Immigration to the U.S. can be challenging, and some people may be considered inadmissible for a variety of reasons. Inadmissibility refers to situations where someone is denied permission to adjust their status or apply for a visa. People are often considered inadmissible because they pose a risk to citizens. For instance, individuals with multiple criminal convictions or who have violated immigration laws are inadmissible. However, some grounds of inadmissibility can be waived after considering an individual’s specific case.
