If you have violated an immigration or any other law and are inadmissible, you will need to apply for an Immigration waiver. A waiver is a pardon granted for a specific violation by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. There are different types of waivers, including waivers of inadmissibility and waivers of deportability. A person not eligible to be admitted into the United States or to adjust his/her status may obtain waiver of inadmissibility. Waivers usually require the applicant to demonstrate extreme hardship to a US citizen or permanent resident spouse or parent.
