What is WAIVER?

Also known as a waiver, an immigration pardon is a forgiveness granted by the United States government to foreigners who have violated the laws of that country.

It is usually granted to any immigrant alien qualified as inadmissible within the territory of the United States after having violated the law.

When applying for any type of US visa, the immigration authorities first verify whether the applicant in question has a criminal record within the United States that makes them inadmissible.

Three most common causes from which you can be exempted through immigration forgiveness

  • Unlawful presence in the United States

Those immigrants who are in the United States illegally, facing sentences of between 3 and 10 years, can avoid punishment by applying for the I-601A waiver. Generally, this immigration waiver can be requested through an interview at a United States consulate abroad, but always seek professional advice before beginning any process.

  • Immigration Fraud or Misrepresentation

Those who obtained an immigration benefit through fraud or false declaration may be eligible to request an immigration waiver. However, immigrants who falsely claim to be US citizens will not be able to apply for a crime waiver.

  • Criminal record

A criminal record could be grounds for inadmissibility into the United States. However, immigration pardon can be requested through section 212(H) if the crime in question falls within the category of forgivable felonies. If that is the case, immigrants may be eligible for the pardon if they meet the following requirements:

  • Having a spouse, fiancé, child, parent, or U.S. citizen or permanent resident who would suffer extreme hardship if the admission were denied.
  • More than 15 years must have passed since the commission of the crime and the application for admission to the United States.
