If you registered directly with the US authorities, you must submit your photos during the registration process. This is only possible during a period of about 4 weeks in October / November of each year. Submitted photos must meet the requirements without any error, otherwise you will be disqualified,
However, with USAGCD, you can register for the US Diversity Visa Program throughout the year as well as upload the necessary photos to your account at a later date so that they are finally sent to the US authorities.
Additionally, we verify the accuracy of each new photo before we submit your request to the US authorities in the appropriate form and time.
We also remove all EXIF data from the images before sending them. If you send a very old photo yourself, the US authorities may be able to identify it. That won’t happen if we send the image on your behalf.
