Let me explain a bit of whats going on.

In 2011 I was lucky enough to obtain a J1 internship VISA and work in Arizona for a year.

I returned at the end of January 2012. As a condition of my VISA I have to complete a 2 years home stay which means I cannot return to USA under any form of VISA except for vacation.

I have since learned that I can waive the 2 year home stay but I am hitting brick walls with how to do this.

Is there anyone out there that would have some advice or a point in the right direction.

Thank-You

I worked with Marriott at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge in the Spa and Restaurant. Why do you hate it now?
