Chris M. Ingram, ESQ – Travel Ban Waivers

by Law Offices of Chris M. Ingram on March 7, 2017

See if one of these waivers create an opportunity for you.

For those caught up in President Trump’s second travel ban, you may not be aware of the various waivers that you might qualify for – so let’s take a closer look.

If you are a citizen only of Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria and do not already have any kind of US visa or green card, then take a look at these waivers below to see if you qualify.
.
(i)    the foreign national has previously been admitted to the United States for a continuous period of work, study, or other long-term activity, is outside the United States on the effective date of this order, seeks to reenter the United States to resume that activity, and the denial of reentry during the suspension period would impair that activity;

(ii)    the foreign national has previously established significant contacts with the United States but is outside the United States on the effective date of this order for work, study, or other lawful activity;

 
(iii)   the foreign national seeks to enter the United States for significant business or professional obligations and the denial of entry during the suspension period would impair those obligations;
 
(iv)    the foreign national seeks to enter the United States to visit or reside with a close family member (e.g., a spouse, child, or parent) who is a United States citizen, lawful permanent resident, or alien lawfully admitted on a valid nonimmigrant visa, and the denial of entry during the suspension period would cause undue hardship.
