Green Card Lottery - Live Discussions from our Forums
About a month ago I was interviewed and approved for a VISA (DV).
My IV VISA will expire on January which means I should enter the US before then.
I cannot stay in the USA for more than one month, I have to come back to work in my home country (I’m still under a contract).
I remember I read somewhere that the GC will arrive only after 6 weeks starting from the time of arrival to the US. Is it true? Do I have to wait for it? I got family which can send it to me by mail.
I have also...

I received notification on 1st May, 2014, for selection of further processing DV-2015, though, misunderstood the need to complete DS-260 immigration Visa and Alien Application process, which I have now done and sent on 31st Aug 2014. My question - is there something more I need to do? As I keep reading about how others are completing and sending forms and photographs to KCC. (But, for 21015 is that also necessary, I am a...

DVs are apportioned among six geographic regions using regional limits determined by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) according to a formula specified in Section 203(c) of...
Important Notice for DV2014 Applicants
At the very end of September 2012 I decided to sign up for the “green card” lottery, I said to myself why not, honestly not hoping for much, who would just give away a green card I was thinking.
*Note to first timers- signing up to the lottery is free of charge, and very simple all you need is 1 scanned 5x5 passport pictures and some very basic information. DO NOT PAY any fee, the registration is completely free.
I didn’t think too much about the...

Interview experience johannesburg
I want to check \ask people how been interviewed before in. Abu Dhabi embassy if they been asked for the AOS 134 form or not
I'm a DV 2014 winner and my interview is just around the corner. I'll most likely go to the interview with my bank statement that is a little short of 10k, which comes from many sources (and efforts) such as selling my car and contributions from my parents and relatives. I'm certain I'll be asked for a financial proof as I live in a developing country and have no employment history. I will not be able to prove that I have huge amount of cash sitting in my account for a long time, this...

Help - DV LOTTERY AND FORM I-797C
Second letter - not received
Ds 260 submission - May 30
My question is about the on-line DV-2013 application form. More precisely, I forgot to write my middle name in application.
For example: (This is not my real personal data)
James David Smith (in a passport)
James Smith (in this way, I wrote in form without a middle name )
And a question is, it may be an issue at the interview. ( Of course if my entry will be selected and I will be invited to interview in embassy)
My wife was selected for DVEU201500000xxx, but we have a problem and we want to get some advises from you her in the forum.
Back in the summer 2013 we got married in United States. We have much of our family there, and combined that with a big family vacation that was a good choice for us. When we came back to our home country we sent the marrige documentation to the goverment in our home country, and we also joined the lottery in october 2013 as married.
After a few weeks I talked...
DV2015 and marriage challenge
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...
Won DV, have dual nationality, was born in a non eligible country, also my parents.
