Error in country of eligibility

Aug 20th 2015

So, after filling the DS 260 out and sending it I started to visit different forums and found out that I made a mistake when selecting the country of eligibility. I was born in Russia, but at age of 14 I moved to Sweden. I have Swedish citizenship and have not been visiting Russia since I left. I also hold the Russian citizenship but my passport has expired many years ago. I do not plan to go back to Russia and I do not relate to Russia.
So when I entered the DV I put Sweden as I though it...

DV Lottery when adopted

Aug 17th 2015

I have a question that I can't seem to get any clear answer for anywhere and it makes me rather nervous, seeing as the DV2017 is coming closer.

I wish to take part this year, but the fact is that I'm adopted from a country that's not eligible to take part (Colombia).

Though I was adopted at the age of 3 months by a danish couple. Both are born in Denmark, citizens and have lived here their entire lives, just like I have.

I have heard I can claim chargeability to my parents country and...

LND Embassy Interview Experience

Aug 10th 2015
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!

Winning DV lottery with Dual Eligible Citizenship

Aug 6th 2015
I applied to the Dv-2012 Lottery with Spain as the eligible country, since my father was born there and since I hold an Spanish passport. I won the lottery but now I am concerned since I also hold a Venezuelan Passport because I was born in Venezuela. Both countries are eligible for the DV Lottery. Will this situation disqualify me during the interview process to get my inmigrant visa?
