My wife and I would like to thank everybody on this forum, for your help and information that you share with us! - It has been a great help! A quick question, we went for our activation trip 30 of june 2017. We plan to move this year in end of may or early june 2018, which would make it 10-11 month outside US borders. We will of course buy a 1-way ticket, have proof that we have sold our apartment. I am quite conviced that it won´t be any trouble, we are decent people. My wife is quite worried over this as she had read 6-12month, she wants to know if there is any document from UCICS that statse that DV-winners can be away for 12 month before the final move.
