Deferred Inspection [Immigration] Law and Legal Definition
Deferred inspection refers to an inspection conducted by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers that takes place on a date after an individual’s initial application for admission into the U.S. An order to appear for a deferred inspection will usually be issued if primary and secondary inspections at the port of entry cannot generate an immediate determination as to the individual’s U.S. immigration status.
A deferred inspection scenario occurs when the inspector cannot admit the arriving lawful permanent resident (LPR) at the time of entry because there exist legal problems or suspected violations with the immigration documents (visa).
