After you have completed the steps on the Diversity Visa Process on usvisas.state.gov, including submitting the required immigrant visa application form (DS-260), you may receive an email from the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) to let you know that an interview has been scheduled for you. The e-mail will instruct you to log into the Entrant Status Check on the Electronic Diversity Visa (E-DV) website, using your DV entry confirmation number, to view the date, time and location of your interview.
You can learn more about the interview process on usvisas.state.gov.
The lottery is free to enter and selected applicants will pay required fees at their visa interview. For applicants obtaining a visa under the Diversity Visa Lottery, the fee of $330 per person is to be paid in U.S. dollars or the equivalent in FCFA. Please note that the fee is non-refundable.
