The 2016 Diversity Visa Lottery already began taking applications on Oct 1. It will continue to take applications through November 3, 2014. The Diversity Visa Lottery (more commonly known as the Green Card Lottery) allows an individual from certain underrepresented countries to apply to win a visa to the United States with few requirements.
