Dv lottery and B2 visa confusion

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good evening and thank you very much as u help me out..am from Ghana 

I have applied for B2 visa to visit my brother, interview date is on December 3rd  and  this week i found out that I have been selected for the American lottery. I have gone ahead to fill n submit a DS-260 immigrants form.

Now my question is is there going to be any interference that could lead to a denial of visa since I have applied for DS-160(b2 visa) and DS-260 (dv lottery immigrant visa)..am a little confused, clarification will really help me.thank you once again.

It's possible that the B-2 visa could be denied, but still go to the interview; Good luck! This has no negative effect on the dv lottery visa; Congratulations!

@Tett, I assume you already know the DV steps: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/diversity-visa-program-entry/diversity-visa-if-you-are-selected.html I also assume you know to do the DV steps as soon as possible, since you already submitted the DS-260 (that's good). For example, in 2 years ago lottery approximately 115,968 people were selected but only 50,000 visas can be issued: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/diversity-visa-program-entry/dv-2018-selected-entrants.html

I think it's worth correcting the above post: whether you get interviewed or not is dependent on you case number, not how quickly you submit your DS260.

No negative effect on the DV. The only tip if your B-2 is approved and you visit the US is to not forget about or unnecessarily delay the DV process; good luck!
