    Here is an article written by Henry J. Chang, hope you will find all information you need in this article:

    General Waiver for Nonimmigrants

    Even if no specific waiver exists, it is still possible in most cases to obtain a waiver of inadmissibility permitting the alien to enter the United States for nonimmigrant purposes. Under INA 212(d)(3), an alien who is excludable other than for security and related grounds (with the exception of export violations), foreign policy grounds or participation in Nazi persecution or genocide may be admitted temporarily as a nonimmigrant despite his or her inadmissibility.
    In Matter of Hranka, 16 I&N Dec. 491 (BIA 1978), the Board of Immigration Appeals determined the criteria for an application under INA 212(d)(3). The three criteria considered are:

    the risk of harm to society if the applicant is admitted;

    the seriousness of the applicant's prior violation(s) of immigration or criminal law, if any; and

    the nature of the applicant's reasons for seeking entry.
    Until October 1, 2002, waivers of inadmissibility under INA 212(d)(3) were valid for up to a maximum of one year. However, since that date it is possible to apply for a waiver of up to five years.

    Good luck.
