    Hi After sending that email in which I put the Baghdad embassy in the attachment of the email, this is the answer that they sent me today. What is the next step? Shall I send the same email to KCCDVDocuments@state.gov again? (The information you provided will be forwarded to the appropriate department.  In the future, please send your required documents to KCCDVDocuments@state.gov.)

    No, that’s an old template they’re using, that email is unmonitored. 


    Give them a few weeks, then try again.

    You can try this"

    there is a blank page for additional information


    on there write u made a mistake and u need it sent to KCC and will interview in your country's embassy]


    it might or might not work ,   so be prepared to email KCC

    As far as I’m aware, there’s no blank page on a DV DS-260 for additional information.


    Besides, even if there were, OP’s DS260 will always indicate AOS - as it doesn’t change -  only way OP can confirm he’s actually been changed to CP is by communicating with KCC anyway. 

  3. Once that option is selected you cannot change it on the form. 


    You’ll have to complete your DS260, submit it, and then email kccdv@state.gov and request consular processing. 


    Indicate which embassy or consulate you’d like to be assigned to, but ensure your current address is correct and appropriate for that embassy - otherwise they will assign you automatically based on your address.

    it is laminated on left side of visa  (black and white -not full size 2x2)



    Not that it’s important, but mine and my spouse’s IV photograph is definitely not laminated, or raised in any way, it appears to just be printed along with the rest of the visa.


    I have an old NIV from the 90s, that photo is definitely laminated, but I didn’t realize that persisted even until recently.

    How soon after she arrived to the US did she leave to go back to her home country? 
    I’ve read USCIS is aware when LPRs leave the country and this sometimes “pauses” the issuance of the green card if the LPR is not in the country. I’ve read this has happened to several people over the years… calling USCIS won’t resolve the issue as the people working at the call center know next to nothing about individual cases… 

    That’s interesting. I stayed in the US after first crossing for just a few minutes, then walked out, got my green card within a month.

    It is for DV 2024.

    Contact KCC at kccdv@state.gov with a screenshot of the errors. Sometimes this means the CN is locked after several unsuccessful attempts. In some cases, you will have to verify identity.

    "The case number entered is currently unavailable". This error message appears when I try to login into DS-260 application form. How can I get my CN and log in to fill the online form? Please help me. 


    Is this for DV23 or DV24?

    Dear KCC Team,


    I am writing to inform you that there was an error in my Diversity Visa registration, where my husband's date of birth was mistakenly entered as my own(day only). His correct date of birth is July 21, 1987, while my correct date of birth is October 25, 1988. Due to this mistake, my repeated attempts to access the DS-260 form have resulted in my form being blocked.
    I kindly request your assistance in reviewing my case and guiding me through the necessary steps for identity verification and submission of the required legal documents. I would greatly appreciate it if you could direct me to the appropriate channel, either the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad or the U.S. Consulate in Erbil, for further assistance. I have attached my supporting documents to this email for your reference.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter. I look forward to your prompt response.



    Good. Let us know how it goes.

    Those who have filed a Writ of Mandamus during administrative processing, how long after the summons was issued did it take to see movement on your case? 

    After the defendants are served they have 60 days to respond. For a lot of people, it’s in the last week or two of that window they start seeing action. Sometimes there are extension requests filed at that time, or the visa is issued.

    Hey guys! 

    I hope everyone is doing well. 


    I just wanted to let everybody know I travelled to the states with no issues at all, in fact it was the smoothest process lol.


    I am considering filing writ of mandamus and got in touch with Goldstein, Hacking, and PIC as we are discussing the best option for us.


    Goldstien and hacking told us we would be eligible to file a case after 60 days (43 days left) and still waiting to hear back from PIC, they said they’ll contact us within 24 hours.


    Will keep everyone updated.


    for those who filed , which one did you find the best for you? 

    PIC was the best for us.


    Our case was complex but they handled it beautifully. They were always responsive, quick to file, and we felt they genuinely cared about the outcome. 

    They actually took over for an incompetent lawyer so they were definitely a breath of fresh air.

    Yes he did.

    Your husband could have crossed with the child, or you could have crossed with the child. If Montreal does not re-issue the visa (note it will require another medical), your husband can petition for you two, but it can be a few years living apart. If you are issued the visa this year, after 221g, I don’t imagine you would be going? What a situation.

    Hey everyone. first, I wanna say congratulations to the winners of DV Lottery 2024. 


    I have been trying my chance with DV Lottery for 7 years now, this year was my seven attempt, and I didn't get selected. I feel like if I try my chance for the next 100 years, I will not be selected, I have always dreamed about living in the United States, and every year I submit in the DV lottery, I count a lot on it, I don't have any other solution to immigrate to the United States, or maybe Canada, because study fees are high in the two countries, too expensive. so I don't have any other easy solutions except the DV lottery. Hopefully in the next year i will get lucky :) 

    Good luck to you! I know people that have won after 10+ tries.

    I cannot mentioned my lawyer's name now .defendant file motion to dismiss and my lawyer is responding them, but I lost all my hope as everyone here comes and talking about their mandamus file was successful,


    did somebody have the same experience? please guys let me know 

    I know a few people who had these motions, it’s really important you have a good lawyer that can respond well. Mandamus isn’t just a magic bullet, sometimes it’s a fight.
