Rabat – The US Department of State has announced that the registration for the ‘Diversity Migrant Visa 2018’ (green card lottery) will begin on October 4 and close on November 7.
Registration for the visa can be done for free only online at dvlottery.state.gov, which will be active during the registration period.
According to a document released by the US Department of State, applicants for the green card lottery should register as early as possible since the heavy demand on the website during the last few weeks of the application period might cause website delays. The document specifies that paper applications and late applications will not be considered, whereas, “Individuals with more than one entry will be disqualified.”
The applicants must respond to simple yet strict eligibility criteria, including a baccalaureate certificate. If more than one member from the same family wishes to apply for the Diversity Visa, each member must register individually.
The US Department of State will use a computerized system to select the applicants from the bank of eligible entries. The applicants will be able to check the status of their green card application beginning on May 2, 2017.
The number of Moroccans selected in the Diversity Immigrant Visa changes slightly from year to another, but it approaches 3000 people. Further information will be provided to individuals whose applications are selected, such as the fees involved in the immigration visa.
