The final day to register for a 2025 Diversity Visa application is Nov. 7. Registration will close at noon EST that day.
Background: Also known as the Green Card Lottery or the Visa Lottery, the Diversity Visa program allows nationals of countries with low U.S. immigration rates and who meet eligibility requirements to register for a chance to apply for a U.S. immigration visa. The State Department is alerting individuals to be wary of scammers who send fraudulent emails and letters posing as the U.S. government in an attempt to extract payment from Diversity Visa applicants. There is no fee to enter; fees are only required at the time of the scheduled appointment.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice Group.
