Applying for H4 visa getting interview waiver because of previous J1

Hello everyone,

I’m applying for an H4 visa slot and I had a J1 visa before but that has expired. After answering the interview waiver questions, it seems like I’m eligible for the interview waiver and it’s giving me the option of drop-box.

My question is am I eligible for the interview waiver even though I don’t have the same visa type before?

Thank you in advance.

If the system approved IW, that means you are good. Why do you have doubts?
Note that IW is at discretion of the consular officer so even if you qualify they may call your for an interview.
