Since he is deported, he is subject to at least 10 years bar. His only chance is to get a waiver. You should retain a lawyer's assistance.

This question may not be answered if we do not know how long he was in the US, if he had departed prior to deportation and reentered without inspection, if he was deported for a crime and if you are a US citizen or not.

It depends on his manner of entry, immigration violations and if anything was filed prior to April 30, 2001. It seems like he will need to apply for the immigrant visa at his home consulate and will need a waiver. Consult with an immigration attorney.

Your husband is barred from returning to the U.S. because of his deportation. For how long depends on the grounds for his removal. He may be able to overcome the bar(s) through a waiver(s) once you filed an immigrant visa petition on his behalf and the petition is approved. It can take anywhere between one to two years to go through the application process, depending on what waiver(s)s are required. You need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney because his chances for a return depend on a host of issues that need to be assessed before even starting the application process
