U.S. Cross Border Travel
There are many grounds of inadmissibility, such as criminal convictions or previous immigration problems such as an overstay or deportation.
If you are seeking entry into the United States as a nonimmigrant (e.g. Visitors under B category, Students under the F category, or Workers under the H or L category), you may be eligible to apply for a waiver to overcome the inadmissibility known as section 202(d)(3).
Three factors are important to consider whether a waiver is granted: (1) the importance of your reasons for coming to the U.S.; (2) the risk to society if you are allowed in the U.S.; and (3) the seriousness of any previous misconduct.
