The American Verificantion System

Jun 25th 2014
Congratulations to all who have won the DV-2015. Now that you have won the lottery it is not over yet, as you have to undergo verifications and you need to pass in it. If you failed in the verification process you won’t get the green card even if you are a winner.

I would tell you what the American verification process is.

First of all it would be done in coordination with the local staff at the American Embassy in your home country. The white American guys are heavily dependent on the local...

For an interview (bring a copy of every of the following document):

Last Tax Return required in I-134 if not self-employed?

Jun 22nd 2014
I was hoping that there are enough members of this forum that have applied with an I-134 with their DV to help answer this question for me...

The instructions for the I-134 clearly state on page 1
