To clear up any confusion about the notification process for DV-2011 green card lottery winners, here's how it works:
- If YOU ARE a lottery winner, you will receive a letter in the mail from the the Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky. This letter will contain the information you need to apply for the green card. Winners are getting their letters now. Letters were first mailed at the beginning of May and will continue to go out until the beginning of July.
- If YOU ARE NOT a lottery winner, you will not receive notification of any kind.
- You can CHECK YOUR STATUS ONLINE beginning July 1, 2010. This is the second year that all entrants may check the status of their entry online. Status information for DV-2011 will be available online from July 1, 2010, until June 30, 2011.
