When a person is declared inadmissible to the United States, this means they are prohibited from adjusting their status, from obtaining an immigrant visa, and from coming into the U.S. for any reason. Fortunately, I-601 and I-601A Waivers are available to allow non-citizens to live and work in the U.S. or obtain green cards despite such grounds. Additionally, I-212 Waivers are available for those who have already been deported for a specific time period and want to return to the U.S. before that time is up.

What Are the Grounds for Inadmissibility?

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) sets forth specific grounds for which a person may be inadmissible to the United States, meaning they are prohibited from coming into the country for any reason. Inadmissibility can affect one’s ability to get a green card and to live and work in the U.S.

A person may be inadmissible to the United States based on one or more of several grounds:

  • Health
  • Criminal activity
  • National security
  • Likelihood of becoming a public charge
  • Lack of labor certification
  • Fraud or misrepresentation
  • Prior removals or unlawful presence

USCIS also lists “miscellaneous grounds of inadmissibility” that include practicing polygamists, former U.S. citizens who renounced citizenship for tax purposes, smugglers, student visa abusers, persons who entered the country illegally, and more.
