    Hello, I’ve been randomly selected for the DV-2014 lottery and have sent all required documents. Then I’ve sent the mail to KCC to conform mail (documents) delivery, but didn’t get answer. Do you know how long it takes to get the date and time of interview from KCC?
    Thank you in advance

      I’m not too sure of the specific time for that, but one thing I’m sure of is that you will be contacted on the next thing to do. Better still, you can contact them where you send your document to, they will surely have a contact page or form in there.
      Congratulation for being selected among millions that applied for DV – 2014.
