The State Department will open registration for the Diversity Visa 2022 lottery on Wednesday. Up to 55,000 diversity immigrant visas will be available to countries with historically low immigration to the U.S.
BAL Analysis: Those interested in registering for the DV-2022 lottery should prepare to do so early in the registration period. Individuals should beware of scams that frequently target DV lottery registrants. Registrants are reminded that the registration process is free and that the only way to enter the lottery and obtain lottery results is via the State Department’s E-DV website.
The presidential proclamation of June 22, 2020, currently bars the entry of many new immigrants, including new diversity visa recipients. While the State Department is proceeding with the program, if the ban remains in effect, it may be used as a basis to either deny lottery visa applications or to deny entry to the U.S.
