DV Lottery for Nigeria.
Nigeria is one of the countries which had used the DV Lottery program to send thousands of its country people to the USA. And for the first time the country had been included in the ineligible country list (first African country to be ineligible) and its natives were not allowed to participate in the DV-2015. Those who want to participate in the next coming DV-2016 draw must wait and see whether their country is allowed to participate in the draw again. Nigerians who had married partners born in eligible countries can participate in the draw claiming their partner's eligibility.
It is very rare for the African and Asian born people to get the required entry permit with the support of their work experience.
Married applicant can enter only one spouse as the American Government supports monogamy marriage only.
Winners will need a petitioner (sponsor's) support from such as U.S citizen or U.S LPR holder.
Non-refundable diversity visa processing fee of US$ 330 on the date of their interview to the US Embassy ONLY and this money can be paid in Naira too as per the Embassy instructions. Those who had received the entry permits must pay another US$ 160 to the USCIS office to be issued with the Green card.
2015 online results are now available in the official web site.
Winners name list for this program will not be available anywhere.
The U.S Embassy or the Consulates too can't provide the names of the winners, so don't distrub them.
