In all likelihood, you will need to contact your home country’s embassy in the US and ask them to prepare a No Objection Statement on your behalf. Some countries, however, have designated certain domestic ministries to issue No Objection Statements. Check with your home country to make sure. In all likelihood, however, you will be referred to your home country’s embassy (not a local consulate).
Dealing With Your Home Country
Your home country has established its own procedures for issuing a No Objection Statement, and these procedures vary from country to country. There is no guarantee that your government will agree to issue a statement at all. Suppose, for example, that you received graduate medical training in the US and there is a shortage of doctors in your country. In that case, your government may insist that you return home.
Forwarding the No Objection Statement to the US Government
If your request for a No Objection Statement is approved by your embassy, it will submit the No Objection Statement Directly to the US State Department Waiver Review Division. You don’t need to do this yourself.
If your country relies on a domestic ministry to issue No Objection Statements, the ministry will send the statement to the U.S. Chief of Mission, Consular Section, at the US embassy in your home country’s capital. The U.S. embassy will then forward the No Objection Statement to the US State Department Waiver Review Division, and the Waiver Review Division will then forward it to the USCIS for a final decision.
