The following post is aimed at my fellow international readers who might have read my previous Visa Breakdown and would like to know just a little more about that lottery thingy, also known as DV-2010 this year: registration is now open.
This year, the DV lottery is catching up with technology, offering for the first time clear knowledge of whether or not you were selected, online.
Indeed, in previous years, you either received a notification letter, or you didn’t. Maybe the letter was lost in the mail.
Anyway, this year, you will be able next July to look online if you were indeed selected or not.
As for the application itself, as always, it is very easy.
The most tricky part might be the photo ID you have to produce.
The difficulty lies in the various criteria you have to respect, which is not always easy to say the least. More info on that over here.
For you Firefox users, you should definitely go over to the SSL Entry rather than the Standard Entry (they have some coding problem over there).
Remember that registration is totally free and ends Dec. 1.
If you still have questions, there’s a 99.9% chance that this document will answer it.
Good luck, and Namaste.
