On May 1 2013, i logged on to the state department website and found out i’d won the DV Lottery for 2014. I was required to send it some documents to Kentucky Visa Center immediately. In the documents i was to give my bio data, level of education, dependants, address in the US etc.
I used a courier service to send the stuff stateside and after a couple of days i received a confirmation that they’d been delivered.
From then on, its a long wait for your case number to become “current” meaning the embassy in the country you registered has received your file from Kentucky and they have a scheduled an interview for you.
My case became current in April 2014, i received a notice in my email informing to check some important message on the state deparment website. My interview was scheduled for mid June. Let the preparations begin..
