I-212 Waiver for Prior Removal Order

Being deported from the U.S. is officially called a “removal.” Individuals who have been deported are considered inadmissible and barred from applying for a new visa for a period of 5, 10, or 20 years or permanently. Those who are eligible may petition to re-apply for a visa before their term of being barred expires. This is done by filing an I-212 which is called an Application for Permission to Reapply for Admission into the United States after Deportation or Removal.

To optimize your chances for success in applying for an I-212 waiver, you will need the help of one of our Marietta immigration attorneys. Applying for an I-212 waiver is a complex process requiring sufficient documentation and evidence to prove that you are eligible and worthy of being allowed to re-enter the U.S. At Klinke Immigration, our legal team is adept at building strong application packages for clients seeking this immigration benefit.

Information about the I-212 Waiver

How long you are barred from reapplying for a visa will depend on the reasons you were deported.

Common reasons for removal include:

  • Overstaying your visa
  • Entering illegally in the first place
  • Criminal convictions
  • Marriage fraud
  • Other immigration law violations

Once deported, your visa or lawful permanent residency is permanently canceled. In order to re-enter the U.S., you will have to start all over again with the immigration process. In order to start over, you will have to qualify and be approved to reapply with an I-212 waiver.

Being approved for an I-212 waiver will be at the discretion of the immigration officer who reviews your case. Many factors will be looked at in determining whether your application should be approved, including your family and social ties to the U.S., any hardship your inadmissibility causes to your family or employer, your moral character, and more.
