        True, I nominate you as the 'captain' of this thread. Don't worry, once we get a few Ghanaians to join you, we will make sure this thread will not die prematurely.

        Btw, I had successful interview yesterday. Read my interview experience from the Ghanaian thread for dv-2010 winners. Hope you also make it.

            thanks alexee and ammeck. I'm so happy for u guys. hoping for the best for u guys in all ur endeavours Amen.

            I know all is going to be well with me In Jesus' name.

            But i have a little problem, i applied for a visitors' visa for a trip i am supposed to embark on the 18th may 2010 but after interview i was put on administrative processing. its barely 4days for the trip and i have heard nothing from the embassy although i went for the interview on 22nd march, 2010. this is giving me headaches.

            and i'm also concerned of the effect this has on my selecetion for the DV-2011 program. i have a very low CN 2011AF00003XXX and i believe i will be current soon (maybe in October 2010). don't know if i should go ahead and send de forms back to kcc or wat?

              I think you need to wait a bit to see the outcome of your application before sending the forms back to KCC. Note: the outcome of your visitor's visa application will not in any way affect your dv lottery application. The only effect it will have is if you have provided a fake document to back your visitor's visa application and if this was picked by the the consulate official.

              You have a good case number which suggest your interview will be in October. Just wait on the decision before sending the forms - I am sure the AP will not be delayed unnecessary.

                                      Don't worry, you should have done that but many past winners forgot to put their CNs on the forms but they went through the whole process without any problem. You will be fine.
