    My firm has had some success with such waivers, however I agree with the embassy, "some people get it, some people don't."  It is probably helpful to have it prepared by an attorney and most don't charge a great deal for the waiver request.

    Hi DrSMjh,

    I am still on the academic training (similar to OPT) and I still have a year and half left. I am planning to apply for the waiver in the summer.

    How about you?

    Γεια σου, Χάρη,

    I am writing to you as a former CASP scholar who is going through the J1 Waiver process. I would enormously appreciate your input on a couple of questions. It's probably a blast from the past but I could really use the advice of someone who can understand me!

    A little about me: I am a Cypriot and was under J1 2009-2014. I left the U.S. in 2014 to begin working in another EU country at a large, multinational company. I got an opportunity to transfer to the company's U.S. offices but J1 is blocking me. The company's attorneys cannot help with J1 waiver. I already submitted the waiver request to the Waiver Division but I fear I didn't do a good job with it. My questions are: -For sponsor views, did you proactively reach out to USAID to ask them to support you? If so, what did you ask from them? (I mention USAID because I believe they were the sponsor of CASP, whereas Fulbright was just the administrator. I might be wrong.) -What did you outline in your statement of reason? -Did you send supporting documents and if so, what kind? Did you mail these yourself or does the writer of each supporting letter have to send them to the Waiver Division?  Σ'ευχαριστώ και να'σαι καλά!

    If you have a question, please start your own thread rather than reviving a 6 year old thread, that the poster has not returned to in 6 years  and expect an answer.

    Γεια σου, Κύπρο,

    About sponsor views, I asked AMIDEAST that they were administrating my scholarship in the US, they told me that they would recommend against the waiver.

    On my statement of reason I stated the purpose of my scholarship that was to bring more skills and economic benefit to Cyprus. I made the case that according to a certain US government list that Cyprus wasn't in need of the skills anymore and that I would better serve Cyprus if I returned under my own terms and not be forced to go to Cyprus risking unemployment. I also showed ties to Cyprus through family property.

    BTW, in the event you don't get the waiver, any time spend in Cyprus (e.g. vacations that you probably took) counts towards the 2-year requirement. Some people get to the US through special visas and go back to Cyprus and work remotely for 2-3 months a year until they fulfill the two years. But hopefully, it will not get to that.

    Καλη επιτυχία!
