Hi all, I have a question about activating DV visa. When I am at an airport (port of entry), which line should I go for? I believe usually there are 2 different lines: one for citizens/green card holders, another one for non-citizens.

for your activation trip you will use the non-citizen line

Usually non citizen, a few airports have dedicated new immigrant lines.

Congrats! It must be such a good feeling now when you are finally checking and booking that flight to USA! May I ask what further documents the KCC required from you on April 2nd? Anything unusual/new?

Hi everyone!

Anybody any idea what “Ready” means?

Interview was on sep. 4th , visa was approved but not gotten the passports back. Just checked the visa status website and found out it says “Ready”. Was not it supposed to say “Granted”?

Thank you.
It turns to “issued” (not “granted”) when the visa is actually printed, which can take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks after the interview for standard cases. “Ready” means it hasn’t been updated since before your interview. The updating of status is up to the individual consulate and some are better than others at doing it. Did you have to register with a courier company for return of the passports?
The last update on that case is 17 September so they are doing...something.

Thank you SusieQQQ.

Yes they have registered for courier return at DHL.

Any idea if the visa availability is maxed out for 2019 yet? If it is possible to know at all.

They ran out of visas for Egypt (country max reached) but other than that there should be ample available. This case is Ethiopia?
Maybe they can contact the embassy, or even DHL to see if they have received any communication about the case from the embassy?

Yes it is Ethiopia. Sure we will check at the DHL then embassy.

Hmm...thank you very much. I will come back for the update on Monday possibly.

Is it likely any outstanding visas that have to be issued will be done this week? Would people still have interviews for dv2019 this week or is it done and dusted?
