Waiver For Illegal Entry Explained

Last updated on May 31, 2023

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has attempted to address the numerous situations that might challenge an individual’s right to live and work in the United States. I-601, Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility (often simply referred to as a waiver of inadmissibility), can allow an individual to enter the United States even if he or she is considered inadmissible due to health-related grounds, criminal grounds or other activities.

I-601A, however, is an application for a provisional unlawful presence waiver (often simply referred to as a waiver for illegal entry). If you have questions about these waivers or the government’s grounds for inadmissibility, please schedule a free case evaluation with an attorney at our firm.

Our Experienced Immigration Attorneys Can Help With Overstayed Visa Issues

The USCIS stipulates two important factors that determine whether an individual can file Form I-601A:

  1. You are a relative (spouse or child) of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.
  2. You must have already paid the Department of State immigrant visa processing fee for the case associated with the approved immigrant visa petition.

The essence of the 601A waiver is to preserve your family unit for as long as possible. Many individuals are concerned about how to keep the family together in the U.S. throughout the process. There are numerous eligibility requirements for the waiver, and you should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to ensure the proper handling of your case.
