Default [URGENT] J1 2-year Home Residency Requirement and Waiver

Came here on a J1 Visa (Intern category) and was subject to the 2-year rule. The J1 Visa was valid for 6 months, and I got the 2-year rule Waiver before the Visa expired. After I had received the Waiver, the same J1 Visa got extended for another 6 months (the same program, same DS-2019 number). I was given the same DS-2019, except with a new End Date. The extension did not say anything about being subject to the 2-year rule again.

So the order: J1 Visa (Subject to 2-year rule), obtained the Waiver, the J1 Visa got extended.

Question: Did the Waiver cover both my initial period and the extension since I got the Waiver first before the visa was extended? So now I am still free from the 2-year rule for the rest of my life? I don't plan to use a J1 Visa anymore in the future. Did the extension invalidate my Waiver? The Waiver was obtained based on the No Objection basis.

No it did not. You have to complete the terms of the waiver to change your visas or apply for residency down the line. It will show up then since you will have to submit copies of all your previous visa documents including the one stating the 2 year HRR. Will also show up in the form when you will go to the embassy to get your visa stamped.
Please consult an attorney but am pretty sure if you have to complete the terms of your waiver. There is no escape from the same.
