If someone helps you, you must be present when anyone prepares your entry so that you can answer the questions correctly and retain your unique confirmation number and printout of your confirmation page. It is very important to keep a printout of your confirmation page and your unique confirmation number. Unscrupulous visa facilitators keep printing out the confirmation page to help entrants, and then demand more money in exchange for a confirmation number. Without this information, you will not be able to access the online system that informs you of your login status. Be careful if someone offers to keep this information for you. You must also have access to the email account listed on your E-DV entry.
