  • What if I submit forms with errors

    Hello, I'm a DV 2012 winner, I made a mistake in Q30, I put my birth year instead of my birth year + 16 because I never leaved my home /city/province/country since I was born.
    The Question is, should I send a clarification/correction by myself or wait till they ask me for new correction of that mistake, because people advised me to not send anything till they ask, I mean should I wait their reject to re-submit new form with changes or I can do it now by myself. And about the reject did you get it in a mail or email?

      I was born in 1985, and they want to know place I lived science 16 for more than 6 moths, that mean they want to know where I lived since 2001, I never leaved my city/province/country since the day I was born, I wrote in the last field of the first and lonely line 08-1985 instead of 08-2001.
      Hope that you understand what I wrote, and give me answer, people says it's not a big mistake and they will understand that...

          They will understand it, don't worry. I wrote the same since I was living in the same place since I was 3 years old.

            Send them an email with the correct data. I hope you did not make this mistake in the original application.

              I don't see this as a mistake to affect your application, however I agree with Tazmania that you should just send an email with the correct info. I suspect that from what you've submitted, they will realize that you've lived the same place since birth.

                Thank you all for the response,
                I got it, I'm going to send'em an email, to clarify that mistake.
                Tazmania what do you mean by :
                I hope you did not make this mistake in the original application.
                I didn't get the word original application, there is only one application, and it is the lonely and original one that I submit before (the two forms and the two pictures I mean) !!

                  Before you email them, tell us exactly what you will write so we can make sure it will get your point across. You don't want there to be a misunderstanding with your application.

                    Humm, I will e-mail :

                    Dear Sir,
                    I made a mistake after submitting forms in question 30 if DS-230 Part I, I had to write in last field of the unique line -representing my present/ultimate residence- "my birth year + 16", but I wrote my birth year since I never leaved my home/city/province/country I was born in. Should I re-submit a new DS-230 Form's page as soon as possible by myself or wait till office ask me for a clarification.
                    Best regards.

                      Who shoud understand this? Anyway, you need to include your case number and DOB into the mail.

                      Write:

                      Please correct Q30 in DS-230 I sent to KCC from x.x.xxxx to x.x.yyyy

                      Thats it.

                        Tazmania please look at this :
                        Dear Sir/Madam,
                        My inquiry is as follow,
                        I submitted DS-122 and DS-230 part I & II forms on 5-5-2011 through priority mail from Xxxx, but I made a mistake in question 30 of the DS-230 part I form, I was born in 1985 and never leaved my home/city/province/country since I was born till now, the answer should be my city/my province/my country from 2001 to Present, but I wrote in the last field from 1985 -my birth year- to Present, so please correct that field in question 30 in DS-230 part I, from 2001 to Present.
                        Yours faithfully.

                          Sorry, are you kidding me? If you never left the city where you are born the form should show 1985 - present and not vice versa what you wrote.

                          However, dont send the email yet. It will take some time before KCC has updated your case. Wait about a week.

                            I agree; it should show 1985 - ... not your birthdate+16 years.

                              Forget it, Q30 is asking for the period after age of 16 years. So If you were born in 1985, 2001 - present is right.

                              Next time include what the question is asking, that makes things easier.

                                Dear Tazmania, I wrote the question's number three times before, and I don't understand how till now can't get the question :-), here is a simple :

                                h**p://data.imagup.com/7/1119665234.jpg

                                You have to know that I never leaved my city / province / country so I just put one line, and instead of writing from 02-1991 to Present, I wrote as shown in the picture. So yes what I submitted was wrong (but unfortunately not that big wrong).
                                Hope that you get it, and check my message and advice me about correction (of the e-mail) before I send it to KCCDV@state.gov :
                                Dear Sir/Madam,
                                My inquiry is as follow,
                                I submitted DS-122 and DS-230 part I & II forms on 5-5-2011 through priority mail from Rome, but I made a mistake in question 30 of the DS-230 part I form, I was born in 02-1975 and never leaved my home/city/province/country since I was born till now, the answer should be my city/my province/my country from 02-1991 to Present, but I wrote in the last field from 02-1975 (my birth year) to Present, so please, when you get my application forms, I'm asking you to correct the last field in question 30, DS-230 part I to "from 02-1991 to Present".
                                Yours faithfully.
                                Note : change the "**" by "tt" to see the picture.

                                  I still don't think you need to make a correction. If you put 1985 to present, then they can only deduce that you've been there all your life. If you need to correct it then send a very short to the point email with only the pertinent info so as to not confuse anyone.

                                  If you feel compelled to correct it then I agree with Tazmania:

                                  Correction for Q30 in DS-230 as follows:
                                  Rome Rome Italy 2001 - present

                                  Thank you.

                                        I think i left out a questing in the DS-230
                                        The qesting was about "In what occupation do you intend to work in the United States"
                                        How will i know if i filled it.
                                        And is there a way you can verifier if u have answered all the Questing on the form from KCC
