There are five statutory bases upon which you can apply for a waiver of the two-year foreign residence requirement:

  • a no objection statement from your home government,
  • a request from an interested U.S. Government agency on your behalf,
  • a claim that you will be persecuted if you return to your country of residence,
  • a claim of exceptional hardship to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse or child if you are required to return to your country of residence, and
  • request by a designated State health agency or its equivalent.
