DS260: submitted on 1st August 2018, unlocked June 14th 2019 to correct my surname and given name
Submission of Docs: 1st submission 30th April 2019 and resubmitted again on 18th May 2019.
I didn’t receive any email from KCC to submit docs.
7th June 2019: ready for scheduling email received.
2NL: 30th July 2019, interview date 20th September 2019.
Registered my appointment online and did my medicals and started preparing my docs. documents prepared were (birth cert., Advanced level, police certificate(updated),bachelor degree and I-134(even though it was not asked for).
arrived at embassy at 7:10am and met a lot of people. both for IV and DV. but priority was given to IV. we were led in and after security checks, we went and sat waiting to be called to submit our docs and pay fees. it was a long wait and at 11:30 we were called to submit documents. docs submitted were (1NL, 2NL, Birth certificate, updated Police certificated, A level results medicals and my Bachelor degree) please be well prepared in terms of cash because we were all surprised as the exchange rate had increase. hold enough cash on you. some had to go and look for more cash elsewhere.
after submitting ours docs and paying interview fee, we were given a number and asked to wait outside for the number to be called.
At 2pm we were called in and 15mins later my number was called on window 6. there, I met one black guy there. I was surprised.
the Guy: good afternoon
me: good afternoon sir
the guy: what is your name
the guy: when did u have your A level?
the guy: married?
the guy: Children?
Me:NO. he was typing some informations on the computer. he took my fingerprints and gave me a white paper to fill. my heart skipped for a second as i thought it was a refusal paper. but it was an undertaking on joining the military blablabla. I signed and handed to him and he told me to go and have a sit that I would be called later for interview.
At 2:30PM, I was called again to counter 4 an this time it was a nice white man who was there. the interview was like;
CO: good afternoon
Me: good afternoon sir
CO: what is your name?
He checked my passport and confirms am the one
CO: four fingers on screen please. But before we start raise your right hand (oath taking)
Me: yes i do
CO: are you married
me: No sir
CO: how many children,
CO checks my face and confirms am the one on the computer
then he starts by handing me my original documents (a level, birth certificate and degree)
CO: congrats on your results. I will approve your visa and you will come back in 4 working days to collect
Me: ok thank you sir
CO: (while writing on the yellow paper) do you know where you are going to live in the US?
Me: yes sir. am going to XXX
CO: and who is going to receive you there?
Me: A family friend sir
CO(as he hands me the yellow paper) Okay is good to live with someone who will guide you when you arrive. congratulations and have a nice day
Me: with all smiles, thank you sir and have a nice day too.
the interview with the white did not even last for up to 45 seconds. I left the hall with smiles all over my face.
Green Card Lottery Interview Experience From Paris
My experience with DV lottery 2019AF46XXX
Oh, it’s been a long journey , but first thank to everyone who stood by me during this entire journey.
Well , I finally passed my interview the 18th September , in Paris embassy
I went over prepared , got copies of everything , but finally they took only few documents ( No sponsor or any financial documents was asked )
CO asked few question , maybe less then 2 minutes , then he said congrats
18 September Interview ( the status changed in CEAC to ready )
19 September status changed to AP ( and here it started the fear because I took everything with me )
20 September status changed to the beautiful ISSUED
25 September got my passport with the VISA and other documents
Well , finally it’s done , but now the serious things will start , a new life and new experience that I’ve been waiting for my whole life
I have some final questions please , I asked the CO to change my address , but he didn’t ( in the immigrant data summary sheet , it still remains the old address ) do I changed directly in the USCIS website after paying the immigrant fees or in the border I inform the agent ?
What are the questions I’ll be asked by the agent ?
And can I enter from NY while the address I gave is in Miami ?
also a last question ,the visa expire in 27 February and I need to enter before that date , my question is I have the right to enter few days before that date ? I mean what if my green card takes time to be ready and my visa expire by that time ? how it works ? or should I go earlier to avoid any possible problem !
Thank you very very much.
I hope that this post on Green Card Lottery interview experience has been of great help to you.
