|Immigration and Nationality|
There are several different types of immigration violations that would lead an individual to be found inadmissible. Please click here for a summary of misrepresentation and fraud. The following is a list of some of the more common grounds of inadmissibility:
Entering the United States Without Inspection (EWI)
If an individual is inadmissible if he or she is present in the United States without being admitted or paroled, or arrives in the United States at any time or place other than as designated by the Attorney General. There is a limited exception for certain battered women and children.
Failure to Attend Removal Proceeding
An individual is inadmissible for 5 years after departure from the United States, if he or she failed or refused to attend or remain in attendance at a proceeding to determine the alien's inadmissibility or deportability.
Individuals Previously Removed from the United States
An alien who has been ordered removed is inadmissible for at least 5 years. If the individual left the United States without allowing the removal to occur, he or she is inadmissible for 10 years. If the individual has a second removal order, he or she is inadmissible for 20 years. If the alien was convicted of an aggravated felony, he or she is inadmissible for 20 years.
If an alien was unlawfully present in the United States for a period of more than 180 days but less than 1 year, he or she will be inadmissible for 3 years upon the date of departure. If the individual was unlawfully present for more than one year before leaving the United States, he or she will be inadmissible for 10 years. (There are limited exceptions to this rule.)
