The Immigration and Naturalization act (INA) contains many waivers. The main goal of these waivers is to allow long time residents of the United States, or persons with strong ties to remain in the United States. One of these waivers is a waiver under INA §212(h). This waiver is applicable to several grounds of inadmissibility under the INA, including:
- Inadmissibility under INA §212(a)(2)(A)(i)(I) relating to crimes involving moral turpitude
- Inadmissibility under INA §212(a)(2)(A)(i)(II) offenses relating to possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana
- Inadmissibility under INA §212(a)(2)(B) relating to more than one criminal conviction
- Inadmissibility under INA §212(a)(2)(D) relating to prostitution
- Inadmissibility under INA §212(a)(2) (E) assertion of immunity from prosecution
There are three waivers under INA §212(h):
- Waiver under INA §212(h)(1)(A) relating to prostitution or the crime for which the immigrant is inadmissible occurred more than 15 years ago
- Extreme hardship waiver for criminal grounds if the immigrant’s United States citizen or lawful permanent resident qualifying relatives would endure extreme hardship under INA §212(h)(1)(B)
- Waivers for self-petitioners under the Violence Against Women Act under INA §212(h)(1)(C)
