Did you know that you can help your relatives and friends who are as far away as in Kenya try their luck in applying for a US Green Card ?  This is so especially because the whole process is now done online.

The State Department began accepting online registrations for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Diversity Visa (DV) lottery on October 5, 2022 at noon EDT. Foreign nationals who wish to enter the lottery have until Tuesday, November 8, 2022 at noon EST to file online.

At a glance

  • Entrants have until Tuesday, November 8, 2022 at noon EST to register online at the State Department’s official lottery website.
  • Lottery applications must conform to the State Department’s strict requirements.

A closer look

For FY 2024, the DV lottery program will make up to 55,000 green card numbers available through random selection. FY 2024 lottery results will be announced in May 2023. Foreign nationals selected in the lottery can submit their green card applications starting on October 1, 2023.

Who is eligible to enter the lottery?

  • The DV lottery is open to natives of countries that have historically low rates of immigration to the United States – like Kenya.
  • Individuals from countries with high rates of U.S. immigration are not eligible to register.
    • This year, those born in the following countries are ineligible: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (including Hong Kong SAR), Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam.
    • Individuals born in Macau SAR and Taiwan can participate.
    • Those who cannot register because their country of birth is excluded may be able to qualify through a spouse who was born in an eligible country or, in certain circumstances, through a parent’s country of birth.
  • Entrants must have at least a high school education (or equivalent) or two years of qualifying work experience within the past five years.

Registering for the lottery

  • Entrants must submit an online form and a digital photo through the official DV lottery website. DV lottery applicants may include a spouse and children in their entry.
  • Only one entry is permitted per person. If there are multiple registrations on behalf of one person, all of them are disqualified.
  • Applicants must carefully follow the State Department’s official lottery instructions. Lottery entries and digital photos that do not precisely conform to the instructions will be disqualified.
  • Once the application is accepted, applicants will receive a confirmation number, which can be used to check the status of their application.

How lottery winners are chosen and notified

The State Department chooses lottery winners by random computer selection. Results will be published starting May 6, 2023 through September 30, 2024, on the official DV lottery entry status website.

Foreign nationals can learn whether they were selected only by visiting the official DV website and entering their confirmation number. The State Department does not notify entrants by letter, e-mail, fax or telephone. The official website is the only legitimate source of lottery results.
