  1. From what I understand the VERY long wait might be over if Biden wins. Rejects the false choice between employment-based and family-based immigration. Each day, in every state in the country, millions of immigrants granted a visa based on family ties make valuable contributions to our country and economy. Keeping families together and allowing eligible immigrants to join their American relatives on U.S. soil is critically important, but the current system is poorly designed with per-country caps that prevent applications from being approved in a timely fashion. That means approved applicants may wait decades to be reunited with their families. As president, Biden will support family-based immigration by preserving family unification as a foundation of our immigration system; by allowing any approved applicant to receive a temporary non-immigrant visa until the permanent visa is processed; and by supporting legislation that treats the spouse and children of green card holders as the immediate relatives they are, exempting them from caps, and allowing parents to bring their minor children with them at the time they immigrate. https://joebiden.com/immigration/#
  2. just a suggestion, will depend on your current work/age. Get your latest pension and retirement annuity statements showing what it is worth. that might just be more than enough. it is savings.
  3. The "path" is basically the same now as for when you apply for a firearm licence. Just for the firearm license you must go to your local police station, fill in all the paperwork etc. They take your fingerprints and then they (SAP) send all to an office in Pretoria. They do that weekly and they also get info back on a weekly basis. My guess is that will be an extra 2-3weeks max for those stations not close to Pretoria (Criminal Record Centre) ps: On the other hand I have seen people not close to Pretoria get their firearm licenses before those that applied in Pretoria. (Same application date)
  4. Hi All Best to follow the links for the details https://news.nari.co.za/info/new-process-getting-police-clearance-certificate.html https://www.saps.gov.za/services/applying_clearence_certificate.php
  5. Thanks. We do not plan any illegal stuff. Our family visa is due in +-18months. We are just planning to kill some time. Cheers
  6. Has anyone stayed/traveled in the USA for about a 6 months period (summer) and then leave for about 6 months (or less) and then return to the USA for a about 6 months again. (B1/2 Visa) Any issues with that? (We retire soon and do not want to be bound to SA all the time for long periods) any do's, dont's
  7. Who will try again? The Diversity Visa program is open for entry from Oct 3 – Nov 6. dvlottery.state.gov
  8. Got an email last night - all must enter again for DV2019 FROM: DONOTREPLY[at]dvlottery.state.gov "Dear Diversity Visa Program entrant:Please check www.dvlottery.state.gov for an important announcement regarding your Diversity Visa Program entry.Remember, only internet sites that end with the ".gov" domain suffix are official U.S. government websites. Many other websites (e.g., with the suffixes ".com," ".org," or ".net") provide immigration and visa-related information and services. The Department of State does not endorse, recommend, or sponsor any information or material on these other websites. The Department of State, KCC, or any other U.S. government entity will never ask you to send money via email or request that you reply with personal information.

    Howzit all, seem there is currently a system error. Please see link below http://britsimonsays.com/dv2018-information-entered-not-valid/
  12. Only 61 days for us to wait.... Shocking! I agree 100% Good luck to all.
  13. Congrats [at]moving2018 - all the best!!
  14. Very interesting, thanks Malamute. You always have some good facts. I wonder how many South Africans are in the queue for the Family visa. If only a total of about 7% per county is allowed per year (if I understand it correctly) that list must be blerry long..... Seems it take about +-13 years since application.
  15. #%&@!! - We (in SA) hope this is not going to happen. This will break our hearts..... Dubbel en dwars! We are in the queue for the family visa and are still trying our luck with the DV. We have enough to retire in the States but that is not what we want to do. A very large family home in a great tourism area is getting renovated to operate as a bed and breakfast that we will run. We cannot go the investor visa route because the total people we have to employ will be a huge over kill.
