DV lottery application for 2015 to open on Oct 1: U.S. Embassy
The application period for the 2015 Diversity Visa (DV) program is beginning at noon from October 1, 2013 and will continue for a month, the U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu said in a statement. The application period closed on November 3.
“We strongly encourage DV program entrants to apply early,” said the U.S. Embassy, while reminding applicants that there is no fee to enter the DV lottery.
The U.S. Embassy also recommended against using a consultant to assist with the application.
The entries for the DV-2015 Diversity Visa lottery must be submitted electronically during the registration period. The educational requirement is a minimum of twelve years of formal education (generally, completion of SLC+2) for the programme, the statement added.
Thousands of Nepalis apply for the DV lottery programme every year with a hope to live and work in the U.S.
Many businesses have also sprung up in the country to facilitate the application process for aspirants wanting to migrate to U.S. and charge certain fees for their service. Nepalnews.com
