I have been to USA twice, first 2003-2004 as an exchange student with J-1, second time year 2005 for six months with J-1 as I was doing my thesis. It says on this latter J-1 visa that "two year rule does apply". It expired 31/12/2005.
Now the same company I worked for year 2005 wants me back to work for them. This time permanently or several years, which ever is possible. They also want me there as soon as possible. I called to US Embassy here in Finland and officer there told me that even though the two year rule did apply, it is possible to get a visa or some other work permit to US before that time has gone.
Could you please help me what to do, how to proceed and get this thing started. I visited www.travel.state.gov (this is where the officer told me to go to) but I could not find anthing reasonable. He also told me that I have to fill some form from that website and apply a special permission from US to overcome that two year rule.
I am kind of lost with this issue at the moment so any help would help significantly!
EDIT: Hmm... is this the right place to visit? http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/info/info_1296.html
