Under the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, Immigrant Visas for "Diversity Visas" cannot be issued after September 30th of the year in which you were selected to apply for a Diversity Visa. Is this also for F2A?In this case why I have this note in my case. I apply for F2a?
An F2A as a Family based visa, not a Diversity Visa. Diversity Visa is the correct name for the "Green Card Lottery".
Answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. Sometimes small differences in facts, which are undetectable without a complete review of the case and a consultation, make a complete difference in the result. Please do not seek the assistance of a non-attorney. They are not licensed to provide legal advice and will deny ever doing so. Seek the assistance of an experienced attorney for case specific legal advice. The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be solely based upon advertisements. Before you decide, please ask us about our qualifications and experience and we will be pleased to send you written information upon request.
No, rest assured, the rule you quoted only applies to "Diversity Visa" ((DV) Green Card Lottery Selectees who apply for the DV-based green card. That "one fiscal year rule" does not apply to any other category than DV and certainly not to the F2-A family visa category, which does not "die" within just one fiscal year. Rest assured.
Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known.
