Immigrant Visa Applicants

A determination on your eligibility for a visa cannot be made until the day of the visa interview. If you are found ineligible under Section 212(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, you will be advised if a waiver of ineligibility is available to you and provided with further information at that time.  Immigrant and fiance visa applicants file the Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility, with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and not this office.  Please note:  You cannot file an I-601 before you attend the visa interview.

Immigrant and fiance visa applicants should refer to the documents listed here (PDF) when applying for a visa.
