1. Fill out the I-601a application form
This is the first step in applying for a waiver of inadmissibility. You will need to provide information about yourself and your spouse or unmarried child.
2. Gather required documents
Along with the application, you will need to provide documents such as your birth certificate, marriage certificate, and proof of your relationship to any qualifying relatives.
3. Have a qualified person complete the affidavit of support
This is a document that must be completed by someone who is willing to financially support you if you are granted a waiver.
4. Pay the application fee
The fee for applying for a waiver is $585. You can pay by check or money order, or you can pay online with a credit or debit card.
5. Make an appointment for biometrics collection
You will need to go to a USCIS office and provide fingerprints and other biometric data.
6. Attend your appointment and provide biometric data
Make sure to bring your appointment letter and any other required documents with you to your appointment.
7. Complete an interview at a USCIS office
As part of your application, you will need to schedule and attend an interview at a USCIS office. Be prepared to answer questions about your criminal history, health, and other factors that could make you inadmissible to the United States.
8. Receive a decision on your I-601a application
After your interview, you will be notified of the decision on your application. If you are granted a waiver, you will be able to proceed with your plans to immigrate to the United States. If you are not granted a waiver, you may be deported from the United States.
