We created this application as a solution to the harsh photo requirements of the USA Diversity Visa application. It is a response to millions of applicants who are as frustrated as we are every October and November when the Diversity Visa application begins and taking the perfect photo is close to impossible. The Visa Lottery Photo app is a hassle free solution to this issue.
The diversity visa program known as the USA Green Card Lottery is a free application for citizens from countries with low immigration rates who desire to obtain a green card or the permanent residency and the right to work in the United States of America.
The program is sponsored every year by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and it awards 50000 Green Cards to applicants based on a random selection or lottery.
Each year, the U.S. Department of State runs the Diversity Visa Lottery Program. That program lets people from some countries apply to be a "Lawful Permanent Resident." That is what many people call "getting a Green Card."
You can enter the lottery if you are from an eligible country and you meet the educational or work requirements. If your entry is picked, you get the chance to apply to be a Lawful Permanent Resident.
But dishonest people might try to trick you. Learn the facts about the Diversity Visa Lottery Program. It can help you avoid these scams.
How do I enter the Diversity Visa Lottery?
This is what you need to know:
You can enter the Diversity Visa Lottery once a year. The Lottery is open for about a month in the autumn, usually October through November.
There is only one place to enter the Diversity Visa Lottery: dvlottery.state.gov. This State Department website (USCIS) has a form where you:
give information about yourself, your spouse, and your children under 21
submit digital photos of yourselves (this is a difficult photo to take, but with the Visa Lottery Photo app, it's going to be easier than ever)
It is free to enter the Diversity Visa Lottery.
You can enter once each year. If you enter the Diversity Visa Lottery more than once in a year, your entries will not count. Your spouse can enter separately if he or she qualifies.
If your entry is picked, you can include your spouse on your application, and children if they are single and under 21.
What happens after I enter the Diversity Visa Lottery?
You enter the Diversity Visa Lottery at dvlottery.state.gov. Then the State Department (USCIS) gives you a confirmation number. Keep that number safe. You will need it to check your status.
Diversity Visa Lottery winners are picked at random by a computer. There is no way to increase your chance of being picked.
You can find out your status only at dvlottery.state.gov. The State Department (USCIS) will never send you a letter or email to say you won. If you see that kind of message, it is a scam.
If your entry is picked, you will have to pay a fee. You pay it only when you go to the U.S. embassy or consulate for your appointment. The U.S. government or USCIS will never ask you to send money in advance by check, money order, or wire transfer.
