It depends on the grounds of deportation. If the deported foreign national was deported for committing an aggravated felony, then he/she is barred forever from re-entering the U.S. If the deported foreign national was deported for any other reason, their is a bar from admission is ten years. That ten year time frame can be waived if an extreme hardship (resulting from the deportation) exists for a qualifying relative in the U.S.
