What makes a person ineligible, requiring a waiver of inadmissibility?

Many grounds for inadmissibility exist in U.S. immigration law. Most involve something a person has done that takes them afoul of the laws established by the U.S. Congress, but some are for things beyond a person’s control, such as certain health issues. Section 212(a) of INA lists the grounds that make a person ineligible to receive a visa or admission to the U.S. (which includes adjustment of status), which are categorized in the areas of: Health-related grounds; Criminal and related grounds; Security and related grounds; Persons who would be a public charge; Illegal entrants and immigration violators; Persons lacking certain documentation; Persons who are ineligible for citizenship; Persons who have been deported from the U.S.; and “Miscellaneous.” Some of the more commonly encountered grounds of ineligibility include:

  • Drug abuser or addict, one who has engaged in non-medical use of a controlled substance
  • Crimes involving moral turpitude
  • Controlled substance violator
  • Multiple criminal convictions
  • Fraud and misrepresentation in a U.S. immigration matter
  • Student visa abuser
  • Aliens previously deported
  • Aliens unlawfully present in the U.S.
  • Visa Overstay
