A 601 waiver, also known as an “extreme hardship waiver”, allows certain immigrants to obtain a green card or other immigration benefit despite being inadmissible to the United States. The waiver forgives prior immigration violations if the applicant can prove that denial of the benefit would cause “extreme hardship” to a qualifying U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident relative.
To qualify for a 601 waiver, you must:
Common situations where a 601 waiver may help:
Note that some grounds of inadmissibility can NOT be waived with a 601, such as security and terrorism concerns.
The main requirement for a 601 waiver is to prove that your U.S. citizen or permanent resident relative will suffer “extreme hardship” if you are denied the green card or other immigration benefit. Extreme hardship is determined on a case-by-case basis.
According to USCIS policy, common hardship situations are NOT enough, such as:

It also helps to submit evidence like doctor letters, bank records, mortgage statements, and affidavits from people familiar with your situation. Describe in detail how your relative would be impacted in multiple aspects of life.
The 601 waiver application is filed on Form I-601. You’ll need to include:
Processing times for 601 waivers vary widely, from a few months to over a year. Approval rates also vary based on individual circumstances. Using an experienced immigration attorney can help ensure you submit a strong application.
A “provisional waiver”, filed on Form I-601A, is also available in some cases. This allows certain applicants who are already in the U.S. to complete much of the waiver process before leaving the country for visa interviews.
Whether you pursue a regular or provisional 601 waiver, highlighting your qualifying relative’s extreme hardship is key. With compelling documentation and legal support, even applicants with significant prior immigration violations can gain approval.
