- Appeal Sustained, Waiver Granted
The Field Office Director, Bangkok, Thailand, denied the waiver application. The applicant, through counsel, appealed the Field Office Director's decision, and the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) dismissed the appeal. On May 6, 2013, the applicant filed a motion to reopen and reconsider the AAO's decision in accordance with 8 C.F.R. § 103.5. The motion is granted, the prior AAO decision is withdrawn and the underlying appeal is sustained.
