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.
Nigerians who had married to partners, whom were born in eligible countries, can participate in the draw claiming their partner's birth country eligibility. If he is a winner and gets the US Visa at the interview, he can't go alone, as he must enter in to the USA with his eligible country born spouse.
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.
