DV-2015 changing DS-260 from AOS to CP

Oct 2nd 2014
Dear community,

I was blessed to be selected for DV-2015, although my cut-off number is not so low (EU00032XXX).
I completed my DS-260 the day of its availability (May 19th?), and originally asked for an interview at USCIS (Adjustment of Status) since I am physically in the US. However I wanted to change it to Consular Processing.

Since the DS-260 is locked, I sent an email to KCC to explain the change I would like to make, and they answered "we changed your interview from AOS to CP"....

DV2015 Successful Interview

Oct 2nd 2014
Glad that's over! Had a successful interview in Montreal this morning. When I return home if anyone wants a more detailed description I can write one. But the highlights are (some of these only apply to the Montreal US consulate):

- Someone called me yesterday from the Consulate asking for my DS-260 Confirmation barcode number. Was't expecting that since no one on the boards had mentioned it. I had to hurry back to my hotel room and send them an email with it. Maybe keep a copy of the number...

Final DV2014 CEAC Data

Sep 30th 2014
OK - once again I would like to thank and recognize Rafikbo76 for his efforts and generosity in making the CEAC script available for us to use. It has been very useful in watching the progress of the DV process through these data extracts and hopefully the process will be less mysterious because of this. Well done Rafik!


Here is the "final" DV2014 data file. In theory there could be some updates to the CEAC data in the next day or two - but pretty much this is our ending position. As you can...

DV-2015 Photo Help!

Sep 29th 2014
Hello,
I will apply DV2015 for my cousin and her family. she gave me photos but her parents photos 952x1152 and when I resize to 600x600 they stretch. So I made some modification but the head is very big and I thought a way like photo example.

Is this photo eligible?

NOTE: I don't want to show the face so please do not laugh.

Save it on your PC and you will understand what I'm talking about.

I hope you get the point.

After the interview

Sep 29th 2014
Hi!

My interview is going to be held on a different city (i.e. Frankfurt circa. 3 hrs by train) from the one I reside in. Do I need to get a stamped envelope so that they can send me back the passport or do I have to be there in person when the document is ready?

I'd appreciate a quick response as my interview is on the 1st of October and I am kind of freaking out.

Thanks!

DV 2016 - Application Form questions

Sep 27th 2014
Hi folks, i just need to ask something regarding the name field on the application form for DV 2016.
So my name is :

So you are moving to the USA...

This country is the consumerism center of the world. When you get here, don't try and fit in 100% (i.e. don't become a member of the rat race). Keep your values, live simply, and do something good for others every day....

DV LOTTERY

Sep 26th 2014
Hello,
I am going to be applying for the DV lottery this year but the country in which I was born is not eligible. I will be using the 'chargeability' onto the country that my parents were born because they are from a country that IS eligible.
However, if I am selected for an interview I will need to provide evidence that both my parents were born in another country BUT my parents don't have their birth certificate anymore...will I be allowed to use their passports as proof that they were born...

New Immigrant - Taxes, Health Insurance & SSS?

Sep 26th 2014
Hi all,

So I've been in the US since July 15th now and while I've managed to sort out most things myself I have 3 questions remaining (for now):

- I've tried registering for SSS (Selective Service System - yes I am within the age range so have to register) online not long after my arrival but was unable to due to my SS Number not being in their database yet, so I left it out thinking it needs to get processed or something, long story short I forgot about it until now, tried online again and...

Australian wanting to immigrate to the USA

Sep 25th 2014
Hi all,

My name is Matthew. I am a 20 year old Australian who wishes to live and work in the USA because I love that country.

I am looking for information from anyone who can give me advice from their own experience or their own knowledge on how a young Aussie can immigrate to the USA.

Since DV 2014, each year I enter the Diversity Visa Lottery.

I am aware of the E-3 visa which is for Australians, however from my own research I am unable to confirm whether or not I am eligible for this...
