Registered Users (C)
I am beginning the process of J-1 waiver, and I need to fill the NORI statement and affidavit posted here www . indianembassy . org/ consular/ nori.pdf (remove spaces)

I have 3 questions:

1. My J-1 was not sponsored by either US or Indian government. However, on page 3 it says

The Exchange programme was sponsored
by the Government of /Agencies of the Government of ____________________ and financed by the
Government of / Agencies of the Government of _____________________ .

Should I leave it blank??

2. On item 2, it has an OR option. Do we have check on one of them? Or just leave it untouched?

3. My old passport from India had expired, and now I have a renewed passport issued from CGI Houston. What passport information should I enter in these forms. Will the passport office in India be confused if I enter my new passport number? Or should I attach a separate sheet explaining my new and old passport situation?

Thanks!
