Somerset, NJ asked in Immigration Law for New Jersey

Q: Do I need the Advisory Opinion for my J-1 visa?

I held the J-1 visa for my internship a few years ago. Both the DS-2019 form and the J-1 visa note that 'Not subject to the two-year residency requirement', and 'Bearer is NOT subject to the section 212(e)'. Moreover, the subject/field code is 15.0000, which is not on the Skill List of PRC.

I am applying the PR and wondering do I still need the Advisory Opinion or even the J-1 waiver?

A: Nope. If it is that clear, you should be fine. If you are still worried, consider a consultation with an immigration attorney in your state.
