Hi I would like to start this thread for all EU winners in the 30 thousand cohort. It's our time from May and onwards. Let's share our experience and support each other in these crucial months. Will we all make it through the eye? Will the visa bulletin clear the 30 thousand bracket an reach the cohort anxiously waiting in the next bracket 40,000 to 49,999?

It's been a long wait 30K cohort but now we are up. Will June and July clear us all or is August needed too. Will the process end for us...

Leave the US while waiting for the green card

May 22nd 2015
I am a DV lottery 2015 winner. I would like to enter the US, get my visa stamped, rent a place to receive my green card, return to my country, stay at my current work for another 4 months, and then move finally to the US.
When I enter the US the second time (4 months after first entry) will I have any problems entering without the green card?

Reopen DS-260 more than 1 time

Is there any issues with requesting for a second reopening of ds-260? I missed some critical information which I missed during my first reopening of the form. Does this raise any red flags or delays the selection?

When to file 260 to delay interview.

May 20th 2015
Hi guys. Lets share some tips & tricks.

My case number is AS000055xx.
When should I submit my Ds-260 in order to get a visa interview in April or May 2015.
(Reason for this is, I can not travel to US before October, 2015 - job contract issues. For example, if I get a Visa in February, I have to travel within 6 months, which is August - not suitable for me).
So, here is my estimation: If I submit my DS-260 on January 1st. It will take minimum 4-8 weeks to get fully processed. Lets say it gets...

I made a mistake in DS-260

May 19th 2015
Hi all, I have a problem which is confusing:

in fact, i have realized that i did a mistake in the DS-260 with one of the middle names !!!!

1- it's bit strange as we are using a "long Name system" in Egypt which means that they write (full 5 names) in the official documents !
2- when i filled up the DV entry, i put my Surname, Given name , As i remember, when i entered the DS-260 form for the first time, it was already written in the form as per the DV-entry
3-how can i correct that ? ( i...

Hi Sm1smom,
DS-260 form asks for a "Permanent Address in US".
Is this asking my future permanent address in the US ?

There are 1-2 my distantly known persons in US. But they hesitate to share their address.
What I should be doing in this case ?

Please guide me.
