The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky has registered and notified the winners of the DV-2013 Diversity Visa Program. The program was conducted under the terms of section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act and makes available *50,000 permanent resident visas annually to persons from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. Approximately 105,628 applicants have been registered and notified and may now make an application for an immigrant visa. Since it is likely that some of the first *50,000 persons registered will not pursue their cases to visa issuance, this larger figure should insure that all DV-2013 numbers will be used during fiscal year 2013 (October 1, 2012 until September 30, 2013).

Applicants registered for the DV-2013 program were selected at random from the approximately 7,941,400 qualified entries received (12,577,463 with derivatives). The visas have been apportioned among six geographic regions with a maximum of seven percent available to persons born in any single country. During the visa interview, principal applicants must provide proof of a high school education or its equivalent, or show two years of work experience in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience within the past five years. Those selected will need to act on their immigrant visa applications quickly. Applicants should follow the instructions provided on the website www.dvlottery.state.gov.

Registrants living legally in the United States who wish to apply for adjustment of their status must contact U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for information on the requirements and procedures. Once the total *50,000 visa numbers have been used, the program for fiscal year 2013 will end. Selected applicants who do not receive visas by September 30, 2013 will derive no further benefit from their DV-2013 registration. Similarly, spouses and children accompanying or following to join DV-2013 principal applicants are only entitled to derivative diversity visa status until September 30, 2013.

Only participants in the DV-2013 program who were selected for further processing have been notified. Those who have not received notification were not selected. They may submit an application for the upcoming DV-2014 lottery.

*The Nicaraguan and Central American Relief Act (NCARA) passed by Congress in November 1997 stipulated that up to 5,000 of the 55,000 annually-allocated diversity visas be made available for use under the NCARA program. The reduction of the limit of available visas to 50,000 began with DV-2000.

The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky has registered and notified the winners of the DV-2014 Diversity Visa Program. The program was conducted under the terms of section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act and makes available *50,000 permanent resident visas annually to persons from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. Approximately 140,660 applicants have been registered and notified and may now make an application for an immigrant visa. Since it is likely that some of the first *50,000 persons registered will not pursue their cases to visa issuance, this larger figure should insure that all DV-2014 numbers will be used during fiscal year 2014 (October 1, 2013 until September 30, 2014).

Applicants registered for the DV-2014 program were selected at random from the approximately 9,374,191 qualified entries received (14,633,767 with derivatives). The visas have been apportioned among six geographic regions with a maximum of seven percent available to persons born in any single country. During the visa interview, principal applicants must provide proof of a high school education or its equivalent, or show two years of work experience in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience within the past five years.

The deadline for submission of entries to the DV-2015 program was November 2, 2013.

On an unpublicized date following the end of this year's visa program period, a computer will randomly select applications from among all the qualified applications received. If your application is selected, you will be sent a notification letter that provides further instructions and contains information on fees connected with immigration to the United States. (Spouses and unmarried children of successful applicants under age 21 may also apply for visas to accompany or follow to join the successful applicant.) Selected applicants who are living abroad will be instructed to file a formal application at the nearest US consular office; those already living in the US will be instructed to apply at the nearest branch of the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services for a change of status. Results will be available starting in May 2014. US embassies and consulates will not be able to provide a list of successful applicants. DV-2015 visas will be issued between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015.

50,000 DV visas are available in Fiscal Year 2015, but more than that number of applicants will be selected in the program drawing. A total of about 140,000 applicants, both principal applicants and their spouses and children, will be selected. Since it is likely that some of the first 50,000 applicants who are selected will not pursue their cases to visa issuance, this larger figure will ensure the use of all available DV-2015 visas, but it also risks some registrants being left out. Being selected in the visa program does not automatically guarantee issuance of a visa. All applicants that are selected will be informed promptly of their selection. Each month, visas will be issued (visa number availability permitting) to those applicants who have appropriately responded to their notification and are ready for issuance during that month. Once all of the Fiscal Year 2015 visas have been issued, the program for the year will end. Therefore, selected applicants must be prepared to act immediately when informed of their successful visa program entries. Processing of entries and issuance of diversity visas to successful applicants and their eligible family members must occur by September 30, 2015. Under no circumstances can diversity visas be issued or adjustments approved after this date, nor can family members obtain diversity visas to follow to join the applicant in the US after this date.

Official US Government Program

The congressionally mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is administered on an annual basis by the Department of State and conducted based on United States law, specifically Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). This law provides for a class of immigrants known as “diversity immigrants,” with visas made available to persons from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States. The annual DV program makes 50,000 visas available to persons meeting simple, but strict, eligibility requirements. A computer-generated, random drawing chooses selectees for DVs. The visas are distributed among six geographic regions, and within each region, no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year. Visas are allocated to nationals of countries with historically lower rates of US immigration. Nationals of countries who have sent more than 50,000 immigrants to the United States over the past five years are not eligible to apply for the Diversity Visa program. The Department of State implemented the electronic registration system beginning with DV-2005 in order to make the DV process more efficient and secure. The Department utilizes special technology and other means to identify those who commit fraud for the purposes of illegal immigration or those who submit multiple entries.
