Posted: 10/16/20

Every year the Department of State (“DOS”) holds a Diversity Visa Lottery, allowing about 50,000 citizens of countries that have low immigration rates to the U.S. to apply directly for an immigrant visa (green card).  The Diversity Visa Lottery is free to enter.  This year, the lottery application period is open from October 7, 2020 until 12 PM Eastern Time on November 10, 2020.  More information, including countries that are eligible and the individual requirements for education or experience, is available on the DOS website instruction page at annual instructions.
