Question about J1 212(e)


I went on an one year international exchange program to the US in August 2019, with a J-1 visa. Due to COVID travel restrictions, I was only able to get back home in July 2020.

Since I’m still in college, I was wondering about applying for a Work and Travel program. However, my J-1 was subject to the 212(e) rule, two years of residence in home country.

Does that mean I can’t apply for another J-1 visa until that time is fulfilled? Even if it’s a non-immigrant temporary visa. Plus, last time I went to study and now I’d work during my summer vacation…

Thank you!
