DV Lottery (Green Card Lottery)
The Diversity Visa program is now a yearly occurrence with the application period starting in early October every year. For information about the next application period please visit the State Department web site below.
Persons seeking to enter the lottery program must register through the designated internet website www.dvlottery.state.gov during the registration period which usually spans over two months.
The Department of State has more than tripled the number of servers hosting the registration, but nevertheless it is recommended that you register early in the registration period.
Persons submitting entries will receive a notice containing their name, date of birth, country of changeability and time/date stamp when the information has been properly registered at www.dvlottery.state.gov
Paper entries will NOT be accepted and the registration is FREE OF CHARGE, so do not use any of the “agencies” on line that either charge you or promise you a green card when using their services in connetion with the applicatio. This is a lottery!
