Special Immigration Alert: 2015 Diversity Visa Lottery Begins on October 1, 2013, and Ends on November 2, 2013

The Department of State ("DOS") has announced the registration period for the DV-2015 Diversity Visa ("DV-2015") lottery. It will begin on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. EDT (GMT-4), and will conclude on Saturday, November 2, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. EDT (GMT-4).

We strongly recommend that applicants not wait until the last week of this registration period to enter because heavy demands may result in website delays. No entries will be accepted after 12:00 p.m. EDT on November 2, 2013. During the registration period, information, instructions, and the Electronic Diversity Visa Entry Form for the DV-2015 lottery will be available at www.dvlottery.state.gov.

Foreign nationals considering filling out a DV-2015 application should carefully review the eligibility requirements and instructions on the DOS website. Each eligible applicant can submit only one application to the DV-2015 lottery. To maximize this opportunity, however, each eligible family member (child or spouse) is considered a separate applicant and can submit his or her own application.


DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
