The Immigration and Nationality Act sets forth various grounds of inadmissibility (ineligibility) which can prevent non-citizens from entering or obtaining lawful status in the United States. In addition to enacting these various grounds of inadmissibility, Congress has also enacted several waivers which can excuse certain grounds of inadmissibility. Qualifying applicants can apply for these waivers in order to excuse their inadmissibility and allow them to proceed with their underlying immigration petition.

Not all grounds of inadmissibility are waivable and its important to consult with an experienced immigration attorney, like those at The Law Office of George K. Gomez, in order to discuss whether a waiver is necessary, the various waiver options available, the grounds of eligibility for each waiver, and the likelihood of success given the unique circumstances of each particular case.



There are various immigration waivers which can allow a qualifying non-citizen to avoid the penalties of being found inadmissible. Click below to learn more about some of the most common immigration waivers:

  • INA § 212(a)(6)(C)(ii) – False Claim of Citizenship
