Guidance for Health-Related Grounds of Inadmissibility and Waivers: USCIS Policy Manual, Vol. 8

January 29, 2014 (1 min read)

"USCIS is issuing guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual on the health-related grounds of inadmissibility under INA 212(a)(1) and corresponding waivers under INA 212(g). ... USCIS currently provides guidance on medical grounds of inadmissibility in AFM 40.1; and the corresponding medical waivers in AFM 41.3.  This guidance is outdated and does not comprehensively address the policy.  The new guidance contained in the USCIS Policy Manual is controlling and supersedes any prior guidance that may be inconsistent." - USCIS, Jan. 28, 2014.
