An applicant who is inadmissible for fraud or willful misrepresentation may be eligible for a waiver. A waiver of inadmissibility allows an applicant to enter the United States or obtain an immigration benefit despite having been found inadmissible.
The purpose of a waiver for inadmissibility due to fraud or willful misrepresentation is to:
- Provide humanitarian relief and promote family unity;
- Ensure the applicant merits favorable discretion based on positive factors outweighing the applicant’s fraud or willful misrepresentation and any other negative factors; and
- Allow the applicant to overcome the inadmissibility or removability ground.

The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA) limited the availability of the waiver and eliminated the possibility of applying for a waiver if more than 10 years have passed. A waiver is now available only to applicants who can demonstrate extreme hardship to:
- A U.S. citizen parent or spouse.
- An LPR parent or spouse;
- A U.S. citizen fiancé(e);or
- In the case of a Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) self-petitioner: the VAWA self-petitioner, or his or her U.S. citizen, LPR, or qualified alien parent or child.
