Road to Citizenship (Diversity Lottery 2018)
Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides visas for a class of immigrants known as "diversity immigrants," from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States. A limited number of visas are available each fiscal year. There is a limited period of time during which you can register for the Diversity Immigrant Visa (DV) Program during each fiscal year.
How to Apply:
All entries must be submitted electronically on the Electronic Diversity Visa (E-DV) website at travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/immigrate/diversity-visa/entry.html during the specified registration period.
If you receive notification through the E-DV website that you have been selected for further processing in the DV Program, and you are physically present in the United States, you may be eligible to adjust your status to obtain permanent residence through the DV Program.
There is no cost to register for the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program.
