Have you checked your E-DV-2012 lottery chance?

11 May

Entrants who completed online DV-2012 entries through the official website can check the status of their entries by returning to the website at http://www.dvlottery.state.gov on or after May 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012.
Important Notice: 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 http://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..
Entry Status Check will be the ONLY means by which DV lottery winners/selectees will be notified of their selection for DV-2012. Additionally, 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.
In DV-2011,last year 5,200 Ethiopians won the lottery, but not sure how many of them arrived in the Promised Land.
You must retain your confirmation number in order to check your entry status using the internet. You may check back at this link http://www.dvlottery.state.gov/ESC/ between May 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 to determine whether your entry was selected for further processing in the 2012 DV Lottery. You will be required to enter your confirmation number in combination with other personal information in order to check on your entry status.
The web is down due to unknown reasons and displays the following message

“We are experiencing technical difficulties at this time”

Donot give up, try tomorrow. You might scream loudly on your pc Screen with joy. Good Luck!


Updated: The joy of the 22000 that had been notified of having won the DV2012 lottery has turned out to be short-lived, due to glitch which was followed by litigation ,hearing and so on. Strong mottos’ and youtube video crying about ’22,000 winners cannot be ignored’ are escalating. What ever the outcomes of the 22,000 ‘winners’,  for July 15, when DV-2012 results of the new selection process will be available on-line. Good Luck again.

In a few hours you can check online if you are a DV-2012 winner or not.


Updated 16/07/2011: Based on the information i have provided, my Entry HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED for further processing for the 2012 Electronic Diversity Visa program.
Have you Checked out yours?????????????

      Dear Kolawole,
      DV 2013 is the next American visa lottery program (Green card Lottery) that is going to accept online entries through the E-DV application form this year for the fiscal year 2013 which is going to provide 50,000 immigrant visas to eligible country people who are lucky and meet all the education/work experience.

      You submit your online application in the submission period.
      KCC will select and allow the entire applicants to check their status from the month of May 2012.
      Selected winners follow the web information and send their duly filled forms to the KCC.
      Winners will be called for the interviews according to their case numbers from 1st of October 2012.
      4A. Selected winners living in the USA can contact the USCIS office to change their status once their case numbers are current for any given month.
      Winners who have received their U.S immigrant visas under the diversity visa program must use it to enter the USA before it expires.(Normally the visas are valid for 6 months.)

    I leave a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a site or I have something to
    contribute to the conversation. Usually it is caused by
    the fire communicated in the article I read. And on this
    article Have you checked your E-DV-2012 lottery chance?
    | Jontambek’s Blog. I was actually moved enough to drop a comment 🙂 I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t
    mind. Is it simply me or does it look like like a few of the remarks come
    across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I
    would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list
    all of your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  71. Whats up! I just wish to give an enormous thumbs up for the nice info you might have right here on this
    post. I shall be coming again to your blog for more soon.
