Inadmissibility: Common Reasons People Are Denied Entry to the U.S.

a visa card denied

If you want to request a U.S. visa, it is important to be aware of common reasons why people are denied entry. Although there are various reasons why people are denied entry to the United States, the most common reason is for the protection of U.S. citizens. Our Orange County immigration attorneys explain other common reasons why people are denied a U.S. visa.

Common Reasons for Inadmissibility

People who display certain characteristics will most likely not be allowed to enter the United States. Common reasons for inadmissibility include:

  • Prostitutes
  • Spies
  • Nazis
  • Terrorist
  • Drug traffickers
  • Drug abusers or addicts
  • Having criminal convictions
  • Failing to have proper vaccinations
  • Having committed immigration violations
  • Those likely to become a “public charge.”
  • Containing a communicable disease of public health significance
  • Containing a physical or mental disorder that might cause harm to themselves or others

What Happens If I am Inadmissible to the U.S.?

After reviewing your case, the U.S. State Department and the Department of Homeland Security may deny your entry to the U.S. if they found you inadmissible. This means that they can block you any time you try to cross the border, apply for a green card, or apply for any other type of visa.

If you are found inadmissible, there is still hope. Depending on your reason for inadmissibility, you may be able to file a waiver to get your case approved. An experienced immigration attorney can analyze your case and help you become admissible to the U.S.
