I came to USA in 2016 on J1 visa that has 212 e residency
I came to USA in 2016 on J1 visa that has 212 e residency rule. I graduated from my first master in May 2018 and went back to Egypt to apply for F-1 visa.( I stayed there just 2 month so I didn't finish the two years requirement) I came back in July 2018 on F-1 and currently I am a student in my second semester. I am not planning to complete this second master as I want to run a business. So I want to change my Visa to E-2 as Egypt is from the treaty countries. However, I asked before about my First visa(J1and its requirement) can affect that and I was replied that I need to get the waiver. I already got the non objection from the Egyptian government so can I still make the case? As I searched online and I found that if I opened a case most probably it will be denied as my scholarship was funded by US government! Is it right? … read more
