DV 2014 results is now available in the official web site. The result checking facility was opened on 01 May 2013. Those who had participated in the American visa lottery must keep their confirmation number with them where the U.S State Department had advised to keep the 2014 confirmation number till 30th September 2014.
UP to DV 2011, the selected winners used to get the winning notification through the postal ail from the KCC.
From the DV 2012 visa lottery program the KCC requested the entire participants to check their results in the official web site of the diversity visa lottery program. There you will be requested to enter your name, confirmation number and the year of birth. If the entered details are matching with the submitted entry information, the web page will display whether you are selected for the program or not as the online result.
There is no limit of the number of times for you to check your selection results in the online site.
As there may be another name selection in the month of October 2013, it is better to check your results once again in the results checking page in the month of October for the current program.
2014 green card lottery results will not be announced through email, postal mail, telephone or fax. If you get any dv lottery winner selection announcement through one of these method double check it as it may be a scam one.
If you are selected as a winner follows the instructions given in the PC screen. If you found out that you are not selected in the 2014 green card lottery results then you can prepare your self to apply for the next coming visa lottery program in the year 2013 through the DV 2015 diversity visa lottery program. If some one gives you a copy of the winning notification or a scanned copy don't believe it. Ask them to show you the results in the web site after entering your confirmation number, name and year of birth while you are seeing it.
U.S Embassies or U.S Consular offices don't have the winners name list. So don't disturb them by asking for the winners name list.
The 2014 green card lottery confirmation number starts with 2014 and it will have 16 digits. If you miss even one digit of the confirmation number, it won't work.
Don't try to check your results on the very first day as there will be a big rush and it will be difficult for you to find the web site. The facility will provide 2014 results till 30th September 2014.
