05 Jun US State Dept. Updates Diversity Visa 2024 Guidance on Document Submission
The Department of State (DOS) announced on May 30, 2023, that for the Diversity Visa (DV) program for fiscal year 2024 (DV-2024) and onward, selectees only need initially to submit to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) the DS-260 immigrant visa application form for themselves and any accompanying family members. Once a DS-260 is received from the selectee, KCC will review it for completeness and process the data contained in both the application and the entry. After that, the case will be eligible to be scheduled for a visa interview if the selectee’s visa case number is current as reflected in the Visa Bulletin, DOS said.
All supporting documents for DV-2024 selectees will be collected and evaluated in connection with the interview at the embassy or consulate where the visa application is made. DOS said it strongly encourages applicants to be prepared to demonstrate eligibility for the visa at the time of interview by bringing all required documents, which differ by country.
