I am not an expert, but as far as I know all J1 visas require return to a home country for 2 years.

Hello, it will always be subject to the two year if you get any kind of payment direct or indirectly from the US Goverment (grants, fundations, etc)

Thanks for your inputs guys...

So it is not wise to accept an offer of J1 research if we are planning to apply for 2009 match residency..

but what if can get a waiver on J1 research visa?
Do you have nay idea how difficult is it to get a waiver on J1 research?
