    Selectees from Ghana can ask questions here. I had good support from the forum and I'm back to help others.

    Let's reduce/eliminate the fraud that has plagued our system and has caused people to be refused visas.

    My wife (PA) and I played DV 2018 and she was selected. We both had entered each other and our 3 children as derivatives. Case number is 2018AF00016xxx. We've already filled and submitted the DS 260 forms for both PA and derivatives. In the EDV my wife erroneously selected "University Degree" as highest education. The truth is she's not been given her degree certificate due to errors on her transcripts caused by the university. She's been trying to correct it for a while but got tired of chasing it. Anyway the net effect of it is that she does not in fact have a degree to show for it. She however has her WASSCE certificate. Will unlocking the DS 260 to correct this error by choosing "University no degree" cause a problem in Accra where we would be doing our CP?

    You have about 6 to 8 months to sort this out before you are interviewed. So - relax!

    You need to be more specific, your question is too broad - precisely what is it you wish to know about?

    I'm aware that the US consular section in Accra no longer accepts the old handwritten birth certificates. Similarly you cannot acquire the biometric passport without the new automated birth cert which is really an extract confirming what is on the handwritten birth certificate. Is it recommended to take both the old one and the new automated birth cert to the interview for the DV immigration? Or would the new one be sufficient?

    The new one is sufficient. No need for the old one.

    No,I wasn't told to prove it,was given a paper which says I wasn't eligible for a non immigrant visa and was told to try again.bt I believe that since I hv my information there already as married when I apply as single and get selected then during interview they wld find out that I lied or maybe prove it.

    Well this is precisely why we keep telling people to not lie with regards to immigration matters, it always comes back and bite.

    Yes they already have your false information in the system, will it impact a DV selection or an immigrant visa petition? I don't know, the only way to know for sure is to give it a shot. If they didn't give you a document that says you've been found inadmissible, then there's hope.

    Anyway, you need to bear in mind this is simply a lottery with about 1% chance of selection. So apply and get selected first, then worry about the impact of the previous NIV petition denial.
