Important Notice for Diversity Visa (DV) 2012 Entrants

PR-1220E | Date: 04/12/2012

The American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) encourages successful entrants to Diversity Visa 2012 from Taiwan to send in their required documents to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) immediately, so that an interview appointment at AIT can be scheduled before the program ends.  In order for an appointment to be scheduled with AIT, entrants must first submit the Form DSP-122 and Form DS-230 to the KCC.

AIT only has a limited number of appointments each month, including September, for Diversity Visa (DV) applicants, so it is vital that successful entrants mail these documents to the KCC very soon.  Successful entrants cannot be issued a DV after September 30, 2012, even if you have already been interviewed at AIT.

There are 50,000 DVs available worldwide for Diversity Visa 2012.  Once all of the 50,000 DV visas have been issued, the program will end.

Participants are reminded to check the status of their DV entry through Entrant Status Check www.dvlottery.state.gov, using the confirmation numbers they received when they initially submitted their applications.

Entrant Status Check is the only method by which Diversity Visa 2012 entrants are notified of their selection, provided instructions on how to proceed with their application, and notified of their immigrant visa interview appointment date and time.

Emails claiming to be from the U.S. Department of State and asking applicants to send money by mail or by services such as Western Union are fake.
