You can obtain an "No Objecjtion" statement from your country as a waiver to your 2 year residency requirement. Use this link to learn more:

As noted above, you can apply to waiver the HRR, but is your timeline is correct and you left the US in October 2006, the 2 years would be satisfied in October 2008, you are only talking about a few months.

Hi

I really don't know what will happen at the interview, I guess they will tell you to get a waiver. But in your case I don't think u should be wasting time or money on getting waiver, because the process takes at least 6 months (sometimes might even more) and your home residency will be completed in 9 months. So you can save over 700 USD in waiver application fees. Plus if your exchange program was sponsored by US government or department of state, the only way you'll be able to get visa is through extreme hardship to USC, which hopefully is not the case.

Anyway, I'm in the similar situation. Unlike you I will be mailing I-130 next week only. My exchange program finished in 2000. I stayed in home country for 6 months, and then went to the USA on F1 visa for the next 7 years. Now I'm back home and applying for immigrants visa. I estimated that by time i will get my interview I will have another 5-6 months left out of those 2 years. SO I was gonna ask you if you could share you experience with me once you go through you interview in Febary.

Thanks and good luck.

Hello, you need to double check your DS-2019 form, because the VISA means nothing if the DS-2019 form says different as me and my fiance just found out and are in the middle of applying for the HRR Waiver that he is subject to, we could have caught this a long time ago if we would have looked at the DS-2019 form and not the VISA. The VISA was wrong and the Embassy does not care.

hi,

what is DS-2019?

DS-2019 is a paper that you get from the University or college you went to study in order to get your visa. It has information for the Visa Consular about your intended studies in the US, scholarship or personal funds information, deparment name and signature of the University or Organization who issued you DS-2019. You need to keep all your forms.

If it has been more than 2 years since your return to a home country after you've been on J-1 visa you have nothing to worry about. Even more so because your visa says you don't have a requirement. But If I were you, I would bring all my old passports, especially one with a J-1 visa, and all DS-2019 forms to the interview. Just not to cause any delays and questions.

For those who has a requirement (2 year homestay) at the interview you need to show your passport's arrival departure stamps that shows that you have spent 2 years at home at the time you got to interview or prove of 2 year homestay requirement waiver.

If you were on Work and Travel program 2 year rule doesn't apply to you. Just at the interview you need to bring evidence that t was Work and Travel just in case.

I know I'm just at the beginning of the process, but after reading this post I have this question for future. Natashenika you mentioned that you mailed IAP-66 to NVC. Do they request it? Because I was on IAP-66 back in 1999 but last 7 years was on I-20 so I was hoping I won't have to bring up that J1 trip to USA during the immigration process in order not to have some unnecessary question at the interview.

Thanks for you help guys, I really appreciate it.

For everybody who had J-1 and applying for immigration visa. You might find it helpful. If you don't know when to apply before or after you fulfill your requirement here is the answer.

You may file an I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, on behalf of your wife; however, if the petition is approved prior to the two year home residence requirement being fulfilled, your wife would not be eligible to apply for a visa until after she has met the two year residence requirement. If you do file an I-130 on her behalf, your wife would also not be eligible for a K-3 non-immigrant visa while the I-130 Petition is pending until after the two year home residence requirement is fulfilled. Further, any time spent in the United States on a tourist or other non-immigrant visa would not count toward the home residence requirement, as physical presence in the country of nationality or last residence is required.

You may wish to explore a J-1 Visa Waiver. INA Section 212(e) allows waiver of the two year home residence requirement under certain circumstances. More information on the J-1 Visa Waiver is on Department of State's web-site at the following link: http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/info/info_1296.html . `
