DV2015 and marriage challenge

Aug 24th 2014
Hello

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...

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

Aug 24th 2014
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...

Should I change my DS260?

Aug 24th 2014
Hey everyone,

When I filled out the DS260 I was working as an international business consultant in Dubai but since I was here on a tourist visa, it was off the books as if I was still living back home in Europe. So I wrote down "housewife" on occupation (my husband is a resident and works here).

I'm now working full time as a marketing manager so I have an employment contract and company sponsored visa. Should I go through the hassle of changing the DS260 or should I just wait and correct the...

Some advice about money in the USA for new immigrants

Aug 22nd 2014
In reading some of the African threads I am getting the impression that some will come (from Africa and elsewhere) to the US without being properly prepared financially. I wanted to pass on some advice to those that may be coming on a limited/small budget.

1. First of all, try and have a realistic plan about how you will support yourself here. Find out the cost of living in the area you are moving to and work out how long you can support yourself without a job. It might take several weeks...

Visa Interview Questions

Aug 22nd 2014
Hey guys!

I have my visa interview scheduled on October 1st. I was just curious about what kind of questions to expect.

Also, I had a question regarding finances. As a student, I don't have a lot of savings (~3000 Dollars). However, my father is also a US Permanent Resident who has a stable job in the US. Do you think his support letter is sufficient or do they expect me to have some savings?

I am also about to finish my PhD by mid next year. I guess it is kind of implied that I should not...

Frankfurt Consulate

Aug 21st 2014
Does anyone know how to pay the DV visa fee in Frankfurt? The website suggests that you can pay that on the day : http://germany.usemb...pplication-fee/

However, the DV letter seemed to suggest that the visa fee must be paid in full before the interview. To add to that, I signed up for the CGI Stanley website and the website does have option for the DV1 feel. I am utterly confused and would appreciate any info.



Cheers!

Activate GC in U.S. territories (South Pacific)

Aug 20th 2014
Hi everybody !

Since my husband and I got have been successful to the interview and got our green card approval few days ago, we are wondering if we really need to travel to US for activating the green card.
For example, can we activate the green card by travelling to Guam or Marshall Islands, which are U.S. territories in South Pacific ? What about Hawaii ? As we currently live in New Caledonia, it is much closer than main territories in US !

I can't find any information on internet... so...

Mapping migration in the US

Interesting chart from the NYT.
Maps states by migration - % of people living there who were born there, from another region in the US, or immigrated.

Entry into USA after getting VISA (DV Lottery)

Aug 16th 2014
Hi All

i have been successful in passing my interview and have been awarded the visa for green card. It expires by 14/02/2014 however for the 1st entry i intend to go to USA and get my passsport stamped and return within 2-3 weeks maximum. I may not receive the actual physical green card within this timeframe.

Thus will that be a problem when i wish to travel to USA again? Do i need to apply for something then?

Hi All. Just wanted to share my DV2014 lottery experience. It has been quite a ride! Applying, waiting for the results and then spending another 15 months wondering if my number will ever get current, despite history laughing in my face and saying: “ NO WAY DUDE! FORGET IT!”

First of all, huge thanks to the forum CREW!
