    First of all, hello and thanks a lot for all the help you can bring.
    I am a J-1 and I'm starting a H1B process. First thing I need to know is if I need the waiver or not.
    My VISA says NOT SUBJECT to the 2 year residence requirement but my first DS2019 says subject to the 2 year residence requirement. I renewed my DS2019 and the new one says NOT SUBJECT to the 2 year residence requirement. So CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME? I dont know what to do!!! Thanks!!!
    When did you apply for the H-1b and when did you renew your DS2019? I might be able to help you if I knew these two pieces of information.

      Hello. Actually, I haven't applied for the h1-b because the lawyers here are waiting for me to get the waiver before starting the process. So the h1b filing is on hold until i do the waiver process. What I did is that I asked for advisory from the department of state. I don't know how long that will take. The problem for me on filing the waiver is that it will take A LOT of time. I already contacted the embassy and they told me that the process is long. I renewed my ds2019 on october last year (2005). Thanks for your help!!!
      Oh and one last thing, my renewed ds2019 doesn't have anything marked! just to clarify that
