Last week, I finally received my waiver. Here are some infos and tips
about applying for a waiver:
The waiver process took approximately 4 months total:
- A few days until the Swiss Embassy sent the letter of no-objection
- A month for the USIA to write the recommendation for the INS
- 3 month for the INS to decide
So make sure that you start early.
Check out the Swiss Embassy web site for who to contact to get the forms.
The most important thing (besides the checks :-)) will be the letter of
no-objection of the Embassy and that you do not fall under the skill
and medical list. These people cannot get a waiver unless some US Agency
needs them badly.
Hope that helps.
