My father applied for DV2014 and he won. Case Number EU29xxx. I believe in May I will have interview.
But when my father made the application for DV-2014 (October 2012) I was 20 years old, and when I checked the status on 1st May 2013 I still was 20 years old. Now I'm 21. My birthday is on 16th July 1992. Do I have chances to go to USA with my family or not?
I have read that I can go with them but when I spoke with an advocate in my country (Albania) he said that I can't go with them. Please help.
EUROPE 30,700 Except: Uzbekistan 16,350
NORTH AMERICA (BAHAMAS) 15
and the CARIBBEAN 1,325
These two months are decisive in the performance of VB...Impatience ia growing... What do you thing?
Good to be back. It's been 4 years since I got my GC and visted this website. Therefore, I am not too familiar with the latest rules and procedures for obtaining a GC.
The reason I am posting this question is that my friend received a DV and is asking me to pay a visa fee $165 per person. I believe this must be something new, because we did not pay it back in 2010?
Does he have to make that payment before coming or is there an exception for some who don't have a credit card and can pay after they arrive here in the US?
When was this fee introduced?
Please help us as I need to make the decision of how to help him.
And they will him back as soon they receive his paper!!!!!!!!!!
is that normal has anyone been in such problem ??? help guys plz
Our child has born after the visa issuance of parents and we both me, my wife and my 3 month old baby have came to the US 2 weeks before with TRANSPORTATION LETTER of my baby. In port of entry the Homeland security officials stamp temporary i-551 on my baby's passport and they request a photographs of my baby and they attached the photograph on the specific form (I don't know the form name). last week i have gone to the social security office to apply our social security card and everything went smoothly but finally officer said both me and my wife's social security card process is ok but our baby's card can not process at the moment because of unavailability of "A number" which printed on the visa(My baby don't have a visa) so my question is.....will they send my baby's green card? and is the green card contain the A number???
thanks in advance for your replies
I need your advice. Here is what happened: When I sent my DS230 forms to the KCC back in May 2013, on the education question, I listed my Bachelor degree and my High school.
In reality I went to school X from 1 grade to 8th grade and then transferred to a college which also gives high school diploma. So I attended that college for my 9th and 10th grade and graduated with my high school diploma.
So in my DS230 form I only entered that college where I received my high school diploma. In other words I did not include my school X which I attended from1st grade till 8th grade. The reason I did not include school X is because I thought I did not have any record of that transfer. Which happened almost 18 years ago.
But recently I have received an email from the Embassy where I will be interviewed. On the email they've sent a check list of documents to bring to the interview. One of the check list item is to bring high school graduation picture or like a year book type of picture. So I went to my parents place to searched for my graduation picture and surprisingly I found my high school graduation picture along with a Basic education certificate from 1st grade to 8th grade and also a graduation picture for my 8th grade.
So my question is this: Since I found my 8th grade graduation picture and basic education certificate, should I update these information in my DS230 form and take it to the interview which is at end of this month?
and if they ask me why I did not include this information in the first place, how should I explain this mistake? Is this a mistake that could harm my chances of getting a visa?
Thank you all for your advice and sorry for the long explanation.
I am a 2014 selected from Asia with a high case number, I don't think that my case number will be in the cut off list.
I notice from previews years that in the last few month there will be in the visa bulletin the word "current" instead of a cut off number,what that exactly mean, does it mean that any one with any number has the chance to have an interview? or no one with a higher number than the last one can apply?
I am currently in the US finish master degree and currently under TPS status.
Please Help, thanks
my situation is the following:
My wife won in the DV green card.
my wife hold - DV1
I have - DV2
my son has - DV3
all green cards were issue on 09/23/2013
on October 2nd 2013 , we left the US , it was our 1st visit , means that this was the the visit that the green cards were issues.
since October 2nd 2013 we are all outside the US.
according to the 6 months rule , we must enter the US until April 1st 2014 , Is it correct ?
my question is , because I hold DV2 green card , what will happen if on April 1st 2014 I will enter the US without my wife ? Will I be approved to enter the US without my wife ? (again , the green cards plastic already issued and we are holding the card in our hands).
my next question , in case me and my wife only visit together the US on April 1st 2014 , and my son will not come with us (we are talking about baby , 11 months). what will happen on the next visit when we will come all together to the US (I expect that the next visit after April 1st 2014 will be on October 1st 2014) ?
another question is , what will happen if my son (again , we are talking about little baby right now , 11 months) will not visit the US for more than 1 year ? Are the rules restricted also for little baby ?
thanks in advanced for the assistance.
I'll get on here when I can from a Starbucks but I'm not working until net week so until then I will be laying low....
So for example, wherever there is a number, the back shows the translation of the titles in bold.
Other the the numbered titles, there is one stamp with the name of my town and the title of the person that signed the form. Such information is not translated.
Is the translation of the numbered titles in bold on the back going to be sufficient?
By the way when I send the mail, kcc confirmed receiving it nd said it will be added into my files.
Vladek howzit bro got some questions for u how can I get in contact with u ?
Thank you in advance.
Despite having the assistance of an apparent expert my application has been rejected twice: the first time because the lawyer failed to tick a particular box and the second time (today) for reasons I do not know - rejection notice says 'See Form M-180' - I can't even find anywhere on the internet what that document is.
I have a number of concerns:
- What is Form M-180?
- I don't know why it took my lawyer so long to submit the application. My number became active in December but after all the back/forth between myself and the lawyer's office (which included them having to correct a number of errors in the initial draft of the application), the submission did not occur until early February.
- The application has now been rejected twice by USCIS
- I am worried this lawyer does not know what she is doing
- I am worried I have wasted MONTHS of valuable time and I live in NY and have heard that it takes MONTHS to obtain an interview.
ANY ADVICE or SUGGESTIONS?
Just like a month ago, CEAC website was overloaded by my 8 hours runing script, but fortunatly it handle this huge workload very well, just like my Internet connection witch by miracle was too good during that time.
The data include a comparison tab with DV-2013 till january CUT-OFF, Unfortunatly DV-2013 DATA per 05-27-2013 was not accurate (Sloner mention that before) so I have to include 09-30-2013 whenever is possible.
here is the link
Remember the rule, no one should say I can't be current by the end of the year, otherwise i will manipulate the data ;)
