Diversity Visa Lottery Registration Begins

The Department of State recently announced that applications for the 2008 Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery will be accepted between Wednesday, October 4, 2006, 12 pm Eastern Standard Time and Sunday, December 3, 2006, 12 pm Eastern Standard Time.

The applications must be made using an electronic Diversity Visa entry form, which is online - hard copy paper entries will not be accepted.

The agency recommends that applicants not wait until the last week of the registration period to enter, as past experience has shown that heavy demand may result in website delays toward the end of the application period.

For additional information, including a list of the various countries whose natives are and are not eligible for this year's diversity program, see the DOS press release.
