Registration in the green card lottery ends: how not to do if you want to win

Less than a day remains until the DV-2022 green card lottery closes - apply available only until 12:00 PM ET November 10, 2020. The results will be announced on May 8, 2021. If you haven't filled out the form yet, there is still time. But don't be in a hurry either: it can lead to mistakes.

How NOT to do

1. No need to choose a photo according to the principle “if only it was”

One of the main reasons that prevent those wishing to win this lottery: inaccuracy in providing the necessary information, especially images, since the photo must be recent, as well as without any changes in graphic editors.

2. Don't lie

Lying is generally bad, and in the green card questionnaire it is also punishable by rejecting it even if you win the lottery. Many applications are rejected because information is not true, there is no need to lie in the application, as the information you provided both in the application and at the interview will be verified.

3. Don't be a fool

Change or loss of your passport can strip you of your immigrant visa if you win, but you cannot prove the reason for the change in the data, so keeping a copy of your passport can always save you in this situation.

4. You don't have to be awkward 2

Failure to save the form confirmation number may deprive you of the opportunity to emigrate if you win, especially since the US Embassies and Consulates and the Consular Center in Kentucky do not issue these numbers.

5. Don't try to predict the future

Incorrectly spelled marital status can deprive you of your green card. For example, applying for immigration as a couple if you are not married at the time of the draw, but plan to get married before the result of the lottery is announced. The same applies to indicating the wrong number of children (one more) if the applicant is pregnant and is waiting for a family replenishment before the lottery results are announced. The application must indicate the actual state of affairs without your predictions for the future.

6. Don't forget about children

It is necessary to indicate the data and provide photos of all your children, even if they were from a previous marriage, and they do not plan to immigrate with you.

7. Don't neglect your roots

One of the most common mistakes is registration by country of residence, not birth. Make sure that you indicate the country of birth in the application.

For those who submitted documents earlier than others, there is no advantage; all applications submitted for the indicated period will participate in the drawing in equal proportions.

Having received your number confirming the acceptance of the form, you will not be able to try again or file an application in the same year. If more than one application with the same name is submitted, the request is automatically deleted.

The application form includes the data of the husband or wife and children under the age of 21, and the wife has the right to file another application with the same data in order to increase the chances of winning.

Not everyone who wins the lottery receives a visa, first you need to successfully pass an interview.

Necessary documents to be collected before the interview: the full list is listed here. All documents that are not in English should be accompanied by a certified translation. No notarization or apostille is required.
