Important Notice for Diversity Visa (DV)  2013 Entrants:  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  2013 ends on September 30, 2013.  In addition, if all of the 50,000 DV visas have been issued before that date, the program will end.  Successful entrants should act now.  DV- 2013 visas cannot be issued after September 30,  2013.  Participants are reminded to check the status of their DV entry through Entrant Status Check, using the confirmation numbers they received when they initially submitted their applications.

Please refer to the instructions you received on the entrant status check website for directions on submitting your documents.
