If you were told it'll take somewhere between 6 months to 2 years then that is your answer.

No one here can tell you how much they need to check into your case.

I wish you good luck.

Thank you for the response .. But is there anyway I can call somebody to know about what exactly happening on my case. It's a whole big story I had to deal with since 2008 ?, finally when I was said my waver was accepted and will let know in and about 6 months -2 years, again i don't see any kind of response and I don't know whom to contact ?? Please help

Correction : I had applied for waver in 2014 ( it's almost 1 year 7 months plus since I have been said my waver is accepted)

No clue where to and how to find out.

My company in INDIA has offered me to visit onsite client location .. And I don't wanna miss it second time.

Please do me the needful..

Thanks in advance

Why do you need a waiver?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

What's 212b ?

212(b) is just a general rule about visa denials. We don't know the reason for denial.

"

(b) Notices of Denials.- (1) Subject to paragraphs (2) and (3) if an alien's application for a visa, for admission to the United States, or for adjustment of status is denied by an immigration or consular officer because the officer determines the alien to be inadmissible under subsection (a), the officer shall provide the alien with a timely written notice that-

(A) states the determination, and

(B) lists the specific provision or provisions of law under which the alien is inadmissible 19/ or adjustment of status.

(2) The Secretary of State may waive the requirements of paragraph (1) with respect to a particular alien or any class or classes of inadmissible aliens.

(3) Paragraph (1) does not apply to any alien inadmissible under paragraph (2) or (3) of subsection (a)."

Maybe you have a better chance having your company apply for a work visa because 212 is for misrep dought youll get back from that if they need to trust you arent lying when you say youll go home.

Can your job apply for you?

he has a ban for misrepresentation(lying), a work visa cannot help bypass a ban. and getting a work visa isn't easy to obtain in the first place. Unless he were to have a highly specialized degree where an American cannot fill said position it is not an option in the first place. by law US companies cannot hire foreign workers to fill US jobs unless they cannot find a qualified US citizen/resident. Not to mention it is a STUDENT visa he was denied for. Lying to US immigration has dire consequences.

I have seen you in several threads over the last few days giving out and suggesting wrong information. If you do not know the answer to a question/and or have no clue what you're talking about, don't answer and don't guess
