Discussion in 'Lottery Visas - DV' started by Sm1smom, Jun 17, 2017.
Thread created on request for DV2018 EU Selectees to share ideas and encourage each other.
Thanks for the thread! Congrats on everyone who won !! I finally got selected after applying for 7+ years. I am case number EU15xxx
Does anyone have any information about how an entrepreneur can prove that his/her work experience is sufficient for the DV requirements? How can one compare entrepreneur's work experience to those descriptions on the O*net website and how does one prove it matches?
Didn't we have this discussion already? You can't "prove" it matches if it does not, in fact, match. It totally depends on the actual job the "entrepreneur" does.
We kinda did, yeah, except that I didn't really get an answer...
I mean, forget about my case, but let's say that one has a matching job as an entrepreneur; how does one prove it? What kind of proof one needs to show about it? I don't think there's "a size chart" for a company one owns, so how it will be measured "officially" whether one's entrepreneurship qualifies for DV?
I started the conversation again in hopes to get answers from someone who has actually been qualified through work experience as an entrepreneur.
You mean, I think, that you didn't get an answer you liked.
A matching job as an entrepreneur will generally have a bunch of company documents that can show it, including tax returns to show company turnover and the salary you draw as an owner (which is one way if not the only way to compare to the kind of job you are claiming), etc. So if you are claiming CEO equivalency but (for example) if your company does turnover of $100k a year and you draw a salary of $50k, clearly there will be some scepticism there. On the other hand if your turnover is $500k and you draw $200k, well it's obviously not real CEO level, but it's certainly at a level you can probably use to argue meets the requirements in terms of some kind of managerial role.
Thats an amazing number congrats i got selected and mine is EU25xxx i hope we get called on an interview and we get visa

"...The affidavit of support should be in the form of the I-134 which must be filled out by a US legal resident..." and "...The income of the person filling out the I-134 should be greater than that shown on the Federal Poverty Guidelines for total number of family members for the sponsor/family AND the selectee/derivatives. ..."
