Reminder Green Card Lottery DV-2011 is Now Open

This is just a quick post for everyone to remind them the Green Card Lottery DV-2011 (aka Diversity Visa Lottery) is now open.
It is open for entry from October 2, 2009 through November 30, 2009 and there is only one entry per person allowed.

You don’t get extra credit for entering earlier in the process but it is good to be early of course!

Winners will get notified by mail in 2011 around about May to June although as with Dv-2010 you will be able to check whether you were successful or not online at the US Government Official Green Card Lottery Site.

A common question is what are the photo specifications as you can find this both at our main Green Card Lottery Information page as well as a online photo validater on the US Government Lottery site which will check the photo you upload.

This process is completely FREE and through the US Government so do not pay anyone else or go to another site to apply. These are all SCAMS!

For more information and instructions go to; DV-2011 Instructions Press Release page .

Also to note as with last year’s Green Card Lottery DV-2010, the countries that are eligible an ineligible are the same.
These include BRAZIL, CANADA, CHINA (mainland-born), COLOMBIA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, ECUADOR, EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA, HAITI, INDIA, JAMAICA, MEXICO, PAKISTAN, PERU, PHILIPPINES, POLAND, SOUTH KOREA, UNITED KINGDOM (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and VIETNAM. Persons born in Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and Taiwan are eligible.

There are exceptions if you are from these countries and say at least one of your parents at the you were born was a non resident or citizen of this country and is from an eligible nation, then you could qualify.

There are 50,000 Green Cards allotted and it somewhat apportioned for all parts of the world so that say not a big number will come from one country or even one continent.

Good Luck!


Green Card Lottery 2011 (DV-2011 Diversity Visa) opens October 2, 2009

Well it’s almost here again for another year, the Green Card Lottery! Anticipated by so many people around the world as perhaps their only chance to establish permanent residency in the United States to live and work freely and bring their families.

The Green Card Lottery or it’s official title Diversity Visa Lottery is completely FREE to enter!
So do not think that you have pay as their are many sites out there that charge a fee saying they wil enter you multiple times over many years, ensure your application is correct and enhance your chances of winning as well as pay for your ticket over here partially or in full if you win.

The Lottery is run by the US Government and is very simple application for the most part with just basic details required along with a digital photo. More official information can be found at the official Green Card Lottery Information area of the US State Department.

This year the lottery will run from October 2, 2009 through November 30, 2009 and if successful you will be notified via a formal letter between around May to July in 2010. Following an interview at the US Consulate you will then be able to enter the US in the 2011 Immigration year in their calendar which begins on October 1, 2010.

Official instructions and eligble countries are yet to be announced for this year but if you read our Diversity Visa Lottery Instructions you will get a pretty good year about a lot of this as it doesn’t change that much.

The DV-2010 Lottery was the first year results were able to checked online and also that non winners were able to verify that also online where in previous years they were told nothing. We assume that will continue and possibly be expanded for the DV-2011 Lottery.

We wish you well and good luck this year in the Green Card Lottery (DV-2011) and just remember that is completely free to enter and is run every year around about this time.
