Pre-Interview steps, Albania

Jun 14th 2014
Hello
I am from Albania and my interview date is August 7th.

Preparing for the interview - Translation

Jun 14th 2014
Hi all, I'm currently working on, to have my supporting documents translated, since most of them are not issued in English. My interview takes place in London however most of my documents will be likely translated in my country of origin (which is not UK) so would US embassy in UK (or any other country for that matter) accept documents signed off by certified translator from abroad, or should I rather use local certified translator? The latter option is not really convenient I'm not even sure...

Successful interview- 3 months AP- Happy ending :D.

Jun 13th 2014
Hello everyone, i hope everyone is doing well. Today after 3 months of stressful AP, i got my visa.

On 13 march 2014 had my interview in Tirana(Albania), to be honest i never thought the interview was going to be so simple.
I was first called to the first window to show my affidavit of supporter + medical documents.
Than i was told to pay the fee (330$) to the next window.
I waited about 30-40 mins and got called again for the fingerprints. And after 20 mins i was called to do the...

Up coming May month visa bulletin.

Jun 13th 2014
Hi forum mates
After a deep look into the previouse VB(april) I decided to reajust my predictions!
I do now believe that for AF region will get a subtencial increase in the cutoff! Ethiopia hitting their limit because of lack of candidates I believe ! And nigeria has moved with 2k which I think will give the rest of AF a chance to move faster like said...
On the other hand EU will slow down I think !!!! May be not the following month VB but perhaps in the next one !

Note: its just an...

CP in Guangzhou and CGI Stanley????

Jun 13th 2014
Well preparing for cp in Guangzhou.

Trying to figure out how to pay. Seems they have outsourced some work to a company called CGI Stankey, who are supposed to bill me for the DV and return my passport. Strangely enough via a bank branch. So in order to proceeded I have to open a profile at their website, which is super slow so I could not move on to the part where I decide at which Citic Bank I will collect my passport. Called the helpline. They said that I could not proceed with opening my...

DV- 2015EU French winners are here

Jun 13th 2014
How many French selected People for the dv2015 lottery are there? Can we compare our cases and questions?
My spouse had been selected with à rather big case number 2015EU434xxx but we cross the fingers. Apprentis 860 GC will be allowed to French, including familles. And 2015 seems to be the year of Europe. So we hope to get our chance.
But are we the only ones froggies on this site?

I left the USA via a land border.. do they know I left?

Jun 13th 2014
Since Zuroma is asking questions I will too

Pretty much what the title says. I was filling in my DS-260 and noticed my last exit from the USA was via a remote land border into Canada and I haven't been into the USA since. The Canadian border post checked my passport as I was leaving. Does the USA know I left? I'm pretty sure they do however like everyone else I like a little bit of reassurance. I'm guessing the Canadians and Americans link their computer systems to notify each other?

A story of birth dates on forms

Jun 13th 2014
Now that my DS-260 has been submitted, I sit around bored thinking about any other questions I can post to the board here to get your guys' feedback on.

Story time:

Once upon a time in the 1930s when the hero's father was born in a little town in India... they use to use the date of baptism for Catholics as their birth date (and not their physical birth date).

When Junior Zuroma (me) embarked, wide-eyed and with more hair, to the US on a L1 visa in 2000, he remembers calling his mother and...

DS-260 Current / Previous Employment questions

Jun 13th 2014
I'm just fiddling around with my DS-260 and have a question for the wise people here.

There is a section "Present Work/Education/Training Information" where I've put my current employer with address. The next section is "Previous Work/Education/Training Information"

It says "Provide the following information on all of your employers from the last ten years, starting with the most recent employer."

Do I need to put my current employer details in this list as well?

The odd thing to me is,...

Any experience of selectee and beneficiary entering US separately?

Jun 13th 2014
Hi,
I, the selectee, and my wife, the beneficiary, are thinking to entry US separately after interview.
(My number is current on Aug, but the interview is scheduled on July!! I have no idea about this.)

Is anybody here having this experience? Could you please share how does the process go?
Will we get two separate packages after the interview? And then when I enter US, I just need to show my package to the TSA officer; and same for my wife. Is this right? I just want to know the procedure...
