REGISTRATION PERIOD FOR THE DV-2014 PROGRAM IS OVER NOW!
The DV Lottery 2014 Status Check will be available on the State Department's Diversity Visa web-site after May 1, 2013. Entrants will need to use their Confirmation Number, Last Name/Family Name, and Year of Birth to check the status to find out if their Diversity Visa Lottery entry was or was not selected.
The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program makes available 50,000 immigrant visas annually, drawn by random selection among all entries to persons who meet strict eligibility requirements from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States, including Montenegro.
The computer will randomly select individuals from among all qualified entries. All Diversity Visa (DV- 2014) entrants will be required to go to the E-DV website Entry Status Check to find out whether their entry has been selected in the DV lottery or to find out they have not been selected. Selectees will be notified of their selection through the Entry Status Check available starting May 1, 2013 at the E-DV website. Selectees will be directed to a confirmation page that will provide further instructions, including information on fees connected with immigration to the United States. Entry Status Check will be the ONLY means by which selectees will be notified of their selection for DV-2014. The Kentucky Consular Center will not be mailing out notification letters. Those selected in the random drawing are NOT notified of their selection by e-mail. Those individuals NOT selected will be notified of their non-selection through the web-based Entry Status Check. U.S. embassies and consulates will not provide a list of selectees. Selectees’ spouses and unmarried children under age 21 may also apply for visas to accompany or follow-to-join the principal applicant. DV-2014 visas will be issued between October 1, 2013, and September 30, 2014.
Please Note: There have been instances of fraudulent websites posing as official U.S. Government sites. Some companies posing as the U.S. Government have sought money in order to "complete" lottery entry forms. There is no charge to download and complete the Electronic Diversity Visa Entry Form.
