J1 Waiver update . 2 year residence requirement (India not issuing waiver as passport has changed)


Registered Users (C)
Would appreciate the feedback based on the following sentence
"USCIS will and does consult with the U.S. Department of State on a case-by-case basis when it is impossible for the benefit requestor to satisfy the two-year foreign residence requirement."

I do not fit into any of the regular categories.
  • Exceptional hardship to U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (LPR) spouse or child;
  • Persecution;
  • No objection;
  • Interested U.S. government agency (IGA); and
  • Federal, state, and Conrad 30 programs for foreign medical graduates.
