Permission to Reapply for Admission to the U.S.

Seek Guidance from a New Jersey Immigration Lawyer

For those who have been removed or deported previously from the U.S. and are prohibited from reapplying to return for at least five, 10, or 20 years, they may benefit from filing Form I-212: Application for Permission to Reapply for Admission into the United States after Deportation or Removal. This opportunity is only available to those under certain circumstances, including those who may be eligible for a visa.

These individuals may include:

  • Those who have been deported due to a court order from an immigration judge
  • Those who did not depart promptly after receiving an order of voluntary departure that was converted to an order of removal
  • Those who have been ordered expedited removal by U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Can I Increase My Chances of Approval?

The evaluation process is not standardized and will truly be up to the discretion of the reviewer. If you have a previous visa, that even if you are approved, your visa status will not be reestablished. However, you can apply for a new visa, though you must meet all of the qualification requirements for that particular visa. There will be many factors that can determine the outcome.

Such factors could be:

  • If you have close relatives living in the U.S.
  • If a denial of the application may cause undue hardship to your U.S. relatives
  • If you have shown remorse or reformed (applies to those deported due to criminal charges)
  • How long you lived in the U.S. and residency status during that time
  • If you demonstrate good moral character and a regard for U.S. laws
  • If your approval to be admitted to the U.S. would jeopardize the nation's security
