Green Card Lottery Deadline Looms as Millions Prepare to Register


Santa Barbara, CA, December 31, 2004 -- Creative Networks,, a leading immigration web site, today remind those who intend to enter the annual State Department Diversity Visa Lottery to apply before the January 7 deadline.

According to J. Stephen Wilson, co-author of Win the Green Card Lottery! “We strongly encourage lottery entrants to register at no later than January 4, 2005 to avoid access problems to government computers caused by the large volume of last minute applications. Register now since it is too close to the January 7 deadline to engage a lottery service to submit your application.”

Written by Marybeth Rael, a former lottery service owner, her booklet, Win the Green Card Lottery outlines the entire procedure from entering the lottery to obtaining permanent residency. Based on the latest State Department rules for DV-2006, this guide provides over 20 tips and essential guidelines to help eliminate common mistakes throughout the process, plus scanning and photography guidelines, reviews of lottery services, and an entire chapter devoted to lottery winners. Their latest edition also includes other ways to get a green card.

Editor James T. Daly, Attorney At Law adds, “Some applicants accidentally reverse their first name and last name on their application. The State Department considers this sufficient grounds to deny your application.”
