Medical in London today

May 23rd 2017
Hi all,

My wife and I had our medical in London today, all went well however because my wife was a bit nervous the doctor thought she had signs of a heart murmur. We have been asked to verify this with our GP at home, our interview at the Embassy is 2 weeks tomorrow, do you know what happens if we don't have the medical issue resolved by then?

Thanks,

Chris

Affidavit of support - When, where, and why?

May 22nd 2017
Pretty much what the title says. Are these requested from all people in certain countries? I remember hearing about it and thinking I would need to present one, yet it was not one of documents required at the time of the interview. What if the interviewer had felt that I do not have the means to sustain myself financially in the US? I don't believe he could've scheduled another interview to get him a document that was not required initially.

Do you know what policies govern this?

Question on financial aid to the usa ?

May 20th 2017
Hi all,
Will the winners of the lottery have the right to ask for help for food or other help?
I think that in the DS 260 they say that it is forbidden to benificate social aids. is it true ?
If yes , will this pose a problem with obtaining citizenship?

Finding a job as an engineer before moving

May 19th 2017
Hi there! I am from Turkey and got selected on DV2018, my case number is 2018EU00022XXX. Looking at the historical visa bulletin numbers I believe my visa interview is going to be in next spring, hopefully (fingers crossed!!) Although I have plenty of time, I can't help myself thinking about making plans regarding living in the USA, if I get permanent residency.

So my biggest concern is landing a job in the US after becoming an LPR. It has always boggled my mind how people sell their house,...

2018 Winner - Miss to list a newborn in DV entry

May 17th 2017
Our daughter was just born 1-2 weeks ahead the deadline of submitting DV entry. We submitted the DV entry in the last date in Y2017. We had no way to obtain the picture of my daughter by that time since she was in the hospital for early born infant issue. Additionally, my daughter was not name until late December according to the local law.

The evidence can be provided for review if needed.

Are we disqualified because of missing to include my daughter in the first place? Or, can we...

DV 2017 - London interview & medical

May 11th 2017
Hi folks,

We were selected as Northern Ireland applicants and being part of the UK we must travel to London for our interview and medical, my wife is a teacher so her getting off work during term time is extremely difficult. Do you know if it is possible to do the medical after the interview?

Just suggesting we could fly over and make one trip to London do us.

Thanks!

Duplicated application for DV lottery from winner's spouse

May 10th 2017
Hello everyone.
Me and my husband have applied for DV-2018. My husband has won. While discussing possible outcomes of interview, he mentioned that he'd heard about a guy who was refused with immigration visa because his spouse has accidentally applied for DV twice that year. Unfortunately I have a similar situation. About 8 years ago I paid a company for 10 years of automatic DV lottery application. I sent my photo only once, but the company kept sending my application for some years....
