Dear Customer,

Thank you for posting your immigration law question today.

Under 212a9b there is a 3-10 year immigration ban to the US where you were present in the US illegally.

If the period was more than 180 days it is 3 years and 10 years for more than 1 year.

The good news is that there are ways around this.

You need to apply for a waiver before applying for a tourist visa.

The waiver is a i-601 waiver.

I will be able to review your denial notice if you submit it here as an extra charge.

Please follow up with me if you need more information.

We are here to help.

In return remember to rate positively.

This is how I get a credit for my time and response.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

SO I hope you rate FIVE STARS today
