DV Lottery for Nigeria.
DV-2017 visa lottery program for the fiscal year 2017 didn't allow Nigeria born people to take part in the draw as they were placed in the ineligible country list. Nigeria is one of the countries which had sent thousands of its country people to the USA to work and live legally over there with the American immigrant visa selection program. Now the country had been placed in the ineligible country list (first African country to be ineligible) and its natives were not allowed to participate as they had sent more than 50,000 people within the last 5 years period.
Those who want to participate in the coming DV-2018 program draw must wait and see whether their country Nigeria is placed in the eligible country list. If they are allowed, then they will be allowed to participate in the draw once again. Nigerians who had married partners, whom were born in eligible countries, can participate in the draw claiming their partner's birth country eligibility.
Marrying a person for to benefit from the visa lottery program or assist someone in obtaining a USA entry permit through sham marriage is against the law.
Married applicant can enter only one spouse as the American Government supports monogamy marriage only. Mean whi8le those who gay partners who had married legally are allowed to participate in the draw.
