Green Card Lottery
Registration Period for DV-2014 is CLOSED !
The online registration period for the DV-2014 Program closed on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 12:00 noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) (GMT-4).
It is no longer possible to register for DV-2014; be aware of websites or emails advising you otherwise. They are NOT operating on behalf of the U.S. government.
The U.S. Embassy in Bern has received enquiries from people who are victims of a world-wide scam involving the Diversity Immigrant Visa (DV) Program, also known as the visa lottery. The scammers behind these fraudulent emails and letters pose as the U.S. government in an attempt to extract payment from Diversity Visa applicants. To avoid becoming a victim of this scam, please read the following advice from the Embassy.
The U.S. government never contacts visa lottery winners via mail, e-mail or by phone. The U.S. Government will NOT ask you to send money to them or to the Embassy in London or any other U.S. Embassy. Any message that asks you to send money, by mail or by services such as Western Union, is a scam even if a legitimate Embassy address is provided.
The only way to apply for the Diversity Visa Program is through the official U.S. Department of State website during the specified registration period which takes place annually in the Fall. If you have never registered for the program, you will NOT be contacted in regard to this program, and should find it strange if contacted regarding your winning.
If you registered for the Diversity Visa Program, you will be required to check the outcome of your registration at the official U.S. government website http://www.dvlottery.state.gov.
