Diversity Lottery for Green Cards Re-Opens

Written By The Shapiro Law Group on October 25, 2011

The U.S. State Department announced earlier this month that the registration period for the annual Diversity Visa lottery is open.

This lottery allows foreign citizens from certain countries to apply for permanent resident immigrant visas (green cards) outside of the normal immigrant visa process. Applicants must have requisite qualifications related to country of origin (or spouse’s country of origin), work experience and high school education.

The online registration period for this year’s lottery began on October 4, and it will end on Saturday, November 5 at noon EST.

If either you or a family member needs help with a visa or green card, please call our offices at (847) 564-0712 to schedule an appointment and/or check out the pertinent section of our Website for more information on how we can be of assistance to you.
