US Green Card Lottery for Kenyan citizens

Updated on May 27, 2024

You could be one of the Kenyan winners of the Green Card Lottery—but only if you get your application right.

The application process for the Green Card Lottery is very precise, with no room for error. If you make the tiniest of mistakes with your application, it will be denied without further explanation. That’s why we’re here: to make sure that your application is as close to perfect as possible.

Fill me in

We know exactly how the US Green Card Lottery application process works. With our support, you’re one step closer to living your American dream. Let’s get started.

Are Kenyan citizens eligible for the Green Card Lottery?

Yes, Kenyan citizens can participate in the Green Card Lottery.

The Green Card Lottery, also known as the Diversity Visa Program or the DV Lottery, is an annual chance for people from countries with lower immigration rates to the US to apply for residency. Every year, 55,000 visas are available. To see which countries are eligible this year, please visit the USAGov website.

Although there is no set minimum age to apply for the Lottery, the requirements for either a high school education or work experience generally mean that applicants under 18 are ineligible.

Increase your chances of winning the Green Card Lottery: How to enter with us

The application window for the Green Card Lottery is open between October and November each year. Late submissions are not accepted, and entering more than once will disqualify you.

We offer a service that lets you submit your application any time of year. You can complete your application early, and we’ll hold it and submit it as soon as the window opens. We also provide a simplified version of the application form that’s easy to understand and fill out.

Here's what you need to do:

  • Step 1: Enter your personal and travel details on our website or via the iVisa app.

  • Step 2: Verify that all the information you’ve provided is accurate. Pay the service fee with a credit or debit card, PayPal, or Venmo.

  • Step 3: Complete the rest of the application form, upload the required documents, and submit it.

Once you’re done, we’ll review your application to make sure it’s complete and accurate before submitting it. You’ll get a confirmation number, which you can use from May of the following year to check your status on the Electronic Diversity Program website.

US embassy in Kenya

If you’re selected in the Green Card Lottery, your next step is applying for the Diversity Visa. Part of this process is the visa interview, which takes place at the US embassy in Nairobi. This embassy is also your resource for any consular assistance you may need.

Address: United Nations Avenue, off Limuru Rd, Nairobi, Kenya

Phone: +254 20 764 0121 / 0799
