Question and answer

What should I do if the photo doesn’t go through?
To change or edit, however, the processing should be minimal. Don’t forget to take off your glasses.
Are there any exceptions in which you do not need to enter passport data?
Yes, there is, if you are:
— a stateless person;
— a citizen of a communist country and cannot get a passport from the government;
— you have an individual exemption from this clause, approved by the Department of National Security and the State Department.
Is it possible to apply for a green card while in the USA?
It is possible — as in any country.
Am I allowed to participate in the lottery if I have applied for political asylum?
Yes, but it will be difficult to take advantage of the winnings.
Can a spouse submit a separate application?
Certainly. If one of the spouses was chosen, the second also has the right to receive a green card.
What should I do if I don’t know English?
Use an online translator, or better yet, ask a relative or friend who knows the language.
Is it possible to fill out the questionnaire in several stages?
Must not. You need to fill it out in 60 minutes and send it immediately, otherwise the system will erase all data. If you didn’t have time, fill it out again.
The filling stage is free! If they ask for money for the application, they are trying to deceive you!

When will the results be known?


In may. You can get acquainted with them on the official website: you need to enter your last name, first name, year of birth and confirmation number.
