55,000 diversity immigrant visas are made available every year, by the US Congress through the Green Card lottery program. If you seek to obtain a Green Card through Green Card lottery 2014, submit your online entry between Tuesday, 2nd October, 2012 and Saturday, 3rd November, 2012. It is well known that this official program, conducted annually, provides up to 55,000 diversity visas to people from various eligible countries and you could also be a lucky winner to win a Green Card if you take part in this lottery program. Hence, it is wise to file your entry as soon as possible because, the demand may increase during the last week of the registration period, which may lead to delays.
To participate in the diversity visa lottery program, you need to be a national of an eligible country. Some countries are ineligible because those countries had sent more number of immigrants to the United States over the past few years and the list of ineligible countries changes every year. Citizens of the following countries may not enter DV-2014.
Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its Dependent Territories and Vietnam.
Moreover, if you plan to enter Green Card lottery 2014, you will have to make sure that you meet certain simple and strict education and work experience requirements. You need to hold a 12 year high school certificate or you must have the required experience in a Green Card lottery qualifying occupation. To enter this program, you must submit only one application and do not forget to list the names of all your eligible dependents. Eligible dependents do not include your parents and siblings. You may file an application even if you had entered the lottery program in the previous years and if you were not lucky enough to win the lottery.
Winners of the DV lottery program will be chosen arbitrarily, by a computer. Only the selected winners who meet all the eligibility requirements under the US immigration laws, will be granted immigrant visas and remember that winning the lottery alone does not guarantee that you will immigrate to the United States. If you believe that you meet the eligibility requirements, you may enter Green Card lottery 2014 and win a Green Card to immigrate to the United States.
