      How can I bring my wife who I have married about 2weeks before leaving to the state to join me after I left?
      Note;I went through the dv lottery. How long would it take me to file for her to join me.

        Please post your question in the forum rather than asking Susie, Simon and I the same question separately.

        I understand your desire for privacy, but the truth is profile messages are open for all and everyone to see, nothing private in it hence my suggestion you post in the forum.

      Hi Simon, I have received the 2NL with the date, but ceac still says in transit. Are there chances of changing the date, or it's a matter of a delayed update?

      Thanks for always being helpful.

        Don't worry about CEAC, that is not what drives the process - so yeah just a lazy update.

      ِDear Simon,

        I saw a group in your ceac file for abu dhabi embassy
        all cases have same Status Updated Date in 17 April.
        interview was between 29 march until 10 April.
        and after that there is no update for cases!
        for example:
        2015AS3479
        2015AS3831
        2015AS3870
        2015AS3873
        2015AS3892
        my question is : what is happen? it maybe embassy grouping them for a specific AP check?
        it possible to get earlier the clearance ?
        thanks in advance .

        No it doesn't mean anything like that. You are overthinking it.

      Hello Simon, just a qucik question. After submitting my DS 260 on June, i got a job on late September. I didnt know that the DS 260 could be re-opened, so i havent updated the DS 260. Having said that my case is scheduled for a June interview, do you think it might present a problem?
      1. Britsimon
        Britsimon
        No that is OK.

      Hi Simon,

      I realise that guy asking about the 1400's was a bit intense, but has something changed your opinion on the oceanic region? I know nothings for sure, and I won't hold you to anything! I'm an actress, and obviously this is a pretty sweet opportunity, but my life doesn't depend on it. I just want to keep my mind in a realistic place. Oh all the needy people you get asking you questions!! Haha.

        No nothing has changed - but I don 't know the exact final cutoff - so yes - when someone asks for certainties the only responsible thing to do is to point out that isn't possible.

      Dear Mr.Britsimon,

      Can you provide some script for me that can check a range numbers update in ceac site and ABU web site?
      Thanks in advance.
      1. Britsimon
        Britsimon
        I am not going to share the CEAC scripts because overuse will cause them to block scripting. Indeed that has just happened so I am having to re-write the script at the moment.

      Dear Mr.Britsimon

      I working with excel format and is great!
      for sum the column I use the subtotal command instead the sum command
      the different is when you use the subtotal then have filter the column you see the sum of filtered column.
      I don't have any experience with Google sheet ,but if possible to add this feature on it so ,filtering will be amazing!

      =sum(A1:A9) => =subtotal(9;A1:A9)

        ahh ok - I'll try that.

      Hello Simon! My wife and I are traveling in three days to the US. Would you have any last minute recommendation for us to make sure everything goes smoothly ? :-) Meaning, besides having the embassy handout envelope and the x-rays cd-rom in our hand when traveling... :-) Thx for your help !

        I don't think you need to worry - it sometimes takes time - but in reality the visa you already have has been endorsed and that will last for up to a year....

        Thanks for the reply, Simon. Is it normal that my receipt number isn't recognized on the myuscis case status website even though it's optimized on the Elis website ?

      Hi Britsimon. Pls what evidence does/would one need to proof that his or her shs results slip is truly his.?bcos of wrong year of birth on the results slip. Is an affidavit enough proof? Thank you
      1. Britsimon
        Britsimon
        You can do an affidavit - but if the CO suspects fraud the affidavit is simply seen as another document provided by a liar. School records like report cards, photos and so on that show you are the person who attended the school is much more valuable in my opinion.
