Bars to Returning to the United States

Immigration Attorney in Ohio

After deportation, there may be certain bans placed on individuals to prevent them from returning to the United States for an extended period of time, if ever. Depending on the circumstances under which you were forced to leave the country, you may find yourself barred from returning to the United States for various amounts of time.

  • Unlawful Presence Bar

If you were found to be unlawfully residing in the United States for any period of time, then you will be deported and have a bar placed on your record to prevent your return to the United States. There will be at least a three- to ten-year bar against your return. This bar will vary depending on the amount of time that you were unlawfully residing in the States.

  • Prior Removal

Were you previously removed from the United States or deported back to your home country? If so, then you may have a lengthy extension bar preventing your return to the U.S. If you try to return before your bar is lifted, then you will be swiftly removed and may lose reentry privileges altogether.

  • Criminal Bar

If you are convicted of a serious felony while on a visa or even as a permanent resident green card holder in the United States, then you will be deported and sent back to your home country. A criminal conviction can also cause the government to put a ban or a bar on your travel to the U.S.

  • Fraud or Misrepresentation

It is an unfortunate but serious fact that some people who enter the United States will misrepresent themselves or make false statements regarding their visa applications or immigration status in order to enter the country. If you are found guilty of this crime, then you will be deported back to your home country and be barred from returning to the U.S.
