New Fraud Alert
Offers to provide you with a U.S. visa which do not involve appearing at a U.S. Consular Section for a visa interview are always scams. Any unsolicited offer to provide you with a U.S. visa is usually a scam, whether online or in person.
If you are the target of a scam, please report it to your local law enforcement authorities immediately, as the U.S. government cannot generally take any legal action against the offenders. However, informing the Consulate by email that you have been a victim may enable us to better assist with any later inquiries received from Indian authorities. Copies of any documents received in the scam may also facilitate such assistance.

India is not a part of the Diversity Visa (DV) program and Indian nationals are not eligible to apply. There has been a notable increase in fraudulent emails and letters sent to Diversity Immigrant Visa (DV) program (Visa Lottery) applicants, and even to individuals who have not applied for the lottery. The scammers behind these fraudulent emails and letters are posing as the U.S. government in an attempt to extract payment from DV applicants and the general public. All applicants should be familiar with information about DV scams provided by the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of State Warning. Applicants are encouraged to review the rules and procedures for the DV program so that you know what to expect, when to expect it, and from whom.
Finally, remember that DV-2012 applicants will not receive a notification letter from the U.S. government but must check their status online. The Status Check will only be provided through the Department of State secure online site, http://www.dvlottery.state.gov.
