Default India -J1 Visa waiver- NORI

Many residency programs take the path of J1 visa instead of H1 visa. I understand Govt of India is not issuing 'No Obligation to Return to India (NORI) certificate to doctors since last year. This would force the residents to come back to India after finishing their residency program for a 2 year physical stay. If any one knows how residents (in final year) are getting J1 Visa waiver, please share information.

Thanks,
Resi

Most people apply for J1 waiver jobs at the end of 2nd year of residency. Apparently if you apply early, most will get a waiver job (though it might be difficult if you are fixated in working at a specific location).
