An I-212 waiver is a type of waiver that can be granted by the United States government to allow certain individuals to enter or remain in the United States. They’re allowed to enter despite the fact that they may not meet the requirements for a visa or other authorization. The 212 waiver is named after section 212(d)(3) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the government to waive certain grounds of inadmissibility for non immigrants seeking to enter the United States temporarily. The 212 waiver can be granted for a variety of reasons, including medical, humanitarian, or national interest grounds. If you have been denied a visa or other form of entry to the United States, you should request a 212 waiver to be allowed to enter the United States.
