The "been there done that" thread: life in the US after DV

Jun 18th 2016
Maybe mods can make this sticky. I think it'll be worthwhile- it's always interesting to see the progress other people have made when you are on a similar path. The idea is to add links to blogs etc here rather than fill this thread with posts. The ones below are the ones I am aware of/can remember ... Apologies if I forgot anyone but please add on.

how to calculate the number of 50,000 winners

DV 2016 Administrative Processing Cases

Jun 17th 2016
Being put under AP is definitely no fun! Unfortunately, some cases will end up under AP regardless of how well prepared an applicant was/is, or the fact that the CO says congratulations and issues an approval notice following the interview.

This Thread is intended for those under AP to share their stories, and encourage one another; or get encouragement from other forum members as they wait to complete the process. Attached are links to some past AP Threads which some of you may find...

After DS-260?

Jun 15th 2016
I filled and submitted the DS-260 forms for me and my family. In the confirmation page I was told that I need to obtain required supporting civil documents. I don't know exactly what documents exactly I need to prepare at this stage. Also when I log in to my application I see a section for IV fees with "N/A" written below it. Any idea what the next step is after filling the DS-260?

the confirmation page

Jun 13th 2016

As a simple the end of submitting the DS260 is there any option to print the confirmation page later or send it as email to print it any time or I have to print it once I finished.????

Date of birth challenge

Jun 7th 2016
I'm a DV 2017 selectee and new to the whole process. I understand I have to submit as part of my documents my high school certificate, however the date of birth on the certificate (15/08/1988) differs from the date of birth (07/08/1988) I entered in error during the application in 0ct 2015. I can get a new passport to make up for the error but for my high school certificate It can't be edited. What can I do. I really need your help.
thank you.
