Hello everyone,

I studied in the US with a J-1 visa on a US government-sponsored program. Now, I want to return to work in the US.

I am on the way to completion of the 2-year foreign residency requirement, but I don't know what documentation I need to prove that I have completed it.

Could anyone advise on what documents would be sufficient to prove that I spent 2 years in my home country?

Is there a standard package of proving documentation or are there alternatives?

I would greatly appreciate your advice and input!

Well, what have you been doing for the past 2 years? Working? You can show continuous pay stubs. Living? You can show a lease or a mortgage. Going to school? Show enrollment for the past 2 years

Good luck

thanks canadian wife. she has been working for 2 yrs so she can show pat stubs. Her name is not on the lease of the house. however she can also show the airplane ticket and itenary.

I started a new topic with all the details but got no replies yet. I am copying it here:

I am new here and am in need of some urgent help. I am USC. My wife came to US on J-1 visa with 2 yrs home residency requirement. After completing her studies she went back to her home country and her two years will be up in end of august. We have already started the immigration process. We submitted DS230. I called NVC and they said that they reviewed our case and they need J-1 waiver.

1)How do I tell them that she does not need waiver since her 2 years HRR is done.

2)What proof can she send them to show she has been there for 2 years. Are copy of passport stamps with date of entry/exit sufficient? Or should we also send letter from her employer in her home country, stating that she has been working there for 2 years, Airplane ticket/itenary?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This came as a suprise since we played by the rules and spent 2 yrs apart
