How to apply?
The following information is needed in completing your application:
Name, last name, gender, birth date, city and country of birth, email address and phone number, Passport number, Country of Issuance, the Expiration date of Passport, education degree, marital status, and the children’s information if you have.
You can apply online by filling the online application form that is available only on the DV lottery official website.
We strongly encourage you to complete the entry form yourself, without a “visa consultant,” “visa agent,” or other facilitator who offers to help. If someone helps you, you should be present when your entry is prepared so that you can provide the correct answers to the questions and retain your unique confirmation number and a printout of your confirmation screen. It is extremely important that you retain the printout of your confirmation page and unique confirmation number. Unscrupulous visa facilitators have been known to assist entrants with their entries, retain the confirmation page printout, and then demand more money in exchange for the confirmation number. Without this information, you will not be able to access the online system that informs you of your entry status. Be wary if someone offers to keep this information for you. You also should retain access to the email account listed in your E-DV entry.
The result of US Diversity Visa (DV) 2023 will be announced on May 7th 2022 noon US time.
