Can I submit more than one application to the DV-Lottery to increase my chances of being selected?

If you meet both eligibility criteria for the Diversity Visa Lottery, you are only permitted to submit ONE application to the DV-Lottery with yourself as the main applicant, USAFIS has learned. The U.S. Congress established a random lottery system to provide a fair method for randomly selecting people to have the opportunity to apply for a Diversity Visa to immigrate to the United States.


Can I participate in the DV-Lottery if I live in an eligible country, but was not born in an eligible country?

The Diversity Visa Lottery Program was created to further diversify the U.S. population, so eligibility is based upon where you were BORN, not where you currently live. Therefore, you must be BORN in an eligible country AND you must meet the education OR work experience requirements to participate in the DV-Lottery.

Photo Requirements for the U.S. Consular Interview

When you go for your Consular Interview, you will need two identical photos of yourself and each family member who is applying for a Diversity Immigrant Visa. Photos must meet the requirements of the U.S. government. USAFIS is an immigration service that helps foreign nationals who plan to the move to the United States through the DV-Lottery Program.
