When to file 260 to delay interview.

May 20th 2015
Hi guys. Lets share some tips & tricks.

My case number is AS000055xx.
When should I submit my Ds-260 in order to get a visa interview in April or May 2015.
(Reason for this is, I can not travel to US before October, 2015 - job contract issues. For example, if I get a Visa in February, I have to travel within 6 months, which is August - not suitable for me).
So, here is my estimation: If I submit my DS-260 on January 1st. It will take minimum 4-8 weeks to get fully processed. Lets say it gets...

I made a mistake in DS-260

May 19th 2015
Hi all, I have a problem which is confusing:

in fact, i have realized that i did a mistake in the DS-260 with one of the middle names !!!!

1- it's bit strange as we are using a "long Name system" in Egypt which means that they write (full 5 names) in the official documents !
2- when i filled up the DV entry, i put my Surname, Given name , As i remember, when i entered the DS-260 form for the first time, it was already written in the form as per the DV-entry
3-how can i correct that ? ( i...

Hi All

I was getting the STO message like alot of you last week. On May 7 I finally got the 1st NL to display )!! However I am now having some issues when trying to get the information.

Permanent address on DS-260 form

May 18th 2015
Hi Sm1smom,
DS-260 form asks for a "Permanent Address in US".
Is this asking my future permanent address in the US ?
Or,
just any permanent address of my any know persons where I can choose to get my Green card delivered ?

There are 1-2 my distantly known persons in US. But they hesitate to share their address.
What I should be doing in this case ?

Please guide me.

DS-260 - To Complete ASAP Or Not To Complete ASAP

May 17th 2015
Hi Everyone

Sorry for the Shakespeare quote above (I just thought it funny).

My wife (married yesterday ) will have her passport renewed when she goes to Spain in June (it expires mid June). Therefore, the passport information for the ds-260 form will be invalid since she will have a new passport by the time of the interview.

Should we submit the ds-260 form now with the passport information we have, and then ask the KCC to unlock it in order to update the passport when she has her new...

DV Lottery - How furnishing DS-260 form

May 17th 2015
Hi Experts,
while furnishing the DS-26 form, I come across following questions :
Q1.) Do you have documentation to establish that you have received vaccinations in accordance with U.S. law?
I don’t remember when & what ‘vaccinations’ I had received as I don't have any records. Please suggest how can I manage to answer this question because when I choose "NO", it asks for "Explanation".

I think, if I choose "YES", I would have to show its proof to CO.
Please suggest what should I do...

Should I wait and try again?

May 17th 2015
Hi,
I have just found your website and it is very helpful. But I have a couple of questions. I was selected for the DV-2015 in May 2014 but only heard about the interview recently which is at the end of June.
Firstly on booking the medical for the interview I was informed that I may need boosters for any vaccines I may have had. This is not something I want to do so would anyone have any information/help on filling for an exemption due to moral reasons?

Also, I will not really be in a position...

2016 DV Help!

May 16th 2015
Hi

My family and I just checked our status for 2016 and we got in! We are OC000002XX but I'm not even really sure about the relevance of that yet. I have two questions:
Firstly, It is my fathers application we got in on, but he was born in the UK so is using my mother's Australian citizenship. Is that okay even though he is the primary applicant?
And secondly, everything says we should move fast but how relevant is that? We aren't sure if we are even going to take up the visas so how fast...

Bill to scrap the diversity lottery

May 15th 2015
I'm not sure whether this has been attempted before, at least to the stage of actually submitting a bill to Congress, to find support to have the DV program eliminated in its entirety, but I just had Google alert me to this latest attempt by some FL based Republican Senator:

First Name/Middle Name on US documents

May 15th 2015
For starters, I should say that my full name, as written on my foreign passport, is:
[Surname FirstName-MiddleName], with the hyphen between first and middle.

When I submitted the DV Lottery application back in 2012, I've written [FirstName] in the first name box, and [MiddleName] in the middle name box. The same when I submitted the immigration forms(DS230, DSP122): completed all three boxes,...
