  • Valid passport.
  • (2) Frontal color photos (with white background) measuring 50mm x 50mm (no glasses or head covers).

  • Current marriage certificate, if married, and divorce and/or death certificates showing the end of all prior marriages.
  • Criminal Records from Cuba and from any other country where the beneficiary has lived for more than one year since age 16.

  • Evidence of economic solvency such as a bona-fide employment offer and/or submission of the Affidavit of Support I-134.
  • Documentary evidence of education or work experience for the primary applicant.

Cases in which Additional Documents are Requested

Applicants whose case is refused pending additional documents should submit those documents as soon as possible. The DV program will end on September 30 of the running fiscal year or when all available visas are issued, whichever is first. After that time, no additional visas can be issued, and all existing cases will close.
