The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) has strict eligibility requirements
which individuals must meet before they will receive authorization for
a visa or green card. Under the IRA, committing a crime involving moral
turpitude or conspiring to commit such a crime will be grounds for inadmissibility.
Any violation of state, federal or foreign laws pertaining to controlled
substances will also make an individual ineligible to receive an immigrant visa, non-immigrant visa or green card. In cases
where a crime of moral turpitude was committed by an individual prior
to the age of 18, and at least 5 years have passed since the completion
of the individual's assigned sentence, he or she may be able to pursue
a visa or green card despite having a criminal past. There are also circumstances
when, with the help of a skilled immigration attorney, an individual may
be able to seek a waiver of inadmissibility.
