Today’s blog update will be a quick roundup of the Diversity Visa Lottery in the US.
Recently, the Department of State delivered directions for Diversity Visa applicants chosen for the fiscal year 2023. These applicants are instructed to present the DS-260 immigrant visa application form to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) and any accompanying family members.
Following the DS-260 immigrant visa application submission, the Kentucky Consular Center will examine it for completeness and put the application in a queue to be scheduled for an in-person visa interview, given that the applicant’s priority date is current on the Visa Bulletin.
At the moment, this will be the process needed from the Diversity Visa selectees for the fiscal year 2023.
The Kentucky Consular Center cautions applicants not to provide any other obligated supporting documents except the filled DS-260 application. This is because all supporting documentation for DV-2023 selectees will be gathered and assessed during the time of the applicant’s in-person visa interview at the embassy or consulate where the visa application was submitted.
Chosen applicants must cautiously review the Department of State website for the essential supporting documentation they must carry to the scheduled interview to confirm eligibility for an immigrant visa. Individuals unsure of the conditions should regard working with a professional attorney for assistance.
The Department of State also warns selectees that negligence in providing all mandated supporting documents to the embassy or consulate may avert applicants from confirming their eligibility for the visa and lead to the refusal of the visa application.
Rejections due to the lack of documentation can be prevailed by furnishing missing documents to the Consular section later. However, candidates should be ready for the visa interview and compile all necessary documentation to evade delays.
