Important Notice to DV-2012 Winners
May 7, 2012
Successful entrants are encouraged to send in their required documents to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) immediately, so that an interview appointment at the appropriate U.S. Embassy or consulate can be scheduled before the program ends. In order for an appointment to be scheduled with either a U.S. Embassy or Consulate, entrants must first submit the Form DSP-122 and Form DS-230 to KCC. Embassies and consulates only have a limited number of appointments each month, including September, for DV applicants, so it is vital that successful entrants mail these documents to KCC very soon.
DV 2012 ends on September 30, 2012. In addition, if all of the 50,000 DV visas have been issued before that date, the program will end. U.S. Embassies and Consulates only have six months left to issue visas to eligible applicants in the DV 2012 program. Successful entrants should act now. DV-2012 visas cannot be issued after September 30, 2012. Participants are reminded to check the status of their DV entry through Entrant Status Check http://www.dvlottery.state.gov/, using the confirmation numbers they received when they initially submitted their applications.
