i am a winner of dv 2013... i have a few questions i hope you can help me with...
1- the american embassy has closed in my country due to the unrest taking place there , so the location mentioned on my confirmation letter is a neighboring country, if for some reason this neighboring country will no longer welcome visitors from my country, will the american embassy transfer my case to another country where i can have an interview or will i miss out the interview and the visa?
2- my number is 00009xxx, when would the interview be expected to take place?
3- if i have to change the location, how early in advance should i do it? can i do it a couple of weeks before the interview date? will i have to contact KCC or the embassy where i should have the interview?
4- will every selectee get the chance to have an interview, or will this depend on the availability of the visa as they mentioned on the confirmation letter?

thanks a million for your advice

obamaobama: @pator where did u get ur fake info even the site u past does not exist till next year before the give the overall number of winner ok check this site. http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_1322.html can't fine number of selettees for dv2013 and pls stop posting wrong info and fake site
Infact,i was not cleared with KCC statement on DV-2013 because selected nos of DV-2013 has been released and still asked entrants to check back by october and the nos selected has reached limit and entrants compliant that few was selected. Read what they wrote,

F. DIVERSITY VISA LOTTERY 2013 (DV-2013) RESULTS

The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky has registered and notified the winners of the DV-2013 diversity lottery. The diversity lottery was conducted under the terms of section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act and makes available *50,000 permanent resident visas annually to persons from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. Approximately 105,628 applicants have been registered. Applicants may check the status of their entry using the confirmation number through Entrant Status Check on the website www.dvlottery.state.gov. Entrants selected may make an application for an immigrant visa. Since it is likely that some of the first *50,000 persons registered will not pursue their cases to visa issuance, this larger figure should insure that all DV-2013 numbers will be used during fiscal year 2013 (October 1, 2012 until September 30, 2013).

Applicants registered for the DV-2013 program were selected at random from 7,941,400 qualified entries (12,577,463 with derivatives) received during the 30-day application period that ran from noon, Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, until noon, Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, November 5, 2011. The visas have been apportioned among six geographic regions with a maximum of seven percent available to persons born in any single country. During the visa interview, principal applicants must provide proof of a high school education or its equivalent, or show two years of work experience in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience within the past five years. Those selected will need to act on their immigrant visa applications quickly. Applicants should follow the instructions provided on the website www.dvlottery.state.gov.

Registrants living legally in the United States who wish to apply for adjustment of their status must contact the USCIS for information on the requirements and procedures. Once the total *50,000 visa numbers have been used, the program for fiscal year 2013 will end. Selected applicants who do not receive visas by September 30, 2013 will derive no further benefit from their DV-2013 registration. Similarly, spouses and children accompanying or following to join DV-2013 principal applicants are only entitled to derivative diversity visa status until September 30, 2013.

Dates for the DV-2014 program registration period will be widely publicized in the coming months. Those interested in entering the DV-2014 program should check the Department of State’s Visa web page for more details in September.

* The Nicaraguan and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) passed by Congress

in November 1997 stipulated that up to 5,000 of the 55,000 annually-allocated diversity visas be made available for use under the NACARA program. The reduction of the limit of available visas to 50,000 began with DV-2000.

The following is the statistical breakdown by foreign-state chargeability of those registered for the DV-2013 program:
AFRICA
ALGERIA 2,161 GABON 38 SAO TOME & PRINCIPE 0
ANGOLA 47 GAMBIA, THE 85 SENEGAL 394
BENIN 809 GHANA 5,105 SEYCHELLES 0
BOTSWANA 18 GUINEA 1,350 SIERRA LEONE 2,516
BURKINA FASO 296 GUINEA-BISSAU 25 SOMALIA 197
BURUNDI 94 KENYA 4,410 SOUTH AFRICA 956
CAMEROON 3,858 LESOTHO 6 SOUTH SUDAN 5
CAPE VERDE 25 LIBERIA 1,916 SUDAN 74 NIGERIA 6,218

The embassy will notify you on the new location but i would advice you send a mail to them to let them know you cant visit the other country.

2- my number is 00009xxx, when would the interview be expected to take place?

Your continent will determine this but i guess before Dec 2012

3- if i have to change the location, how early in advance should i do it? can i do it a couple of weeks before the interview date? will i have to contact KCC or the embassy where i should have the interview?
mail KCC first and lets know thier reaction before you take next step

4- will every selectee get the chance to have an interview, or will this depend on the availability of the visa as they mentioned on the confirmation letter?

Yes every selectee that returns his or her forms back to KCC will have interview

if visa has finish, not all the selectee will be interview. For instance DV 2012 visa bulletin say africa is current for June on-ward. Meaning no more interview for dv 12 cos no more visa. Also the last case number that got interview in nigeria is 25000 down-ward. Those from 25000 and something up-ward will not be interview. I can be corrected if your case number is 25000 + for dv 12 and you are interview please proof me wrong.

I'm really excited because I was selected for further processing in the 2013 DV Lottery. I feel like I waited forever for the results, but good things come to those who wait.

Anyhoo.
Once I have mailed or is it through email address DSP 122 and DS230 to the KCC, how long is the wait until the next stage (which I guess is the visa interview)?

I'm really sorry if this question is posted somewhere else!

Oh, and if anyone has any tips/advice for me regarding the process from this point, please let me know.
Pls i need follow up.......................

Cheers!!

Congrats bro. Your interview date depends on your case number. If you can give idea of your case number we will be able to give you idea of when you will likely be called for interview. I will also encourage you to read through the DV 2012 thread you will learn so much as per the process and how to prepare for your interview.
