The ban by president on the 7 countries: Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, does not affect the DV lottery so far. It is just a ban on travel and stops the movement of those people from those countries to come to the united states for a specific period of time. The DV Lottery is later in the year and should not be affected. So if you are interested, you should check your eligibility and apply today, before the rules change in the future. Rules may change and not allow you entry into this country in the future. So you should plan ahead and try to apply for the DV lottery.
