Diversity Visa – Beware of Diversity Immigrant Visa Scammers! As of 2012, Bangladesh Is No Longer Eligible to Participate in the Diversity Visa Program.
In 2012, Bangladesh became ineligible to participate in the Diversity Visa (DV) Program because more than 50,000 nationals of Bangladesh immigrated to the United States between 2007-2012. The DV Program is for those countries that are not well-represented by immigration to the United States.
The U.S. Embassy in Bangladesh reminds citizens and residents of Bangladesh to use caution when working with private entities to apply for visas to the United States. The Embassy regularly monitors reports of fraudulent facilitators, e-mails, letters, websites, phone calls, SMS, and print advertisements offering visa services. None of these people are associated with the U.S. Embassy in Bangladesh nor does the Embassy endorse, certify, or approve of any of these services.
Don’t be a victim of fraud!
