When a person is inadmissible, it means that they may not be allowed entry to the United States, usually because the person violated some aspect of national immigration policy. Being in the country illegally is grounds for inadmissibility. For example, a non-US citizen who accrues more than one year of unlawful presence in the United States becomes inadmissible to the country for a period of ten years. However, this rule is particularly rigid and can have effects on American citizens and permanent U.S. residents, which is why, on a case specific basis, the law allows certain inadmissibility statuses to be waived, and the formerly inadmissible person can enter the U.S.
Extreme Hardship Usually Required
In most cases, a person deemed inadmissible will have to file for an I-601 waiver of inadmissibility and show that extreme hardship will befall a qualified U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident if the immigrant applicant is not allowed to enter the country.
