What are the Legal Requirements of section 212(d)(3) Waiver?

Section 212(d)(3) non-immigrant waivers (also referred to as 212(d)(3)(A) waivers) are adjudicated by the Admissibility Review Office located in Washington D.C.

The three criteria for granting a waiver under § 212(d)(3) are below:

  • The risks of harm in admitting the applicant

  • The seriousness of the acts that caused the inadmissibility

  • Importance reasons for seeking entry.


Both the Foreign Affairs Manual and the Dept. Of State regulations provide that:

Consular officers may recommend waivers for any legitimate purpose such as medical treatment, family visits, business conferences, and tourism, etc.

Some consulates will accept the waiver application on the day of the interview and then the officer will review your visa application, make an initial finding of inadmissibility, and he will ask you to return with the waiver application and supporting documents. After reviewing your waiver application, the consular officer will make a recommendation for issuance of the waiver, then submit it to the Admissibility Review Office in Washington D.C. for a final decision.

If you have a criminal history record in any other country, you must also obtain a copy of the court record from the actual court of conviction indicating plea indictment, disposition or conviction for each and every crime.

If the record is not available, you must obtain an official letter from the court of jurisdiction stating the reason why the record is not available.
