  1. Hi! I was selected for further processing in DV2023 and immediately submitted my DS-260 back in May 2022, for consular processing. However, my case number is very high EU34XXX and it is still not current even for the month of July and there is only August and September left. Anyways, I have been accepted to a Master's program at the University of Virginia and I require an F-1 student visa as the program starts in early August and I probably wont even get my DV interview. I have already applied for the F-1 visa. As I am a citizen of Belgium, which is part of the Visa Waiver Program, they made me send the documents (such as my passport, I-20, etc.) by courier because I was found eligible for the "Student Interview Waiver". However, they "reserve the right to request an interview" after reviewing my documents. I am really stressed out that I will be denied the F-1 visa because of my submission of a DS-260 over a year ago. The only family I have in the US is my brother who is also on an F-1 visa doing a Master's, otherwise my entire family is in Belgium and UK, so I have strong ties here. I have also shown more than enough financial support on my I-20 and I have a valid ESTA with which I have traveled to the US numerous times without any issues. I currently live in the UK as a resident (EU Settlement Scheme before Brexit), if that makes any difference, and I just finished a Law undergrad. I know that I have shown immigrant intent with the DS-260, but does anyone know of any instances where people have been granted the F-1 Visa despite having a DS-260 application from the DV on file? If I get called to an interview what can I say and what evidence can I show to convince them that I genuinely just want to do the Master's program and return to Europe right after? I submitted the DS-260 because I got selected for the DV, yes, but I genuinely don't feel any need to move to the US for economic/financial/etc reasons. So I would never even think about overstaying my F-1 visa or using it in any way that isn't intended to, such as illegally working, as I am not going to be financially stressed. And even if I got a DV interview (unlikely) in September, it is through consular processing so I would leave the US and come back to Belgium for the interview, meaning that at no point will I have entered the US with my F-1 with the possibility of converting it to a green card. This situation is stressing me out so much I am finding it difficult to sleep. I have no clue what I am going to do next year if I can't get this visa. I have already paid my deposit to the school as well as the off-campus student housing I am going to live in.
  2. Hello everyone! I’m glad that I found a forum like the old ones where people can help each other. Me and my wife won the DV-2023 lottery, we’ve got our visas and are ready to settle in USA. But we know America only from movies and we don’t know which state would be suited for us to start our life there in the US. We don’t know many things like how life will be there, but the first thing I wanted to know and ask, was as a new comer, first time immigrant, which US state is the best for a young couple to start their life in? Cause we are all on our own and we don’t got any relative that would introduce us with the life, rules, living etc there. Thank you very much for your time!
  3. I have a question and hope you could help me.. I know form 134 is not really requirement according to state department but the USA embassy in Egypt sent me list of things needed and the form was listed.. my cousin filled the form for me who's married but his wife don't want to be part of this and he didn't list her as dependent or use he income.. would that be a problem?
  4. Hello all, Is anyone aware of any consulate or embassy in any country that is accepting case transfers? Preferably in Asia or Europe. I have contacted around 15 embassies in Europe, and they are all too busy like the one in my home country, so I am unable to have my interview even though my case has been current since April. Thanks for the help

I'm trying to understand and be prepared. any advise as well is appreciate
  6. Diversity visa ds 260 question on whether you've been to any other country ( yes/no) was never answered. I've never been to any other country. everything else on DS is answered fully except that question. the case is already at Consulate waiting interview. is it possible to request unlock to answer the particular question. or can that be fixed during interview? question 2, I have high school qualification plus vocation school. I have highschool diploma but do not have vocation diploma. will that be an issue? thank you in advance for advice
  7. Hi everyone! I have some questions about my case and help is very much appreciated. My interview date is close. 1- About the form I-134, it states that if the sponsor is married the spouse should also fill a separate form. How can the spouse fill it? What name does she put in the sponsor section? I'm having a hard time understanding it and there isn't much information in the internet. Another thing is the income part of the sponsor. With the new I-134 there is no part where the Sponsor writes his income, it says only how much of it will go to the beneficiary. What minimum is it required, My sponsor has said he will give me 1000$ for 4 months and also provide me with house and all other expenses. He has also put a bank account in the assets part. 2- Other than the taxes and wage receipts, do I need other documents to provide to the embassy from my sponsor? 3- Do I need to send the original documents with DHL to the embassy or I send copies of them? 4- Can I have another friend make me another affidavit of support just in case the first one is refused? Thank You!
