Sad Day at Lotfi Legal LLC: The Reality of the Diversity Lottery Process

September 14, 2017

The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program (DV Program) allows the US government to issue up to 50,000 immigrant visas annually. In order to qualify, an applicant must be a national of a country that is not well represented in the US. Individuals apply in November of each year and are selected in May of the following year. Then, applicants are given less than 1 year to complete the DV program requirements. This includes submitting all required documents to the US Department of State and attending an interview at a US embassy abroad. The tiniest error in an application is grounds for denial. For example, if the applicant mistakenly uploads a photo of themselves that does not meet the legal requirements, they have just lost their opportunity.


Sometimes though, an applicant can meet all the legal requirements and submit a perfect application and still be denied. In this video, we discuss such a case.
