Many thanks for this post Ashutosh! Once you complete the online form, your case number will be generated. I hope it helps!

Because once we appl for an Waiver, J1 wont be extended? Thank you for the reply. Notarization is required if not submitting in person. My home country is India, but I assume the procedure is pretty similar for other countries. I have received the certificate but the portal shows my application is under scrutiny.

For a better experience, please enable JavaScript in your browser before proceeding. I waited for five days to download nori from the website.
