Immigrant visa applicants who have been denied or refused an immigrant visa and found to be inadmissible may be eligible to file a waiver of inadmissibility with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The process of applying for a waiver varies as it is based on the specific reason why the applicant was refused a U.S. immigrant visa. Some examples that may result in an applicant being found inadmissible include the following:
- Accruing unlawful presence during a previous trip to the United States.
- Being diagnosed with a communicable disease of public health such as active tuberculosis.
- Committing a crime of moral turpitude
- Fraud or misrepresentation
- Alien smuggling
