The US embassy in Mumbai banned me in 2015 for giving wrong information about my marriage. I want to know how many years I'm banned for. How can I know?

    You could ask them, perhaps. What exactly did they say to lead you to believe that you were banned?

    You are banned forever. There are waivers available but those are very hard to come by. What kind of visa did you apply for?

    @DanNeely Marriage fraud which involves an actual albeit fraudulent marriage between a citizen and noncitizen is totally different from a non immigrant lying about his/her marital status on visa forms. Aug 6 '18 at 21:05

    @TheZealot that is discussed in (a)(6)(c)(I) about halfway down. Aug 6 '18 at 23:24

If you were banned for giving wrong information per your own words, then it is a ban for misrepresentation or fraud. It makes you permanently inadmissible and you must apply for a waiver for the inadmissibility to be waived.

Waivers for fraud are very very difficult to get.
