Green Card Lottery Opening Date


The application period for the Green Card Lottery is expected to start on October 1, 2014 and will end on November 2, 2014.

The application must be filed online and in one session, so it is important that applicants be prepared before they begin the online registration.

You should have a reliable internet connection and copies of identification documents and birth certificates of applicant and all dependents before applying.

Applicants are only allowed to submit one application each year. If you attempt to apply multiple times, you will be disqualified from the DV Lottery. Sign in to start the process today!

You and your spouse can file one application each, as well as claim their spouse as a dependent. This will double your chances of winning the Green Card Lottery.

Applicants will then be able to check their status online with the U.S. Department of State on May 1, 2015.

Your confirmation number is very important during this period. It is how you can check your status, to see if you have won or not. When you apply with USAGCL, your confirmation number is automatically stored and saved for you, so you don’t have to worry about losing it.
