US Embassy Calls For DV Applications

The Diversity Visa Program, also known as the Green Card, is now inviting applications as stated by the US Embassy in Nairobi.

Kenyan citizens who are interested should apply via the US State Department website between October 5 and November 8, 2022.

"The entry form will only be available for submission during this period and this period only. Entries will not be accepted through the US Postal Service," cautioned the embassy.

Notably, any application flaws, such as incomplete entry forms, may result in disqualification.

If you do not meet the qualifying educational or work experience standards outlined below, you should think twice before pursuing a diversity visa application because you might not be qualified and any expenses you pay for the visa application will not be reimbursed.


All applicants must have successfully completed a formal elementary and secondary education program that is equivalent to a 12-year program in the United States.

Additionally, equivalency certifications like the General Educational Development (G.E.D.) are not accepted; only formal programmes of study satisfy this criteria.

Although there is no age limit, you need to be above 16 years to be eligible to satisfy that you have completed at least 12 years of both formal primary and secondary schooling.

Applicants should have at least two years of work experience in the last five years in a job zone 4 or 5 with a specific vocational preparation (SVP) rating of 7.0 or higher, which is defined by the U.S. Department of Labor as requiring at least two years of training or experience.

Applicants must provide a current passport number. The passport needs to be up to date to go abroad. Notably, if you listed an invalid passport number on your application, do not submit it.

If you selected an exemption from the passport requirement and you did not meet the exemption requirements you may not be eligible for a diversity visa and any fees you pay for the visa application will not be refunded.

"Only you as the principal applicant must meet these requirements, your spouse and children do not have to meet the requirements," the embassy explained.

Notably, Kenyans have been asked to keep a keen eye on fraudsters that prey on naive applicants.
