Although immigration waivers are useful for those who have committed certain violations, not everyone is likely to be eligible for them. In this blog post, we will discuss the types of people who are more likely to be granted a waiver.
Criminal vs. Civil Offenses
There are two main types of immigration waivers: those for criminal offenses and those for civil offenses. People who have committed a crime may be eligible for a waiver if they can prove that they pose no threat to public safety and that their offense was not serious. People who have committed a civil offense, such as entering the country without proper documentation, may be eligible for a waiver if they can prove that they meet all of the requirements for legal entry.
Minor vs. Major Offenses
Some people may be more likely to be granted a waiver than others. For example, people who have committed a minor offense are more likely to be granted a waiver than those who have committed a major offense. Similarly, people who have strong ties to their home country and who have no criminal history are more likely to be granted a waiver than those who do not have such ties or who have a criminal history.
Ultimately, whether or not someone is granted a waiver is up to the discretion of the immigration authorities. However, understanding which types of people are more likely to be granted a waiver can help increase the chances of being approved for one.
