To get a waiver, first you need to fill the online application. You can find it here: http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/info/info_1296.htmlYou will receive a case number. You will then ask your country's embassy in DC to send the No Objection Statement to the Department of State. The waiver process processing times depends on your home country. Some process the No Objection letter quickly, others can take up to 6 months. Once you have supplied all of the required documentation to the State Department, the processing time for the waiver itself is about 6-8 weeks.The fee is $215.Here you can find Frequently Asked Questions on the Waiver process: http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/info/info_5504.htmlI hope I have answered your question.
