American visa drew.

Bangladesh natives were benefiting the availability of this American visa lottery program every year until 2012 to immigrate to the USA legally. Later due to high immigration ratio to the USA, Bangladesh born people were listed in the ineligible country list. Now they have to wait till their immigration ratio to the USA to come down under 50,000 within the last 5years. Then only these people will be allowed to participate in the draw in this year.

DV-2022 also didn't allow Bngladesh born people to participate in the last year as Bangladesh is still in the ineligible country list. Those who had married to eligible country spouses were allowed to participate in the DV2022 program claiming their spouse birth country for eligibility.

Bangladesh DV Lottery

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.

In the year 2019 the DV-2021 visa lottery program did accepted entries through the internet. But the Bangladesh born people will NOT be allowed to participate in this draw. So don't try to apply as your country name is NOT in the eligible country list to select in the E-DV entry from from the drop down country name list.

They were not allowed to participate in the last held DV-2021 visa lottery program too as was in the previously held programs too. 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. As per the new diversity visa lottery instructions, Bangladesh born people were not allowed to participate in the 2013 - 2021 programs too.

In the Asia region Bangladesh used to get large 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 Bangladesh born people. To meet the education requirement, applicant must have successfully completed 12 years of primary and secondary school of education and should have passed the 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

Waiting for the DV-2022 draw announcement?

DV-2022 Instructions is now available in the internet and Bangladesh born people can download and check if their country is in the eligible country list or not.
If not allowed don't try to apply for the draw as the country name will not be listed in the allowed country name list.
Here is the alternative way for you Bangladesh born people.

"However, you may choose your country of eligibility as the country of birth of your spouse, or the country of birth of either of your parents if you were born in a country in which neither parent was born, and in which your parents were not resident at the time of your birth. These are the only three ways to select your country of chargeability. Listing an incorrect country of eligibility or chargeability (i.e., one to which you cannot establish a valid claim) will make you ineligible for DV-2022."
