Under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1996 are various provisions for the I-601 Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility, formerly titled Application for Waiver of Ground of Excludability. This memo addresses the structure and content of an Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility under INA § 212(a)(9)(B)(v), 212(h), and 212(i).
Court decisions addressing the I-601 waiver may change the existing law or create new law. Counsel are advised to independently confirm whether the law in their circuit or BIA decisions have changed existing law or precedent since the date of this memo.
For the purposes of this memo the Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility will be referred to as an I-601. The I-601 form may also be used for certain waivers that do not require a showing of extreme hardship to a qualifying relative, e.g. a waiver of the vaccination requirement. Waivers that do not require a showing of extreme hardship to a qualifying relative are not the subject of this memo.
