Can I serve my two-year home residence requirement in the U.S. or a third country?

The period of time a former exchange visitor spends in the U.S. or a third country may count towards fulfillment of the two-year home residence requirement if the person is employed by his or her government in its military service or career foreign service and that person is serving in a country other than the home country at the behest of his/her government. Before the Department can determine that the individual has satisfied the foreign residence requirement, we require a written statement from an official of the home government (through the home-country's embassy in Washington, D.C.) that the individual was or will be serving in the U.S. or third country in the service of his/her home country and at that government's request.
