day, and I became a US citizen on Feb 3, 2022.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me on my journey to become a US citizen.
I’m incredibly fortunate to have an attorney that believes in me and my abilities and gave me the confidence to pursue the American Dream.
I hope to make you even more proud of my future careers and life experiences in the US.
