The U.S Department of State under the auspices of the Bureau of Consular Affairs on Wednesday, 5th October, 2022 opened the registration portal for the 2024 Diversity Visa Lottery Program.

As part of the requirements needed to successfully complete the DV 2024 application, a Digital Photograph with unique dimensions is required.


Below are some tips all potential 2024 Diversity Visa Lottery applicants must know concerning the standard digital photograph required for the registration.

Submitting a Digital Photograph  (U.S Visa Photo)

An applicant can take a new digital photograph or scan a recent (taken within the last six months) photograph with a digital scanner, if it meets all of the standards below.

1. DV entry photos must be of the same quality and composition as U.S. visa photos.


You can see examples of acceptable photos here.

2. Do not submit a photograph older than six months or a photograph that does not meet all of the standards described below.

3. Submitting the same photograph that you submitted with a prior year’s entry, a photograph that has been manipulated, or a photograph that does not meet the specifications below will make you ineligible for a DV.


Your photos or digital images must be:

  • In color

• In focus

• Sized such that the head is between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches (22 mm and 35 mm) or 50 percent and 69 percent of the image’s total height from the bottom of the chin to the top of the head.

• Taken in front of a plain white or off-white background

• With a neutral facial expression and both eyes open

• Taken in clothing that you normally wear on a daily basis

When taking a photo of your baby or toddler, no other person should be in the photo, and your child should be looking at the camera with his or her eyes open.


Tip Lay your baby on his or her back on a plain white or off-white sheet. This one will ensure your baby’s head is supported and provide a plain background for the photo.
