Green Card Lottery Winner Notification

First of all: If you did play the Green Card lottery: good luck!

I hope besides from all the internet isues of the last few days with the Secretary of State’s website you did file on time today.

A refresher: This is the hint from their website – as recent as yesterday:
We are currently experiencing intermittent problems with all versions of the Safari and Google Chrome browsers. Suggested browsers are Internet Explorer and Firefox. Nothing can be added at this time. If your application does not work, you may want to refile using a different browser.

And today even Firefox did not work.

However at this time: If the website did stop you from entering the data and you thus did not make the deadline, please contact me. We will review the technial details and try to help you.

After 12 noon today EST all chances to apply and to “play” in the lottery are over now. But how about the winners? How will you be notified?

Diversity Visa lottery applicants selected are notified by mail between May and July of the next year, following DV Online entry. Lottery entrants selected are provided further instructions, including information on fees connected with immigration to the U.S.

Those selected in the random drawing are NOT notified by email. Those individuals NOT selected will NOT receive any notification.

The Diversity Visa Lottery website “Selection of Applicants” section provides information about the DV timeframe and process.

Past Diversity Visa Lottery Results can be found here. If you have any questions, please contact Reinhard von Hennigs rvh @ bdhlaw . net or call us at the Charlotte, NC office +1 (704) 333 5230.
