Bangladesh DV Lottery.
The American visa Lottery program.
10:06 AM 12/10/2016
Bangladesh natives were using the availability of this American visa lottery program every year the year 2012. Due to high immigration rate to the USA the limitation was applied for the Bangladesh born people.
Bangladesh natives married to foreign spouses (whom were born in eligible countries) only will be allowed to participate in this popular draw, claiming their spouse's eligibility. If they become as winner with this claim, they can't enter in to the USA alone; they must accompany their eligible spouse too on their arrival under the DV Lottery program.
Bangladesh born people were not allowed to participate in the DV-2018 visa lottery program as was in the previously held programs. The country was announced as ineligible to participate in the draw, as it had sent more than 50,000 people within the last 5 year period. This was officially announced from the DV-2013 onward in English and Bangla announcements.
Bangladesh natives may try to submit their entry in these draws. But can't find their country name to select under the eligibility of birth country in the application forms. So if you are Bangladesh born person don't try to fill the Application form as it isl waste of time.
As per the new diversity visa lottery instructions, Bangladesh born people were not allowed to participate in the 2016 program too.
In the Asia region Bangladesh used to be top number of winners every year until they were stopped. When it was allowed to participate in the electronic draw nearly half of the totally submitted entries were from here.
To meet the education requirement, applicant must have successfully completed 12 years of primary and secondary school of an S.S.C. and H.S.C. in Bangladesh.
It is against the law to perform fake marriages to assist someone to obtain American visa. If found both of them will be prosecuted under their country law and on the other hand the US Government may ban them for 99 years from entering in to the USA.

In the draw DV-2018 Ecuador was allowed to participate for the diversity visa lottery program after so many years. So Bangladesh born people too can wait and see to be included in the future draws, when the country is found to be eligible.
