J-1 Waiver

J-1 Waiver: U.S. immigration law provides five ways to waive two-year home-country physical presence requirement in connection with J-1 visa: 1) no objection statement issued by the home country’s government; 2) request by an interested U.S. federal government agency; 3) persecution based on race, religion, or political opinion if returning to the home country; 4) exceptional hardship to a U.S. citizen (or lawful permanent resident) spouse or child of J-1 visa holder; 5) physician waiver if the physician has a job offer to work on a full-time basis (at least 4o hours/week) in a designated health care professional shortage area. Yang & Associates LLP has helped many clients receive J-1 waivers through exceptional hardship, physician waiver, and interested US federal government agency.
