The American EDV results announced

The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky has registered and notified the winners of the DV-2008 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 96,000 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-2008 numbers will be used during fiscal year 2008 (October 1, 2007 until September 30, 2008).
-2562 people from Nepal have won the EDV lottery 2008. It is the second largest numbers comes after Bangladesh (5983) in Asia. The largest number of EDV lottery winners come from Nigeria (8773). Even 1462 people from Germany, 382 from Japan, 58 from Denmark, 603 from France, 123 from Netherlands, 132 from Switzerland has won the EDV lotteries this year. The figure shows the big charming for American EDV lottery or American citizenship not only from developing countries but also from developed countries in the world.
