Urget Q about Country of eligibility

Mar 1st 2015
Hi folks.....how are you all ...miss you all.

I have a q about country of chargeability (eligibility) that I have been asked by some folks..

if a person was born in a country from AF lets say Ghana, and he holds the Ghana nationality, and the same applies to his spouse and his parents. He lives and works in Saudia Arabia, and he claimed his country of eligibility as Saudia Arabia....and he got an 2015 AS number....so what is his situation do you think???

Thanks a lot

I know someone posted a similar ranking not long ago but I can't find it, so sorry for a new thread rather than updating an existing one.

Same type of conclusion, IT/engineering etc and health related positions are hot.

For those that just received their 2NL - submission date survey

Feb 25th 2015
Lots of people are keen to see whether the DS260 processing has sped up yet. So far they have gone "month for month" on when the DS260 was submitted. It would be helpful to gather some info of the DS260 submission date in the following format. This first one is a real one so I am particularly keen to see cases like this that have been current for a while but only submitted "late". These are the type of cases that will be most telling.

So - if you just received your 2NL - please reply to this...

Entering DV Lottery & Immigrant intent question

Feb 24th 2015
Hello everyone,

Does entering electronic DV Lottery form count as immigrant intent or not?

I have read in many different places that winning a lottery does count as an immigrant intent, but my question is about entering not winning.

Does anyone know someone who had troubles getting non-immigrant visa (B1/B2 - guest visa) after entering electronic DV lottery form?

It looks like entering the old DV lottery (paper - not electronic) couldn't count as an immigrant intent since they just didn't...

Feb 19th 2015
are we gonna all make it ? given that this year's last cut-off number for asia is merely 13,350, the prior year it maxed out at 9,000-ish and went current the following month, my CN is 13,6,xx had i been selected for DV2014 i would be crying on the corner now for missing out just 200-ish

Residence vs. Domicile in the US

Feb 18th 2015
Hi guys,

I am wondering if someone of you could enlighten me about the difference between "domicile" and "residence" in the US (if such a distinction actually exists!).

If I am understanding it correctly, domicile is more a permanent place where one lives, while residence is more a temporary place. Is it right?
In particular, is residence or domicile that is usually reported in legal documents?

A related question regards immigration with DV visa. Do I need to "move" residence or domicile in...
