I-212 Waiver

An I-212 waiver allows someone who has been deported from the U.S. to apply lawfully for permission to enter before their period of ineligibility is up. The full name of an I-212 waiver is a “Reapplication for Admission After a Prior Deportation Order.” Applicants may not return to the United States until your I-212 application has been filed with the Department of Homeland Security and is subsequently approved. Failure to do so may result in your permanent inadmissibility from the United States.


I-212 waivers are discretionary. In other words, the government has the power to deny these applications if they chose to do so. Factors that go into the government’s decision include:


  • The applicant’s criminal and immigration history,

  • Evidence of moral character and rehabilitation, and

  • Hardship to family members lawfully present in the United States.

  • The reason the alien was deported.

  • How long ago the alien was deported.

  • The length of the alien’s lawful residence in the U.S. (if any).

  • The applicant’s moral character and respect for law and order

  • Whether the applicant is inadmissible to the U.S. under other sections of law

  • The applicant’s family responsibilities in the United States

  • Hardship to family members who are lawfully present in the U.S.

  • The need for the applicant to work in the U.S.

The Jurado Firm has been extremely supportive during my naturalization process.  Their response time is excellent and they treat you like family not a client.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for legal immigration support.

Carlos Jurado was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Not only was he able to help us out in a desperate time of need, he did it with such compassion and offered emotional support to myself and those I care about most. I definitely recommend Carlos Jurado without reservation.
