ninturi posted a topic in J-1 WaiversI am writing to ask your opinion whether I am subject to the two-year foreign residence requirement, 212(e). I am a physician from India. I arrived in the U.S.in 2009, to participate in residency program in Louisiana. I remained in the residency program only for 12 months. My contract was not extended & I did not complete the entire three years of residency training. I think this requirement is included in law so that the J1 visa acquired citizen will serve the home country with his/her newly acquired skills. I haven't acquired any skill as I didn't complete my program. I have been in J-2 visa status since 2010. My husband is a physician in J-1 visa status. He will complete his residency in July 2013. He has an offer of employment in a physician shortage area and he will apply for a J-1 visa waiver. 1) As I didn't complete the three year residency training, please tell me whether I will still be subject to 212(e) when my husband receives his J-1 waiver. Thank you for your time
