lottery in general
The US Green
Card Lottery Program, or officially,
Lottery program, is a good opportunity
for potential immigrants to obtain the status as
a permanent legal resident of the USA. This
program runs each year and provides 50,000
"Green Cards" to applicants randomly selected in
a lottery process.
How does the Green Card lottery program work?
This official diversity
visa program will
make permanent residence visas available to
persons meeting the simple, but strict,
eligibility requirements. Applicants for
Diversity Visas are chosen by a
computer-generated random lottery drawing. The
U.S. government makes available 50,000 permanent
residence visas each year for this program.
Application to the green
card lottery program is
open for all individuals worldwide that fulfill
the two basic entry requirements. The visas are
distributed among six geographic regions with a
greater number of visas going to regions with
lower rates of immigration, and with no visas
going to citizens of countries sending more than
50,000 immigrants to the U.S. in the past five
years. Within each region, no one country may
receive more than seven percent of the available
Diversity Visas in any one year.
