    Sydney Consulate and emails

    Hi. My spouse has her IR-1 interview next Tuesday, July 1st. On June 12th, we sent an email to the Consulate (using the designated email address) asking permission for me, the petitioner, to attend the interview. Sydney allows this, but demands that you get prior permission. We heard nothing...

    DV 2014 Hopefuls - It's that time again!!!

    Has ANYONE gotten their 2013 results yet?

    It's been 4 hours since the release of the results, and I still haven't been able to get to the final page. In the 4 hours, I've gotten the "fill in your data" page 4 times, but then it hangs and gives up. I've been getting "SERVER TOO BUSY", and 501s and all sorts of crapola - but no...

    Question for "Mature Age" DV Lottery winners

    My partner is a DV hopeful. She and I are in our late 50s and are both retired, by the grace of God and with really hard work. If she were to win a slot, she can demonstrate income - as she has two rental properties in her home country. However, she is "too mature" to ever qualify for the...
