A foreign national who has been deported from the U.S. will find it tough to get another visa or green card allowing reentry. But it's not necessarily impossible. Reentry procedures following deportation vary based on the reason why the person was deported in the first place, the number of violations, and more.

Here are the typical wait times for reentry:

Five Years

  • Aliens ordered removed in an expedited removal proceeding
  • Aliens removed through removal proceedings initiated upon the alien’s arrival in the U.S.

Ten Years

Twenty Years

  • Aliens ordered removed more than once

Permanent Bar on Admissibility

Was there an order of removal by a judge?
