2016 Diversity Visa program(DV-2016)

There is no cost to register for the DV program

The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program (DV), commonly known as the "Green Card Lottery,” provides 50,000 permanent residence visas each year by random selection to people from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.  Eligibility to apply for the program is determined by a person’s place of birth, not citizenship or residence.

The Diversity Visa (DV) 2016 program will begin Wednesday, October 1 at 12:00 noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)(GMT-4), and will conclude Monday, November 3 at 12:00 noon, Eastern Daylight Time(EDT)(GMT-4). Entries for the 2016 Diversity Immigrant Visa Program must be submitted electronically at www.dvlottery.state.gov. Do not wait until the last week of the registration period to enter, as heavy demand may result in website delays. No late entries or paper entries will be accepted. The law allows only one entry by or for each person during each registration period and individuals with more than one entry will be disqualified. There is no cost to register for the DV program.

Successful DV entrants must meet education, work, and other requirements before they are eligible to receive a visa.  Every DV entrant must have at least:
  • A high school education or its equivalent; or
  • Two years of work experience within the past five years in an occupation requiring at least two years' training or experience.

Fraud Alert
Please Note: Dishonest agencies in Phnom Penh have been extorting money from winners of the Diversity Visa Lottery (DV) program. These companies have assisted Cambodians to apply for the DV programs and later charged the winners outrageous fees. Winners DO NOT have to pay money to receive their case number and are warned not to pay high fees to brokers.

People and organizations that claim they can help procure a U.S. visa in exchange for a high fee are dishonest; only a U.S. consular officer at the Embassy can adjudicate a visa application. Applicants are also warned not to enter into fake marriages or use fake documents when applying for a visa: those who do so will be disqualified and be permanently ineligible for a visa to the United States. Please contact the U.S. Embassy at IVPhnomPenh@state.gov if you are being extorted by a local broker or to report visa scams, fraud, malfeasance, and other illegal activity involving nonimmigrant and immigrant visas.
