Major Proposed Change in Immigration: New Process for Waivers to be decided in the United States

There is a major proposed announcement changing the Immigration process for many foreign nationals who are illegal in the United States. At present, many people must travel outside the United States and wait months if not years to seek forgiveness (a waiver) to re-enter the U.S.

Now, the Obama administration is proposing to allow certain relatives of U.S. Citizens to apply for the waiver and wait inside the United States. Then once the immigrant petition (I-130) and waiver (I-601) have been approved, the foreign national can go to simply and expeditiously pick up the visa from their home embassy or consulate.

The proposal was preliminary announced this morning and will become official once published in the Federal Register on Monday, January 9, 2012.

Below is the Advance copy of the USCIS notice that would allow certain immediate relatives of U.S. Citizens to request INA 212(1)(9)(B)(v) unlawful presence waivers, prior to departing the U.S. for consular processing of their immigrant visa application.
