    2018 J1 WAIVER TIMELINE

    Good luck! Yes, you can do H1B with the DOS letter. I did that.

    It looks like this https://citizenpath.com/form-i-797-notice-action/ I think it's always a copy, because they keep the originals; kind of like a birth certificate. FYI -- Yes, I have a green paper that is that form with the waiver. That's what I needed for my GC and H1B applications

    For the embassy you need the actual waiver. It's a green paper with the Statue of Liberty printed on it.

    Then you have to contact UCSIS. Usually, you get the NOA1 very fast, like a week or so depending on where you live/holidays/etc.

    Did you receive a NOA1 with your number to check online your case? Yes, sometimes the paperwork DOS sends to UCISS gets lost. You need to call USCIS.

    J1 Waiver - Sponsor Views

    Decisions are final and you cannot apply again, unless you are using a different reason for the waiver (so instead of no objection you are doing one of the others)

    You need to contact USCIS again and tell them DOS sent the letter to them. They have to request it again. You have to tell DOS to send the letter to UCSIS again because they have never received it. (Try again.) To be honest, I don't know what else. DOS probably sent it to UCSIS and they lost it. Last resort would be contacting a congressman/senator of your area (other place of work or family member), and asking them to get DOS to send UCSIS the letter again. They have people that are immigration liaisons and deal with federal bureaucracy.

    @NIWjunkie I am not from Brazil but I have been on threads about J1 for a while. I have never heard of something like that and many Brazilians are in Brazil processing the J1 waiver. You should contact the Foreign Affairs Ministry in Brazil, specifically, an office dealing with consulate affairs or an office dealing with these waivers. In my case, the embassy forwarded the waiver information to an office in the Ministry in my home country, they prepare the waiver and forward it to the embassy, the embassy sends it to DOS. Moreover, the embassy cannot make the decision they told you, that is a federal policy, so someone from Brazil can tell them to stop. That is probably someone who has no clue how things work.

    The issue is that i-612 can be given on different basis so the no objection takes less than hardship, lets say. However. the stats are all aggregated in the same number.

    You can ask UCSIS for an expedite decision if you meet the criteria on their website. 3 months is worst case scenario. It varies a lot and some people get in 2 weeks.

    You have to contact DOS immediately.

    I faxed stuff and they added it. Attach a very short note at the top saying why you are sending them that. Include your name, case number, type of waiver.

    Sorry, I don't have the number any more. You might be able to find it on the web. I know they changed it at some point a few years ago, so try to get the most recent one. People doing the waiver have posted the number online. It might even be on this forum.

    There is also a fax that you can send stuff to. I don't remember the number.

    Yes, it could be anyone with DOS government funding, so not just Fulbright.
