The 'No Obligation to Return to India Certificate (NORI) Chennai is required for those Indian nationals who have gone to the United States of America holding a J-1 VISA for this specific reason:

  1. The candidate needs to apply legitimately through the concerned Embassy of India or the Indian Consulate General in the USA or Canada.

For enabling the Embassy for issuing a waiver for immigration, the applicant must obtain clearance from the authorities in India.
