2019 DV Programme opens

The application period for the 2019 Diversity Visa (DV) programme opens on October 3 (9:45 pm nepal time) and closes on November 7 (10:45 pm Nepal time).
The American Embassy in Kathmandu has said that there is no fee to enter the DV lottery.
Likewise, the Embassy has also recommended against using a consultant to assist with application. "One can consider using a family member, friend or other trusted person, if one need assistance," it said, adding that no matter, who provides assistance, one is solely responsible for one's own application.
One has to apply online as entries for the 2019 Diversity Visa lottery must use the electronic Diversity Visa entry form (E-DV) during the registration period.
"When registering, one must list one's spouse and all of unmarried children under the age of 21 at the time of application," it said, suggesting that submissions without the inclusion of family members will make entry invalid. "A person can submit one application only."
Likewise, one has to submit a recent photo and the entries submitted with the same photo from the last DV year will be disqualified.
After submitting, the DV form, one has to print and save confirmation number as this number is the only way to check status on or after May 1, 2018 to check the result.
The Embassy has also reminded that even one is selected as a DV winner, it does not guarantee that one will receive a visa.
