Aspects of Non-Eligibility for an I-601A Waiver
The I-601A can be used to avoid an additional ten years of waiting outside the U.S. If at all possible, we want to help you stay with your family during the time you are applying for a waiver. However, just as there are certain eligibility requirements, there are some disqualifying factors as well.
Certain people are not eligible for an I-601A waiver, such as:
- Those who have been convicted of certain crimes
- Those with one or more grounds of inadmissibility besides unlawful presence
- Those with complications surrounding their Immigrant Visa (IV)
- Those in removal proceedings that are still not been administratively closed
