  1. One of the things I did to improve my credit score was to look at the credit card recommendations on CreditKarma. I would then select the cards with no annual fee, a sign-up bonus and applied for it via site. Approval took less than a minute and the card arrived in the mail a couple of days later. By using the new card for a month or two (and spending a few hundred dollars) I would then get $100 or $150 as a statement credit (the sign-up bonus). I did this many times and saved about $1000 this way. I am now sitting with a fistful of no-fee credit cards that I hardly use and a handy credit score.
  2. SJ272, I am a longtime user of CreditKarma. and found it very useful to monitor & build my credit score and also for filing tax returns - all at no charge!
  3. I entered SA 2 weeks before my passport expired - they didn't even have a second look look at it.

    Passport Renewal

    Rather renew your SA passport while you are still in SA. It is far cheaper, easier and quicker (takes around 2 weeks) to do than when you are in the USA - you'll be sorted for the next 10 years.

    I noticed that the numbers are progressing quite slowly this year - I wonder why that is?
  6. Well done - It's a long journey that is finally coming to an end

    As far as I recall you need an unabridged marriage certificate but check your documentation that states what you require - it will indicate exactly what you need.
  8. This page of the SA consulate website confirms the $25 mentioned by JJF
  9. I listed my non-USA address as the address where I lived.
  10. I completed the section on the form about my trips outside the US - they did not ask a single question about the long absences. My guess is that it is not uncommon for people to have one such trip.... maybe the guy that handled my case was in a good mood and let it slide. I did have answers ready for them in case they asked.... flimsy ones, but answers none the less.

    I get what you're saying about the risk and volatility - virtually all currencies (except XRP) nosedived dramatically during the past 2 weeks, making it a good time to buy. I did and so far my endeavours are showing handsome gains- fingers crossed!
  12. As [at]RubyShoes said in an earlier post... I was out of the US for two 5 month periods. I simply applied, told the truth, and left it up to them to either approve or reject my application- it was approved. My research at the time showed that (according to the courts) the time before you lived here doesn't count towards the continuous residency period, but I guess they aren't very strict with the application thereof. My recommendation would be to file an application now.

    Many single people who get selected in the DV lottery gets married after the date that they were selected which changes their application from a single one to that of a family - my point being that a change in circumstances is not uncommon. You should not have any problems, but would simply have to explain your situation.

    I am curious no know whether any other forum members have dived into the Crypto market. I am on vacation in Florida but spend most of my time monitoring price movements on my laptop and mobile! With the meteoric rise of Bitcoin over the past couple of years it seems that Crypto's are becoming more mainstream (and are here to stay for the foreseeable future at least). I am betting on Ripple to be the next "thing" - any thoughts?
