2. News About the US Government’s Diversity Visa {Green Card} Lottery Program
The U.S. Department of State has posted news about the recent Diversity Visa Lottery Program, which took place last October, 2011. The winning entrants have been selected and can be viewed at the State Department’s website. But the State Department is warning that additional winners may be selected on October 1, 2012, so they are recommending that all entrants keep their confirmation numbers.
