US Green Card Lottery DV-2009 Results

The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky has registered and notified the winners of the DV-2009 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 99,600 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-2009 numbers will be used during fiscal year 2009 (October 1, 2008 until September 30, 2009).

Applicants registered for the DV-2009 program were selected at random from over 9.1 million qualified entries received during the 60-day application period that ran from noon on October 3, 2007, until noon, December 2, 2007. 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 2009 will end. Selected applicants who do not receive visas by September 30, 2009 will derive no further benefit from their DV-2009 registration. Similarly, spouses and children accompanying or following to join DV-2009 principal applicants are only entitled to derivative diversity visa status until September 30, 2009.

Only participants in the DV-2009 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-2015 lottery if they wish. The dates for the registration period for the DV-2015 lottery program will be between October 2, 2013, and noon, Eastern Standard Time (EST) (GMT-5), November 3, 2013.

 * 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.
