I am searching for ways to get visa. I registered in DV. Any other way?

You didn't specify 'legal immigration', so just sneak in! Mind that you copy how one sneaks on computer games - bend down slightly and walk slowly. It boosts your sneak points by 10!

You may get better information on forums specialized on these matters. A programming forum is hardly that place

Agreed, I've known a number of immigrants but they all recieved visa's because they were scientists, professors, or diplomats and most went through a job opportunity.

Did you try passing a reference to the US in Country::getVisa()? Maybe declare your current citizen ship as pure virtual...

#Steal stuff from Mario F.'s game
Don't forget to take the conditional breakpoints, inline functinos, binders, negators, weak pointers, smart pointers, and general dynamic binding into account when designing the citizenship class. They are a little tricky with inheritance, apparently.

search google for "immigration USA forums". Take some time browsing through them to get a feel. My guess is that some of them will be many things, but helpful. Also definitely USA Immigration must have websites guiding you through several options.

USA is no different from many other countries, I guess. Options usually are (probably from easiest to hardest results-wise):

. Student Visa (many countries go into student exchange protocols or whatever it is called. But you can still apply to this one without going through those protocols)

. Sponsorship Programs (marriage, family and even friends)

. Working Visa Programs (depends on your qualifications. Can be funny. Portugal, for instance, needs more hairdressers than doctors)

. Sports (Much like working visa. But the sad truth in this life is that if you are good at sports, you may be a thief slash murderer slash rapist, but you can easily apply for a visa. This is actually the easiest one to apply. Should be up there, if not for the fact it's hard to be good at sports at an international level)

. Exile (hard, hard, hard and you can put another hard on that. Best way to apply for this one is to enter the country illegaly. It's hard to apply for exile if your government allowed you to leave the country)

My government don't let me exit now. I have to join the army for 2 years.

Many countries, like France (or they used to anyway) require you join the army at 18, it wasn't your only option, though. Your other option is to have your citizenship revoked. I don't know for sure, but that might put you in a good chance for getting another citizenship if you have no country. But, you're sure you can't leave until you serve?

For the records, I meant refugee, not exile. I have no idea why I wrote exile, other than probably my english failed me at that point.

Exile is an entirely different process that is out of fashion these days.

I'm sure, but if needed, maybe I can get rid of it.
I am thinking about how to get visa as a refugee...

Can't you find a hot chick for yourself there? Or they always hide when you come?

You are threading on thin ice and I suggest you take this issue to a proper forum. Take my advice before you annoy more than a good share of people.

OK, I wasn't mean to annoy anybody, sorry if I did (though I don't really know what was annoying).
Thanks Mario for forum suggestion, I've never thoght about immigration forums.

Good luck, but I've gotta say I doubt the US is going to be in a huge rush to admit Iranians any time soon.

This (http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_1317.html) tells 1300 Iranians won.
[edit]
Though it doesn't mean they are permited to enter USA.

Well, more power to you if you make it in. I'm just saying that the US in general isn't all that high on Iran right now. I'm sure you know that as well as anyone, though.

And I'd imagine getting in from the UK is even lower right now, given the latest terrorist threat issue and the super-over-increased security at the airports.

Although that situation does appear to have improved today ... slightly.

Who is agree about starting a discussion about US increased security?

Mario F.

Is there anything to discuss besides the fact that probably these days too much is still not enough?

Did you see the fall down of WTC?

Mario F.
08-14-2006, 05:24 PM
Yes. I actually saw it on TV even before the second tower was hit. What's your point?

Have you seen the destruction of buildings with explosives?

SlyMaelstrom
08-15-2006, 01:57 AM
Explosive, like a plane is when it hits a building? Yeah, I saw that, when I saw the WTC buildings collapse. If you're still hovering over that lame conspiracy theory you might want to check out a science mag or two.

It's not too bad now, though. The situation has been decremented from 'severe' to 'extreme', or something like that. From the UK I mean.

Oh yes, cause political discussions are so popular here!!

I asked you what was your point, and you decided to answer with another cryptic question. I'm sorry, I didn't understand this was a quiz
