US DV 2014 Winners- Kenya 6th in Africa with highest Selected Entrants
The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky has registered and notified the winners of the DV-2014 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 140,660 applicants have been registered and notified and may now 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-2014 numbers will be used during fiscal year 2014 (October 1, 2013 until September 30, 2014).
The following is the statistical breakdown by foreign-state chargeability of those registered for the DV-2014 program:
|BOTSWANA||19||GHANA||3,945||SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE||0|
|CENTRAL AFRICAN REP.||45||LIBERIA||3,809||SOUTH AFRICA||1,038|
