H-1B DS-160 question regarding J1 visa wavier


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I got the opportunity to come to US to do an MS on J1 visa.

Right after MS, I started working and in the meantime got a J-1 Waiver. Now got H1 b visa approved. I am currently filling DS- 160 and saw this question :


"are you a former exchange visitor (j) who has not yet fulfilled the two year foreign residence requirement?"


What should I answer to this question:


Yes:  (because I haven't properly been home for 2 years) and then mention that I got a waiver and provide the waiver approval number


No:  Because I'm technically no longer required to fulfill that rule
