DV Lottery Winner DS-260 Address Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Here we go again with the same question that has been asked a zillion times with no proper answer. Can a person use a hotel address, a business address, or purchase a street address and include it in their DS-260 form? Can they opt out from answering the question or say no and still move forward with the application? Please ONLY answer if you have been through the same scenario (no address or hotel address) or you have credible information from an authority that states clearly what should be done. Let's keep this straight forward for future generations. Nobody has to go through ten pages of people expressing their opinion.

Thank you all

If you can't change your mind, are you sure you still have one?

Put a hotel address or any other valid street address to be able to submit the application, then update it to the actual address for your green card to be sent to either at interview or at your POE when you finally land. 


I’m a little puzzled by your post to be honest, this has been both done and discussed with very little controversy many times. A P.O. Box is not an acceptable address, and you can’t submit electronically without an address so neither of those are options.

Perhaps before going further we also need to mention the VJ ToS.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
