I was an exchange student in 2011 - 2012 academic year . As my program was funded by U . S . department of State , I am subject to 2 years home residency requirement ( HER ) . I plan to marry my finance who is U . S . citizen , who is now in my home country as an exchange student . In May 2013 he is leaving back to the U . S . We would like to marry as soon as possible . By the time he leaves my country , I will have 1 . 25 years of HRR fulfilled already . I intend to apply for no - objection statement from the organization that sponsored my study in U . S . , but I have heard that since I was using U . S . government funds , I am not likely to get the waiver . However , I completed most of the requirement , and I wonder If there is a good chance of me obtaining home residency requirement waiver .
