I-212 Interview

Unfortunately for many different reasons, individuals have found themselves in situations resulting in deportation or removal from the United States whether it was intentional or unintentional. The I-212 waiver is available for those foreigners stuck in that type of situation. Essentially, it is an application for permission to reapply for admission into the US. This specific waiver is only one of many that can give relief to those under immigration law violations.

Documents Needed Along With Application

Reasons an Immigration May Be Deported/Removed from the United States

Violating the Terms of Your Visa

If you fail to follow all the guidelines specific to your type of visa you are most likely going to be deported. This includes lying in your application, working without permission, using fake documentation, faking a marriage, and/or committing a crime, etc.

Failure to Advise of Change of Address

It is a crime for immigrants not to submit immediate changes of address to US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You have ten days to notify them. You can use the Online Change of Address form on the USCIS website to do so.

Crime Violations

This is the most common reason for deportation or removal from the United States. Not all crimes result in deportation, but those relating to drugs, violence, firearm offenses, human trafficking, and the smuggling of illegal aliens into the United States have a strong chance of causing someone to be removed. Other types of crimes that could cause deportation may include family or domestic violence, fraud, failure to register as a sex offender, and almost any type of aggravated felony.
