American Visa Lottery Application Details

The only way to officially apply for a green card lottery is to apply online at the Dept. State website. Beware of any other non-government websites that charge fees for this free application.

The online form that you fill is called Form DS-5501, Electronic Diversity Visa Entry Form, that is available only during the DV open registration period.

You can not download the form and fill it out. Starting with DV-2005, paper entries are not accepted. Online process makes the process more efficient and secure. Moreover, Department of State uses the special technology and other means to identify the persons who commit fraud or illegal immigration or those who submit multiple entries.

You should not wait until the last week of the registration period as there may be heavy demand and it may result in the web site delays.

If you do not fill the online form completely, your entry will be disqualified.

Regardless of who made the entry, if you make more than one entry, all of your entries will be disqualified. Regardless of who made the entry, you are completely responsible for making sure that information in the entry is correct and complete.

Do not send any documents (birth certificate, work experience, school records etc.) anywhere, other than making an online entry.

American Visa Lottery Application Confirmation

Once you successfully register the entry, you will see a confirmation screen that contains your name and a unique confirmation number. Print this confirmation screen for your records. You will need this confirmation number in order to  the status online, starting March of the next year.

If you lose the confirmation page (or number), the only way to know whether you have been selected in the lottery would be if you receive an official letter by post. The KCC cannot resend the confirmation page or number to you.

You can not get the list of selected persons from the U.S. embassy or consulate.
