A visa waiver will allow some foreign nationals to travel to the United States without applying for a visa. However, there are some stipulations to the waiver program under immigration law, including:


  • You cannot stay in the United States for over 90 days on a waiver 
  • You cannot work or study in the United States while on a waiver
  • You cannot change your status to another category while on a waiver
  • Foreign nationals with a criminal record are often excluded
  • You will be excluded from the waiver program if you have previously abused the terms of the program


In many instances, a visa waiver is the best option for foreign nationals who wish to travel to the United States under certain conditions. However, applying for a waiver is not a simple process. U.S. immigration law is complex and often, waivers will be rejected or denied on the basis of errors or mistakes in the application. Hiring a qualified immigration attorney is your best option if you want the waiver process to go as smoothly and quickly as possible.
