How to apply for EDV Lottery from Nepal?

In the EDV Lottery Online Form, you have to submit some details like Name, Gender, Birth Date, City Where You were Born, Country Where You Were Born, Country of eligibility for the DV Program, Passport Details, Passport Size Photo, Mailing Address, Country Where You Live Today, Phone Number, E-mail Address, And Some Questions.

After filling above details you have to provide some contact details as well.

For the EDV Lottery Physical Form, you have to visit your nearest cyber or any station where an authorized or knowledgeable agent will help you to fill out your EDV letter form (in case of a physical form) for a certain fee. Now, you might be thinking that the EDV lottery form is free of cost? Yes, it is but, the agent will charge you about their used time and hard work for you. If you have proper knowledge about technology or you know how to operate the internet and their sites then you individually also fill the form of EDV through an online medium. To fill out the online form you have to visit the Electronic Diversity Visa Program.

In this form, you have to enter all the details correctly and every detail is the same as the online form. If the government can conduct EDV Lottery Program then there is a high chance of getting that lottery than others.

How Does the EDV Lottery Selection Process Work?

EDV selection process is a fully computerized random selection process where a computer bot or software selects random users from the total number of participants. In Nepal, Lots of people fill out the EDV Lottery form online and physically but many of them are disqualified before reaching the total participants counting list due to incorrect or missing information filled by themself or by others.

So, if you have your own mobile and a proper internet connection then you can fill your EDV by yourself because if you tell others to fill then maybe they fill up the wrong information due to missing information or miscommunication.

  2. There are 5 options available (Welcome, Entry Instructions, Photo Instructions, Entry Form, DV Entrant Status Check) if you open the EDV website during the time of form filling,

  3. Open the Entry Form by clicking the "Begin Entry" button,

  4. Now, it will ask for the "Authentication Code" where the code is present below. Fill in the code and click on the submit button,

  5. A new page will open which is "Part One - Entrant Information". Here you have to provide your personal information,

  6. But, at the current marital status if you select the married status except unmarried then it will take you to "Part Two - Derivatives" Otherwise your form will be successfully submitted,

What are the Reasons For Rejection of the EDV Lottery?

There are major 3 reasons for not selecting your EDV form they are:-

  1. Incorrect Information
  2. Incorrect Image

As I previously said the EDV Lottery selection process is fully computerized and random users are selected by the bot. So, if your form isn't selected by participants then you have zero chance to get EDV Lottery because your application isn't reaching to bot due to misinformation.

Incorrect Information:- This is the main reason for your EDV Rejection. Many people fill up their information incorrectly in the EDV form and due to this reason they never get the chance to win the DV lottery. 

Incorrect Image:- Incorrect image format, size, posture, etc are another reason for your EDV form rejection. According to them, your image must not contain;

  • Shadows and Unwanted Lighting: If your image contains shadow and unwanted lighting then your EDV form will not be approved. The image must be clear without any background shadow and unwanted lights.
  • Glasses:- From 2016, In your EDV images glasses and sunglasses aren't allowed even if you were in your daily life. You have to remove that glass or sunglasses for a photo.
  • Size and Position: Your photo must be (51 x 51 mm) with the head centered and sized between (25 and 35 mm). You can use a Passport-size photo for the EDV form.
  • The resolution, Print Size, and Quality: If your image contains any visible pixels or printer dots then your EDV form got rejected. You must face your head and eyes straight.
  • Digital Alterations and Retouching: If you crop the background using any digital software then your photo will not accept but you can crop or digitally change the images by using Photo-tool (
  • Pose and Expression: As I said previously if you do not directly face to camera straight then your image will not be accepted. Also, your eyes need to focus straight. And if you create a fake expression in your photo then it is also not selected. A natural facial expression in the photo will be accepted.
  • Attire, Hats, and Hair: Hats or head coverings are not accepted in photos, except for religious or medical purposes and with a signed statement.
  • Image Background: The image background needs to be uniform, plain and white or off-white, and free of shadows
  • Children Image: When taking a children or kids photo no other person is in the photo and the child has to face toward the camera with his eyes open. If the child is a newborn or infant then partially open eyes images are also accepted.

If you want to read official data about the above information then check Travel State Government Website. But to get that information you have to scroll down to the bottom.

What happens if we apply for EDV Lottery more than one time?

If you apply for the EDV Lottery more than once then you will be disqualified from the EDV Lottery Program means your submitted list will be rejected even if you fill in all the information and images correctly. Due to this rejection, you lose your chance to go to the U.S.A that year and you have to apply for the EDV Program next year.
