If you are interested in immigrating or visiting the U.S. and face an inadmissibility issue, this will need to be addressed prior to your attempt. Facing an inadmissibility issue means that you are not eligible to visit or immigrate to the U.S. for a number of different reasons.

Admissibility, on the other hand, means that you (the applicant) are eligible to travel to the U.S. There are a few reasons why you might be inadmissible.

Most people think that the only reason to be inadmissible is related to having a previous criminal record, this is not the case. There are many other reasons individuals may not eligible. For instance:

  • If you have a medical issue like a communicable disease, you may be refused entry;
  • If you suffer medical or physical disorders that can be dangerous for other people, your entry may be denied.
  • If you have a history of drug or substance abuse, then you may be inadmissible
  • Certain convictions related to crimes which are considered serious offenses or convictions related to the injury of others may make you inadmissible.
  • If you have contravened U.S. immigration policy in past, you may not be eligible.
  • If you have been previously deported or removed from the U.S.
  • If you have committed immigration fraud at anytime, you are not eligible either.

The above mentioned reasons are just a few factors but the list continues. An Immigration Officer, upon reviewing your application, can ultimately refuse your application at their discretion if they determine there are grounds to do so. The Officer has discretionary ability to make decisions on the spot.
