The US Embassy in Colombo announced that the 2014 Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery Program, popularly known as the Green Card Lottery, will be accepting on-line applications starting on October 2, 2012.

Issuing a statement, the embassy said that the Diversity Visa Lottery allows 50,000 randomly selected applicants an opportunity to legally live and work or study in the United States each year, so long as they are selected and are born in a qualifying country (Sri Lanka and the Maldives both qualify) and that they meet either an educational or work experience qualification. In order to apply for the Diversity Visa Lottery, please visit www.dvlottery.state.gov. 

For more information about the program, as well as detailed instructions in English, Sinhala and Tamil, please see the U.S. Embassy Colombo’s website at: srilanka.usembassy.gov/visas/diversity-visa-lottery-program.html.
The online application for the Diversity Visa Lottery is completely free. The lottery application period will be open from October 2, 2012 to November 3, 2012.  Individuals wishing to participate in the visa lottery are strongly urged to apply early to avoid any possible delays.  An applicant may only apply once; more than one entry will result in automatic disqualification.

Beginning approximately May 1, 2013, applicants may go online to www.dvlottery.state.gov to check the status of their application with their confirmation numbers.  Winners will not be notified by either postal mail, e-mail, or telephone calls.  The results of the applicants’ entry and the instructions on how to obtain an appointment will only be available through the website www.dvlottery.state.gov.  Applicants who qualify will then have a one-year window in which they may immigrate to the United States.

    In case nobody realized, this is another "international conspiracy" by the ugly Americans to get the unsuspecting "patriots" of our country to leave our shores and do their dirty work in 24-hour setups. If in doubt, please ask Minister Weerawansa who is an expert in US Affairs!.

    The winners will be given a training to beg on the streets till they find employment. Unemployment rate being very high they might have to beg for years.

    @Saman: Try to earn more money and live relatively better. For this only, most of them are migrating to United States..

    I wonder the eligibility of Hon Mr Wimal Weerawansa to apply. If so it is a very easy way to see the back of Modawansa!

    Why couldn't he? If Malaka was accepted Mr. Anti Google can too and a Green Card is guaranteed for him!

    Wimal always attacks US, therefore US would like to give him a green card and have him on their side.

    Andrew Pitugala Wednesday, 03 October 2012 03:05 AM

    Srilanka issues only red cards and force people to stay.

    America is a Great Nation, where a minority can become a President. Is it possible in Sri Lanka?????????????
    Even a majority community Christian cannot become a President or Prime Minister. Therefore Green Card is welcome from America to Lankans

    Dayan Tuesday, 02 October 2012 02:59 PM

    The leaders, their families and children are being educated in USA, UK and, literally imperialist countries (as they say) then land here talk, build up and demonstrate against IMPERIALISTS.

    If you have an eligibility to apply this please go for this

    Not really... Getting a spousal visa in Sri Lanka for a foreign spouse is hard. Getting a work visa for a foreigner is also hard. So many layers of bureaucracy. No such thing as long-term visas for foreigners here - max 2 years after which they have to exit country and then re-enter and re-apply for same... How stupid.

    GameKolla Tuesday, 02 October 2012 03:45 PM

    In this country most of the dirty work carried out by our own people...( some richest people in USA are Asians)

    DMirror Fan Tuesday, 02 October 2012 03:51 PM

    Uncle Sam need to assist NATO in Muslim countries. So manpower is replaced by innocent Asians. US advice other countries to reduce their population. Think twice.

    Citizen Tuesday, 02 October 2012 03:57 PM

    are Sri Lanka's job prospects any better?

    Ayesha Arambepola Tuesday, 02 October 2012 04:01 PM

    Whatever is said and America is a great country, which country in the world is offering this Green card facility. O, America, with all thy faults, I love thee still!

    Saman K Wednesday, 03 October 2012 08:49 AM

    Why should we migrate to US, when we are living in the miracle of Asia????
