Green Card DV Lottery-2015 Entrants? Check If You have Won!

Posted by Karen-Lee Pollak on Fri, May 09, 2014 @ 9:00 AM

The Kentucky Consular Center in Kentucky has registered and notified the winners of the DV-2015 diversity lottery.  The diversity lottery makes available *50,000 permanent resident visas annually to persons from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.  Approximately 125,514 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-2015 numbers will be used during fiscal year 2015 (October 1, 2014 until September 30, 2015).
