SUMMARY: Notice of Determinations; Culturally Significant Object Imported for Exhibition—Determinations: ‘‘After Vesuvius: Treasures From the Villa dei Papiri’’ Exhibition VerDate Sep<11>2014 Jennifer Z. Galt, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Educational and Cultural Affairs, Department of State. Jkt 244001 Program Overview The Department of State annually administers the statutorily-mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides for a class of immigrants known as ‘‘diversity immigrants,’’ from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States. For fiscal year 2020, 50,000 diversity visas (DVs) will be available. There is no cost to register for the DV Program. Applicants who are selected in the lottery (‘‘selectees’’) must meet simple, but strict, eligibility requirements to qualify for a diversity visa. The Department of State determines selectees through a randomized PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48499 computer drawing. Diversity visa numbers are distributed among six geographic regions, and no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year. For DV–2020, natives of the following countries are not eligible to apply, because more than 50,000 natives of these countries immigrated to the United States in the previous five years: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam. Persons born in Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and Taiwan are eligible. There are no changes in eligibility this year from the previous year. Eligibility Requirement #1: Individuals born in countries whose natives qualify may be eligible to enter. If you were not born in an eligible country, there are two other ways you might be able to qualify: • Was your spouse born in a country whose natives are eligible? If yes, you can claim your spouse’s country of birth—provided that both you and your spouse are named on the selected entry, are found eligible for and issued diversity visas, and enter the United States simultaneously. • Were you born in a country whose natives are ineligible, but in which neither of your parents were born or legally resided at the time of your birth? If yes, you may claim the country of birth of one of your parents—provided that one of your parents was born in a country whose natives are eligible for the DV–2020 program. For more details on what this means, see the Frequently Asked Questions. Requirement #2: Each applicant must meet the education/work experience requirement of the DV program by having either: • At least a high school education or its equivalent, defined as successful completion of a 12-year course of formal elementary and secondary education; OR • two years of work experience within the past five years in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience to perform. The Department of State will use the U.S. Department of Labor’s O*Net Online database to determine qualifying work experience. For more information about qualifying work experience for the principal DV E:\FR\FM\25SEN1.SGM 25SEN1
