2014 Diversity Visa program now open
Every year the U.S. Government gives 50,000 diversity visas (“green cards”) through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery (also known as the “Green Card Lottery,” “U.S. Visa Lottery,” or the “U.S. Immigration Lottery”). The application, as well as very specific instructions, can be accessed at: https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/
The lottery closes at 12 p.m. EDT (GMT -4) on Nov. 3, 2012. The U.S. Department of State does not recommend waiting until the last minute to apply.
