2013 Diversity Visa Program Registration to Begin October 4
The Department of State has announced that the online registration period for the 2013 Diversity Visa Program, DV-2013, will begin on Tuesday, October 4 at noon EST, and will end on Saturday, November 5 at noon EST. The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program makes up to 55,000 diversity visas available each year. These visas are given to people from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States who meet certain eligibility requirements. Visas are selected randomly from all eligible applicants who correctly submit their visas within the open registration period.
People selected for the Diversity Visa must have at least a high school education or its equivalent, or two years of work experience within the past five years in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience.
