What Is the Provisional Waiver?
As of March 4, 2013, illegal U.S. aliens may apply for a provisional waiver to their green card applications. The provisional waiver will allow the applicant to obtain an answer to their visa application from U.S. Citizenship prior to their consular visa interview.
If the applicant receives a "yes," then they can leave the United States and be allowed to return to the United States as a permanent resident. If the answer is a "no," the applicant will not get a visa and cannot leave the United States. If the applicant does leave, then he or she cannot return for 3 to 10 years
Am I Eligible?
The provisional waiver option is only available for individuals who are currently residing in the United States. Additionally, it is only available to those who are:
- Immediate relatives to United States citizens
- At least 17 years old
- Are allowed in the United States (i.e. have not committed any crimes or fraud)
- Awaiting a consular interview
Also, it must be true that if you are not granted the waiver, then your immediate relatives in the United States will suffer extreme financial hardship.
