Under certain conditions, any non-U.S. citizen, even with lawful status, can become inadmissible to re-enter the U.S. Conviction(s) for certain crimes or types of conduct are considered “inadmissible offenses.”

Inadmissibility is a determination of whether specific immigration laws were violated – specifically § 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act – preventing the lawful admission at U.S. port of entry and/or the Adjustment of Status to lawful permanent residency.

An inadmissible offense could also prevent one with legal status from re-entering U.S. after an international trip abroad. Admission into the U.S. is never guaranteed, even with an approved entry document or legal permanent residency.

Inadmissible offenses could prevent your admission, such as: a previous stay in the U.S. without lawful status for 180 days or more; a prior arrest, conviction or deportation (even if since resolved), and known issues of fraud.

Inadmissible offenses in Atlanta also include:
Crimes Involving Moral Turpitude (unless misdemeanor with 6 months or less jail sentence)
Evidence of Prostitution, or other Commercialized Vice
Controlled Substance Conviction, or “reason to believe” non-citizen involved in Drug Sale/Trafficking
Conviction for any 2 or more crimes, with total of 5 or more years in prison
