The Waiver Ineligibility self-test is for determining whether you have a ground of inadmissibility for which no waiver is available. This self-test does not cover grounds of inadmissibility for which a waiver IS available, nor does it cover aggravating factors that affect chances of success on a waiver. This self-test is best for people who know they need a waiver of inadmissibility and want to learn more about whether they will be eligible to apply.
The self-test is for informational purposes only. It is not legal advice and is not meant to be a substitute for a consultation with a licensed attorney. Always speak to an attorney before departing the United States or taking action on your immigration case.
The best way to use the test is to fill it out prior to meeting with an attorney so you have a better idea of what to discuss during your consultation. Many of the terms used in the test have specific legal definitions with too many exceptions to concisely describe here. Even if the test shows that you are probably ineligible for a waiver, an attorney may determine, upon closer examination, that you are in fact eligible. The test-taker should also be aware that there are less common grounds of ineligibility that do not appear on this test - for example, committing acts of torture - and an attorney may determine that you are not eligible for a waiver even if this exam does not indicate ineligibility.
