Green Card Lottery Results 2011 (DV-2011)

The green card lottery (diversity visa lottery) winners are starting to be announced for Dv-2011 held online from October to December in 2009. So as we did last year we thought we do a general announcement post as well answer a couple of common questions we received over the past 12 monts.

You should note that being selected as a winner does not guarantee you a green card as you must pass some additional criteria as well in the application process. The actual DV-2011 visas will be issued between the period of October 1, 2010, and September 30, 2011. Applicants must obtain the diversity visa or adjust status by the end of the fiscal year.

Unfortunately those who missed out on the green card and permanent residency will NOT receive any notification but for the second year running, you will be able to check the status of their entry through the E-DV website.
You must have kept the confirmation page information from when you entered the DV Lottery between October and December 2009. The Status information for DV-2011 lotter is available online from July 1, 2010, until June 30, 2011.

Between May and July 2010 results should be sent out to the lucky applicants with an official letter from the U.S. Department of State Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky. All notifications are by mail to your nominated address and you should note that there is NOT any email notification. It seems like already people have started receiving their winning letters so hopefully this will be the case for all of you that read this post and applied!

The notification letters will have additional instructions, including information about additional forms and other documentation required as well as immigrant visa application fees.

The Interviews for the DV-2010 visa lottery program begin in October 2009 and foreigners who applied overseas will receive an appointment letter from the Kentucky Consular Center about 5 weeks before the scheduled appointment.

A couple of additional points to note.

1. Be patient with receiving the 2nd letter if you have received the first as sometime the mail is slow. The only people that you can contact that will give you any insightful information if you are a winner and received the first letter is the KCC.

2. Check the US government websites to see the current dates for your number if you are a winner

3. If you were a child on a winner’s application and since turned 21 after being 20 at the time of application, you are still eligible as your age is frozen. However you must take up the green card within a year as otherwise you will be ineligible

4. High School education or its equivalent as per the requirements of the primary applicant means the successful completion of a twelve year course of elementary/primary and secondary education in the U.S. or successful completion in another county of a formal course of elementary/primary and secondary education that is comparable to the US 12 year education system.

5. If you are currently residing in the US on another non-immigrant visa, you are able to adjust your status within the US if you are a winner

Also FYI, the Green Card Lottery (DV-2012) will begin in October 2009 for those wanting to enter this year with more information about this lottery due by September.

Good Luck

  1. Hi,

    I am one of the applicants for the 2011 diversity visa lottery and was wondering if any winning applicants had received their letter of offer yet. I believe they normally arrive towards the end of May beginning of June.

    Kind regards,


  2. Hi Mike,
    Seeing comments here from Kenya to Europe to foreigners who are currently within the US since early May says that many winners have already been notified by mail.

  3. Thanks CJ.

    I am in Dublin, Ireland. Will be keeping my fingers crossed and watching the post box for the next few weeks.


  4. My spouse is the winner of DV 2011 with case No. 2011AF00025xxx and we filled the forms and sent to KCC. But I am hasitated the date and month (not the year) of birth may be filled wrongly on the first EDV entrance. But now we filled the forms with the correct date and month. This mistakes usually occured due to the improper records of the birth date in rural part of my country (Ethiopia). Is such a mistake make me disqualify?


  5. I play 2010 visa lottery please when is Results is coming out?

  6. I am Ghanaian and a friend of my won the lottery 2years ago and now he is in the US. I posted my photos and particulars to him to proses for me. I received a call from him on may this year that I have won the lottery, so I should pay something to an agent who processed the form before I can even get assessed to my winning document since he is having the confirmation code.please what can you do on this matter to retrieve the document from the second holder and to be sure if I am truly a winner.

  7. Maxwell,

    While I don’t know your friend it sounds to me that what you are beign told had ‘scam’ written all over. I would suggest you pay nothing until you have been sent the confirmation code and have verified it for yourself online after July 1st.


  8. Hi Maxwell,
    I would never pay anyone anything unless you can confirm on the website with your confirmation number. There are so many Green Card Lottery Scams and because the lottery is completely free, there is no need to pay anyone money for anything.
    There is nothing I can say to help you get your confirmation number as outside of contacting a lawyer and threatening to sue the person unless they give it to you, there is not much that can be done.

  9. Hi Dereje,
    You can explain fully the nature of your birth date discrepancy in your Interview after you receive the 2nd letter.

  10. Hi CJ

    Thanks a lot for your advise. That means we can get the the 2nd letter or this will not be the reason to get the 2nd letter. We will be ready to explain fully the nature of the discrepancy at the time of interview.

    thanks and best regards

  11. Please, I need your help ! I can’t find the fee of DV program !!

  12. Hi ! would u please tell me ? How can i search my confirmation number in DV 2011 result …

  13. I checked through the DV website and found that I have been selected for DV-2011. But the fact is that I’m still under 18 and going to be 18 only in January, 2011 though I’ve completed high school education, and I’m doing the study at College currently. So I’m wondering if I would be disqualified for further processing because of being under age. So far, I havn’t received any notification letter by mail.

  14. Please, I need your help ! I can’t find the fee of DV program !!
    would u please tell me ? How can i search my confirmation number in DV 2011 result … thank.

  15. hello everyone
    I’m Heinn from Burma and I was selected as DV 2011 according to I still haven’t got my selectee letter by postal mail and I tried to contact KCC by email on Aug 1 2010 with providing my confirmation no , full name, date of birth and country, .But they reply with following as
    “Thank you for your inquiry,
    You must visit the Department of State website at where you will find instructions and forms for completing the required processing steps. Once your forms have been received, and your selection has been confirmed, your case will continue processing.
    The omission of your case number on the forms will not affect the processing of your case. It is not necessary to submit additional forms to amend this mistake.
    The failure to include the bar code sheet with your forms will not affect the processing of your case. It is not necessary to submit the bar code sheet to KCC if you have already sent your forms.”
    So what do they mean that? I hoped they would send to me by email but how can they reply with that?
    Please explain me
