What Is the Difference Between Waiver and Provisional Waiver?

“The difference between a waiver and a provisional waiver is that a waiver is typically done outside of the United States. If the person has to leave the United States, that waiver is going to be filed for while the person is outside of the United States. A provisional waiver is something that was approved and began actually March 4th, 2013. And what it does is, it allows spouses of U.S. citizens and minor children of U.S. citizens, to file for those waivers while they wait in the United States. It is highly beneficial because now, that family can remain together in the United States without having to depart in order to receive the results of the waiver.”
