Hi,

 

I am currently in the process of applying for a K-1 visa. I have my case number and my petition is currently at the NVC awaiting to be sent to London Embassy. I have been looking at the DS-160 questions and the question 'are you a formed exchange visitor (J) who has not yet fulfilled the two year foreign residence requirement?'

 

I was on a J1 visa for 2.5 months from June 18-August 31 in 2018. I coached for a company in NJ for the summer and then sent the 30 days at the end of the visa travelling, I have since also had a H2B visa for 6 months From April-September2019. I have only just been made apparent of this, and I think this could possibly cause a problem considering I spent 6 months in NJ on a H2B visa. Can anyone clarify if the 2 year rule applies to my experience on the J1? I'm sorry, I'm just kinda worried now and need some help!

You need to look at your visa that was issued and the DS-2019 form. It will clearly state if you’re subject to the rule or not.

Thanks My ds-2019 box is checked that it does not apply for me but there is no sort of sign of it in my visa. nothing of the sort.

You're probably fine. My DS-2019 and visa both said I was subject. England also isn't part of the skills list.
