KATHMANDU: Registration for US Diversity Visa (DV) lottery is all set to being tomorrow and will continue for a month, the US Embassy in Kathmandu said in a statement today.
The application period for the 2014 DV programme will end on November 3.
Thousands of Nepalis apply for the lottery programme every year with the hope of migrating to the US.
The entries for the lottery are to be submitted electronically at www.dvlottery.state.gov during the one-month period.
The entrants will have to check whether they have been selected for the DV by going online to www.dvlottery.state.gov between May 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014 with their Entry Status Check, the Embassy said.
People with 12 years of formal education are eligible to apply for the programme.
The Embassy said there is no need to pay for registration or entering the DV lottery. But, local businesses charge aspirants some money for helping them fill up forms.
