Entering the 2015 DV Lottery

Posted on Wednesday, October 9, 2013


The 2015 DV Lottery is open from October 1, 2013 and close on November 2, 2013. Selectees will be notified in early May of 2014 and those who qualify must complete their visa processing by September 30, 2014.

For the third year in a row, natives of Poland are eligible for the lottery.

Please note that it is the applicant’s country of birth rather than country of nationality that governs eligibility for the diversity visa program. This year, those born in the following countries are not eligible for the lottery:

  Bangladesh   India  
  Brazil   Jamaica  
  Canada   Mexico  
  Mainland China   Pakistan  
  Colombia   Peru  
  Dominican Republic   Philippines  
  Ecuador   South Korea  
  El Salvador   U.K. (except N. Ireland)  
  Haiti   Vietnam  

For over 20 years, Immigration Law Associates has offered expert assistance to eligible individuals and their family members in filing complete and accurate lottery applications. For their convenience, our attorneys and staff speak English, Polish, Farsi, Korean, Spanish and Hebrew. Many of our clients are local, but we are also able to file entries on behalf of those living abroad.
