Zohar Law Can Help You Obtain a US Visa
THE WAIVERS OF INELIGIBILITY PROCESS
You can think of a waiver of ineligibility as a second chance to obtain a visa here in the United States. There are reasons why people are denied visas in the first place, such as having a communicable disease or being a threat to national security. In these cases, you may be denied a visa. However, if you are denied a visa for whatever reason, you can apply to have your case heard again under the waivers of ineligibility. Here, the US Attorney General can grant you a waiver for a visa.

Waivers of Ineligibility
Adding to the complexity of immigration law, the USCIS added a provision in January of 2013 that alters immigration policy; allowing those who are needing to return to their country of origin for their visa interviews, to apply for a provisional unlawful presence waiver. This amendment is known as an I-601A Provisional Waiver. The waiver is meant to reduce the amount of time that U.S. citizens might be separated from their immediate relatives, ultimately reducing the amount of hardship faced during the time of separation. The USCIS determined that lengthy stay requirements were unfair to those immediate relatives, granting them the right to remain in the U.S. until the time of their visa interview.
The I-601A waiver is different from an I-601 Waiver of Ground of Inadmissibility in that the immigrant in question is not able to file the application until after they have appeared for a visa interview in their country of origin and their visa application had been denied. By proving undue hardship caused by the separation, those with green cards can wait out the time here in the U.S.
