J1 looking for NIW

Published Mar 18,2019 By NanoScientist

Hi,

I’m a J1 postdoc and started my 2 years contract few months ago. My DS-2019 is silent but my visa mentions two years home residency requirement. I want to know if I need to get the J1 waiver first before going for EB2-NIW or it can be done other way around as well.

Thanks!

You can file I-140 before obtaining the J1 waiver, but the waiver has to be obtained prior to filing I-485.
