What is the I 192 Waiver and Who Can Apply for the I-192 Waiver?

The I 192 waiver is for inadmissible non-immigrant aliens who need to apply for advance permission to enter the U.S. on a temporary basis.

A non-immigrant alien may be considered inadmissible for various reasons, including health, financial, criminal, and security considerations.

The I 192 waiver allows inadmissible non-immigrant aliens to temporarily enter the U.S, even if they have been otherwise denied.

Who is Eligible for the I 192 Waiver?

In order for non-immigrant aliens who have been denied entry to the U.S. to apply for temporary entry into the country, they must meet one of the following qualifications:

How to Prepare the I-192 Waiver Form

Within your I-192 application you should include compelling evidence of why you should not have been denied previously. For example, if you are applying for a waiver of medical inadmissibility, your statement should describe, in detail, your medical condition. You should also present any relevant medical records of your condition that can aid immigration officials in evaluating a waiver such as a letter from your doctor explaining that you would not be a danger to society.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
