What Is Inadmissibility?
Inadmissibility (formerly known as “excludability”) occurs when a prospective immigrant qualifies for a temporary visa or other immigration-related benefit but is denied for some other reason, such as financial status, criminal background, presence of communicable diseases or mental disorders, connections to terrorist organizations, etc. Inadmissibility can also occur when an immigrant has overstayed their visa, entered illegally, or otherwise violated the terms of a previously granted legal immigration status. Inadmissibility is permanent if an immigrant is found to have re-entered the country after being previously deported.
You may be able to obtain a waiver of inadmissibility, which essentially forgives one or more factors that would normally have prevented you from staying in the United States or acquiring lawful status. Obtaining a waiver is a challenging task, which is why hiring our team is critical for your future.

With over 15 years of experience, our team is prepared with the knowledge and skill needed to handle your unique immigration case.
Admissibility is not only relevant when you are being considered for first-time entry into the United States. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will consider your admissibility at every phase of the immigration process in which you are requesting a new or different status (e.g. moving from refugee status to permanent residence). This is important because, while you may be admissible for a temporary travel visa, you may be considered inadmissible for permanent residence for one reason or another.
You may be able to challenge a finding of inadmissibility if you can demonstrate that you have rectified the issues in question or that it is possible to do so. For example, if you are deemed inadmissible based on criminal charges but were later acquitted, this may be a game-changer in your case. Similarly, if you are deemed inadmissible due to financial difficulties that make you appear likely to become a ward of the state, evidence that family members within the United States are willing to support you may be useful in changing the court’s mind.
