This year’s Diversity Visa Lottery application period starts on 10/4/2016 and ends 11/7/2016. The visa lottery is intended to introduce diversity into our immigration system by providing nationals of certain lower volume countries with a way to immigrate to the U.S. Numbers are limited so file your application early! We are here to answer any questions that you have about the process. Additional information can be found here: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/immigrate/diversity-visa/instructions.html.
