Poland Eligible for DV Lottery Starting on October 4, 2011

New instructions were recently released by the Department of State regarding Diversity Visa Lottery and citizens of Poland are once again eligible to apply. The DV lottery program allocates 50,000 green cards per year to people who are selected and who meet certain eligibility criteria. To be eligible, a person must have a high school diploma (equivalent to 12 years of education) OR 2 years of experience within the last 5 years in an occupation that requires at least 2 years of experience. A list of eligible occupations can be found on the Department of Labor’s O*Net website. This year the only acceptable method of applying for the DV lottery will be through the internet and no paper entries will be accepted. The deadline for applying runs from October 4, 2011 through November 5, 2011. When a person correctly completes an entry electronically and uploads all required photographs, the computer screen will show the name and confirmation number which should be printed and saved. Winning entries will NOT be notified in the mail or through e-mail. Instead, beginning on May 1, 2012 people will be able to enter their confirmation number on the same website to check whether they have won the DV lottery. Instructions are very specific so please consult the Department of State website for more information.
