The "been there done that" thread: life in the US after DV

Feb 14th 2017
Maybe mods can make this sticky. I think it'll be worthwhile- it's always interesting to see the progress other people have made when you are on a similar path. The idea is to add links to blogs etc here rather than fill this thread with posts. The ones below are the ones I am aware of/can remember ... Apologies if I forgot anyone but please add on.

Applied for dv-2018 while staying in USA, but now in Saudi Arabia

Feb 11th 2017
Hi all,
This is my first time to apply for diversity visa 2018. During the application of diversity visa I was in California because I was completing my masters in electrical engineering. So in my dv form I mentioned I was in US and gave a US address as present address. But now due to some issues I had to leave US after completing my masters and come back to my home country Saudi Arabia in January 2017. My question here is since I have mentioned in the Dv form the current address as the...

RAISE Act - Immigration Reform

Feb 8th 2017
Has anyone looked into this Raise (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment) Act? It seeks to eliminate the diversity visa program entirely.

What stage is the bill in now? What is the likelihood of it passing? I don't know enough about US law to understand the process of a bill passing? Would be great if someone could explain.

Copy of the bill can be found here:

Won DV, have dual nationality, was born in a non eligible country, also my parents.

Feb 3rd 2017
Hi,
I won the DV lottery, using a Spanish passport, got the nationality through my grandparents (Civil War Refugees). I did all the process, had the medical exam, fingerprints, paid for everything, and now it appears it is going to be denied (at the time of the interview) because my parents were also born in a non eligible country and the Spanish citizenship was obtained through my grandparents.

Is this right? Is there anything I can do? - They told me to wait for further instructions...

I-94 and SSN timeline for DV2017

Jan 31st 2017
Hello Everyone,
This is my first post, so please forgive me if I made any mistakes in posting these questions. I and my family got our visas last December and we arrived at JFK airport on Sunday evening. We went to Social Security Administration today to see if we can apply for SSN card, but the representative at the SSA office in the state of Maryland told us that we need to wait at least 10 days before we could apply for SSN. She also advised us to print out our I-94 record. We checked the...

Executive Order: Considerations for Green Card Holders from directly affected Countries

Jan 28th 2017
"We are advising our clients from those seven countries who have green cards or any type of H-1B visa not to travel outside the U.S." said Ava Benach, a partner at immigration law firm Benach Collopy LLP, while noting that the order takes effect immediately.

“No one is really sure whether a green card holder from these seven countries can return to the U.S. now. It’s fairly clear that an H-1B visa holder can’t," Benach said. The H-1B lets U.S. companies employ graduate-level workers from...

Tracking GC delivery via USCIS ELIS

Jan 24th 2017
Hi folks,

I have successfully moved to southwest Florida about a month ago and I'm waiting to receive the plastic Green Card in mail. I was wondering if the USCIS ELIS system where as folks remember had to pay your Immigrant Fee after you've received your visa but before you moved the US, can be used to track progress on delivery of your plastic card. My status as well as all of my family members is currently "In Process". Those of you who have already received your cards in mail, can you...
