Online registration for the 2014 Diversity Visa Program (DV-2014) will begin on Tuesday, 10/2/12 at 12:00 noon EDT & conclude on Saturday, 11/3/12 at 12:00 noon, EDT. Instructions for the DV-2014 Program are not yet available.
The annual DV program makes diversity immigrant visas available to persons meeting the simple, but strict, eligibility requirements. A computer-generated random lottery drawing chooses selectees for diversity visas. The visas, however, are distributed among six geographic regions with a greater number of visas going to regions with lower rates of immigration, and with no visas going to nationals of countries sending more than 50,000 immigrants to the U.S. over the period of the past five years. Within each region, no one country may receive more than seven percent of the available Diversity Visas in any one year.
If you have been selected for the DV lottery, and need assistance, please contact the immigration lawyers of Zneimer & Zneimer PC.
