Green Card Lottery - Live Discussions from our Forums
1. What is the proper process? Do I just email KCC? Do I have to now send the DSP230?
2. Has anyone done it this year? How long did it take? Did you have any problems?
My wife(principle applicant) has signature in native language in her passport. But Once coming to US, she has been using English signature in all the documents including Driver's License. When sending forms to KCC, she has used English signature. Now will it be a problem during interview since signature in passport and forms does not match? If so, how can it be corrected? The only way I can think is making a new passport and sign that in English. Your suggestion is highly appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance.
I have a quick query regarding passports eligibility. Basically we have completed our green card interview in December and the embassy are waiting on a copy of my babys passport which has just been born last week.
We are Irish citizens living in Spain where the baby was born and basically to obtain an Irish passport it can take 12 weeks where as we can obtain a Spanish one for the baby in one day.
My main point is that myself and my wife have applied through our Irish passports and would need to add the baby on with a Spanish passport, does anyone see why this would be a problem? We need to be in the US before the 8th of June as this is when our medicals run out, therefore realistically we need to have everything completed before the end of April/Middle of May at the latest.
Im thinking that our country of changeability was Ireland, and with the baby having a Spanish passport, where would she be charged to?

I need you assistance about Medical Exam. On "INSTRUCTIONS FOR MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS IV/DV/K-1" form, on the first question is... :
"Illness or injury requiring hospitalization (including psychiatric)"
I have been in hospital many times from high temperature, nothing serious, and I stopped going like 10 years ago, and one time when I injured my eye 9 years ago but it is completely healed, also my brother has been in hospital like 10 years ago from high temperature.
My father says that we should tick NO because there were not serious problems and they were long gone.
Should I tick Yes or No on the form?
Also, does the KCC usually send back a confirmation when you apply after the first notification?
I'm from Asia (not Nepal or Iran). I and my family lived in Korea for 6 years then went back to my country on Oct 2013. Just before we leave we both obtained police certificate from korean police. But my CN is quite high (AS 112xx), so still I haven't yet interview now. If I become current in July or August, do we need to reissue police certificate? Especially my wife went back to Korea to finish her study there, will be back for interview.
I want to know which Vaccination required for the medical test specially form UAE.
Would it be a problem for refusal of a Student visa (F1), if my parents live in the US after winning the DV lottery as LPR?
I am a 23 year old male, freshly out of university (I graduated last year). I've been perusing the forums and time after time I've seen in threads many people asking the question concerning having a bank statement to present to the CO just in case it's necessary in an interview. Also, there has been mention of a "safe" minimum amount of money to have in your bank account that people generally try not to go under, for fear of being denied a visa.
I for one by the time of my interview can not amass that amount of cash in 2 months as I am only employed in an internship capacity right now. My parents are very much willing to facilitate my move to the US granted a successful interview but can only provide maybe half of the "threshold" amount. I do have family living in the US currently who are ready and willing to provide an I-134, even though I will be living on my own.
My question is, as a fresh university graduate who by the time of my interview will have 'some' money but definitely not all the money to make up 10K. Should an affidavit of support and probably half to three quarters of the "threshold" amount be enough financial proof?
What recommendations do you have in terms of finances for someone at a young age looking to make this move?
Thank you :)
Just one week to my interview i wonder if the family name of my mother mentioned at the forms is different from birth certificate can cause problems (and a little others mistake) and if it's possible to provide a new form on the day of the interview without i turn into PA?
I, my wife and my son won a GC through lottery. Last summer I entered the USA and we got our greencards. However, in order to live there I have to find a job, and I can not leave my current job for good, so
1- I only can go to the US one month per year for looking for job, obtaining a job abroad is almost impossible. This summer I do not want to take my 4 years old son with me, so I and my wife will travel. Can this be a problem for him or for us for entry?
2- We traveled last year and we will travel again this summer and I was not aware of re-entry permit, will it cause a problem?
3- I am not working in the US, shall I declare any tax document?
I am confused with too many topics,
Any help is appreciated.
Anybody knows the Green card validity for 5 years or 10 upon 1st arrival of DV winner.?
