New Green Card Lottery (DV-2016) Begins

The U.S. government will be accepting applications from October 1, 2014 until November 3, 2014 for the current green card lottery. If the applicant is selected, he would qualify for a green card without having to obtain a PERM labor certification filed by his employer or needing a petition approval based on a filing by a close relative. These latter procedures can be costly and sometimes take years to complete, unlike the lottery winner who must complete his case by September 30, 2015. If you are interested, please visit www.dvlottery.state.gov for details as to who can apply, the procedure and the registration form.
