What is inadmissability?

A person may be "inadmissible" immigration-wise if they fall under certain circumstances, including:

  • undocumented entry and immigration status violations
  • criminal history (for certain crimes)
  • health related reasons (they have certain communicable diseases)
  • previous removal or unlawful presence
  • belief that the person will be a security threat

Those are the main grounds for inadmissibility, and there are a few more.  If you're applying for a visa or adjustment of status and you've been found inadmissible, or think that you may be inadmissible, you should speak with an immigration attorney to see if you qualify for a waiver
