Definition: A medical waiver permits an immigration applicant to be allowed into, or remain in the United States despite having a health condition identified as grounds of inadmissibility (when a person is not allowed to enter the country). Terms and conditions can be applied to a medical waiver on a case by case basis.
Examples: Ed, a single man from the UK in his twenties and a drug abuser, is going to move in with his father who lives in Montana, in order to get him away from drugs. Although drug abuse is a reason for inadmissibility, the USCIS issues a medical waiver, allowing Ed to enter the U.S.
