According to the U.S. Department of State, the much awaited result of the Diversity Visa Lottery 2012 result will be released on May 1, 2011.All candidates who applied to the DV lottery 2012 must log in to the U.S. Department of State website with their confirmation number to find out if they won. The result of DV 2012 will not be sent by mail. If you applied and do not know how to check or you do not have access to the internet, please come to or call the Law Office of Joseph Famuyide with your confirmation number and we will check the result for you free of charge.
If you have access to the internet, please log onto http://www.dvlottery.state.gov on or after May 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012 to check whether or not you won. Please note this important notice from the State Department; Online Entry Status Check will be the ONLY means of informing you of your selection for DV-2012. All entrants, including those NOT selected, may check the status of their entries through the Entry Status Check on the E-DV website www.dvlottery.state.gov and find out if their entry was or was not selected. Entrants will need to use the information from their DV-2012 confirmation pages saved at the time of entry. The DV-2012 registration period was from October 5, 2010, until November 3, 2010.
If you are a winner, please follow the instruction given online on the same website on what to do to reap the benefit of being selected.
The U.S. State Department added that Entry Status Check will provide you, the successful selectee, instructions on how to proceed with your application and notify you of the date and time of your immigrant visa appointment. The Kentucky Consular Center will no longer mail notification letters to DV selectees. Those selected in the random drawing are NOT notified of their selection by email. The above procedures are explained in the DV Lottery 2012 Instructions. The "Selection of Applicants" section of the DV instructions provides information about the DV time frame and process.
For Successful DV Entrants: If you have been selected for further processing in the Diversity Visa program, after you receive instructions, you will need to demonstrate you are eligible for a diversity immigrant visa by successfully completing the next steps. When requested to do so by the Kentucky Consular Center, you will need to complete the immigrant visa application, submit required documents and forms, pay required fees, complete a medical examination, and be interviewed by a consular officer at the U.S. embassy or consulate to demonstrate you qualify for a diversity visa. Please note that the Kentucky Consular Center will provide application information (for DV-2011 selectees) online through the Entry Status Check on the E-DV website www.dvlottery.state.gov (for DV-2012 selectees).
Successful DV entrants must be eligible to receive a visa by qualifying based on education, work, and other requirements. The law and regulations require that every DV entrant must have at least a high school education or its equivalent; or two years of work experience within the past five years in an occupation requiring at least two years' training or experience.
