I've recently finished an exchange academic program in U.S. university, which was sponsored by U.S. Department of States. Currently, I'm back to my home country and fulfilling a 2-year home residency requirement that is part of my J1 visa.
I was just offered a temporary employment in headquarters of World Bank in Washington, DC. To be specific a 2-year non-renewable employment contract. If I agree to accept this offer, I will have to apply for G4 visa.
- Is there any chance to convince consul in local U.S. Embassy to postpone this 2-year home residency rule for a later time and obtain a G4 visa to temporarily work under abovementioned contract in U.S.?
- I've reviewed all 5 cases, when you are eligible for a waiver of 2-year rule, and I think I'm not elegible for any of them. Are there any other legal ways to obtain G4 visa in my case?
I would appreciate any information/advice from you guys. Thank you in advance.
