Can husband and wife each submit one entry for diversity visa program?
Eligible Husband and eligible wife each can submit one entry for their family in any of the DV Draw. If both of them have the birth country eligibility and the required education/work experience according to the program instructions, both of them are allowed to apply one entry as primary applicant including their eligible dependants. But it is very important for them to have their own valid International passports for them. When each of them are filling thier entry they have to provide their passport numbers and details in the Application Form. It is not necessary for their children to have their own passports. If only one only have passport then the person can submit one entry for the whole family. They can submit each an entry along with the spouse detail with their eligible children, if have any. The Diversity visa lottery allows each eligible person to submit one entry with their name as primary applicant in the coming dv-2022 program. If any person tries to submit a second entry with a person's name as primary applicant, the entry will NOT be accepted by the system. Also if the spouse is already a US Citizen or LPR holder should not be included in the online DV application form.
They must include all their children in the application including their previous marriage children and adopted ones, who are under 21 years of age and unmarried. All eligible children must be included even if they don't intend to immigrate to the USA. Those children who are already American PR holders or American Citizen are not to be included in the entries.
Polygamy marriages are not accepted by the American Government and it applies to the green card lottery program too. So those who are married to more spouse should not participate in this draw.
If husband and wife had submitted each one entry and one of them had been selected as a winner, both of them can enter the USA, if they had proofed their eligibility at the time of their interview.
If both the husband and wife are selected as winners, then the one with the highest qualification must proceed with the winning. The other person must stop with the DV winner processing. She/He can proceed as dependant with the spouse. Primary applicant and the spouse must attend the visa interview when called along with their dependants.
Also any person has applied for the last year program and was not selected as a winner can apply for this year entry permit name selection draw.
Those winners who were selected with high case numbers and don't have hope in being called for the interview from the last held draw too can participate in the coming draw to check their luck.
