DV lottery winners sought- BBC Radio report lottery winners' experiences

Jun 15th 2014
Hi,


I'm a BBC journalist based in London- and I'm really keen to get in touch with people on here who have won the DV lottery, and are waiting to find out if they will get a green card.

We are planning a short radio documentary about people's experience of winning the DV lottery and going through the DV process.

We are really interested to talk to people who have won the lottery, and are still waiting to see if they will be selected for a green card.

If that is your situation, and you...

University abroad and maintaining PRS

Jun 14th 2014
Hello.

I'm a DV2014 winner that was issued an immigrant visa that expires on September 17. I was normally planning to move by then, but I failed to pass all my remaining university courses and will need to study for another year. Therefore I intend to make entry in early July and travel back out of US before September after receiving my green card, in order to complete my study.

This process will take about 10 months, so I won't be able to re-enter the US for good until July 2015. My question...

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...

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 !

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.

Called the helpline. They said that I could not proceed with opening my...
