Thread: J1 visa help and 2 year home residency requirement

  1. #1
    Hi everyone

    I entered the U.S. on a J1 visa with a 2 year home residency requirement. However when I finished my program, I did not return to my country but instead moved to canada where I got Canadian citizenship.

    My question is can I go to work in the US now without having to do the 2 year in my country of origin since I am canadian now or I will still have to go back and do the required 2 year home stay before I can get work visa for the US?

    Thanks
