I have been writing this blog for over 2 years now and have a lot of information in old blog posts. People ask questions that have been asked many times – so I am trying to make the information more easily found. So – this home page will hopefully help people navigate around my posts and find information more easily.


First of all, before you ask me a question, please check the FAQ (which stands for Frequently Asked Questions) to see if the question has been asked before. Most questions have been asked many times before. So – the FAQ will often provide answers. The link for the FAQ is at the top of every page and also here.

You can also use the search feature within my site – which is the magnifying glass icon at the top of each page in my site.  I created a short video explaining how to use the FAQ, search and google to find information within my site. Please watch the video here.

Some commonly referred to pages are here:-

DV2018 Basic Questions

Travel Ban info


I post blog entries when the Visa Bulletin is published (first half of each month), and when 2NLs are sent (second half of each month). I also post blog entries on important topics such as the recent travel ban, or the analysis pages about selectee numbers for DV2018 and so on. If you look to the right side of this page you will see a number of “Recent Blog Posts” as a quick way to find current topics.

I will keep this page as the home page for now, and see how this helps.

Best of luck in your DV journey!
