Diversity Visa Lottery Selection Process
Each year more than 50, 000 applicants are selected for the lottery program, in order to account for those that are unable to pursue the visa. Even if selected, some individuals are ineligible to obtain a visa, and thus being selected for the program does not guarantee that you will obtain the visa. The most common reason for being ineligible after selected is a lack of a high school diploma, or two years of work experience in a job that requires at least two years of training.
The Diversity Visa 2016 program dates will be released soon. The filing period will be held on around October 2014 to November 2014, lasting 30 days.

Qualifying Occupations for the DV Lottery Applicants:
What is your current marital status?
Remember, that legally seperated – this is a different status, than divorced. Legal separation – this is the status, when the divorce is still pending, but the couple lives separately, By the tribunal's decision. Many countries do not have this status. If you are divorced, but choose legal separation, you will be disqualified. Если вы юридически не разлучены, you must include your spouse, even if you plan to divorce, before applying for a diversity visa. Неспособность указать вашего подходящего супруга является основанием для дисквалификации. Если ваш супруг является гражданином США или законным постоянным жителем, do not include it in your post.
