Thread: DV2005 notice ends?

  1. #1
    I am wondering if INS already announced that the notice for all DV2005 winners were completed. I have not received it yet, so does that mean I did not win?

    Excuse me, does that mean that all winners were notified by now?

  5. #5
    No it means you should keep waiting upto end of August. I would give it up to end of Sept because depending on where you are located, mail should take max 1 month to get there.

    Notification process ends approx end of August,according to this article.

    Diversity Visa Lottery 2005 (DV-2005) Results


    The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky, has registered and
    notified the winners of the DV-2005 diversity lottery. The diversity lottery
    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 100,000 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-2005 numbers will be used during
    fiscal year 2005 (October 1, 2004 until September 30, 2005).

    Applicants registered for the DV-2005 program were selected at random from
    more than 9.5 million qualified entries received during the 60-day application
    period that ran from 12:00 AM on November 1, 2003, until midnight, December 30,
    2003. 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 in their
    notification letter and must fully complete the information requested.

    Registrants living legally in the United States who wish to apply for
    adjustment of their status must contact the Bureau of 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 2005
    will end. Selected applicants who do not receive visas by September 30, 2005
    will derive no further benefit from their DV-2005 registration. Similarly,
    spouses and children accompanying or following to join DV-2005 principal
    applicants are entitled to derivative diversity visa status only until
    September 30, 2005.

    Only participants in the DV-2005 program who were selected for further
    processing have been notified. Those who have not received notification were
    not selected. They may try for the upcoming DV-2006 lottery if they wish. The
    dates for the registration period for the DV-2006 lottery program will be
    widely publicized during August 2004.

    * The Nicaraguan and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) 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 NACARA program. The
    reduction of the limit of available visas to 50,000 began with DV-2000.
