  • J1 to H1b

    I hold a J1 visa. I have been on J1 status and was granted the waiver of the two-year foreign residence. This was granted under the no-objection category.
    Now, I have an academic job offer and my new employer is going to sponsor my H1B. However, the attorney working with my case says that INA 248(2) makes J-1 holders ineligible for CoS. I have no idea of the meaning of INA 248(2), and will have a phone call with him and my employer about this.
    I have never heard of this, and everyone (lawyers, international offices at Universities, other people that changed status) I have spoken with in the past told me that once I have the waiver I could apply to the H1B visa.
    I need to wait some days for the said phone call and was wondering if someone could clarify.
