US Waiver Lawyers in Austin

While many Canadians are able to cross the US-Canada border with ease, many times Canadians are denied entry to the United States. This happens more often than one might think, and it can be highly embarrassing and distressing. Increased border security in recent years has led to more restrictions on who is admissible to the United States and who is not. In many cases, a criminal record can result in your being denied entry to the United States, even if your criminal conviction occurred many years ago. 

Reasons for someone being denied entry to the United States

A United States waiver can be obtained in many cases of inadmissibility in the United States. This waiver will last for five years (or less, in some cases) and must be shown to officials each time you want to enter the United States. You may be able to obtain a United States waiver for your own inadmissibility issue, but please be advised that not all inadmissibility issues will qualify for a United States waiver. Reasons someone might be considered inadmissible to the United States include:

– Having a criminal record, having committed a crime of moral turpitude, having convictions for multiple crimes or having a conviction history for certain crimes such as drug trafficking. ??- If you are ill, have a mental health problem or a physical health problem that renders you dangerous to others, you could face being denied entry to the United States. Having a communicable disease can also cause you to be inadmissible.??- Previous immigration violations that have caused you to be deported from the United States, or overstaying a United States visa in the past can also make you inadmissible.
