What is a United States waiver when denied entry?

When dealing with many of the reasons that people are denied entry to the United States, there are actually special documents that you can apply for called United States waivers of inadmissibility. Denied Entry to the United States 8

These waivers, good for up to five years in some cases, will allow you into the United States even if you are inadmissible. The waiver has to be shown to immigration officials whenever you enter the country.

When can I apply for a United States waiver?

    Hello Oday,

    Thank you for your post. I am sorry to hear that you were refused entry, we can definitely help you to establish a way to have that negative decision overturned and reapply. But in order for me to do so, I would need to learn more information about you as an applicant and what took place at the port of entry and the circumstances surrounding your refusal. Kindly complete this form for me and you will be contacted once it has been reviewed. MF
