minimum requirements concerning education OR employment status. For
the list of countries see below.
What are the requirements for education or work experience? For the
list of countries see below.
The law and regulations require that every applicant must have at
least a high school education or its equivalent or, within the past
five years, have two years of work experience in an occupation
requiring at least two years training or experience. A "high school
education or equivalent" is defined as successful completion of a
twelve-year course of elementary and secondary education in the
United States or successful completion in another country of a
formal course of elementary and secondary education comparable to a
high school education in the United States. Documentary proof of
education or work experience should not be submitted with the
lottery entry, but must be presented to the consular officer at the
time of the visa interview. To determine eligibility based on work
experience, definitions from the Department of Labor's O*Net OnLine
database will be used.

No. If you do not meet the minimum requirements, you cannot enter
the lottery program.

application form under your spouse name (your husband/wife).

such cases your application will be submitted correctly and not be
What can I do if I was born in a country that does not appear on the
list of qualifying countries?
You can participate by charging nativity of the country of birth of
your spouse (husband/wife) or your parents' country of birth. This
is possible if your spouse or one of your parents was born in a
country that appears on the list of qualifying countries.
More details on the above question:
"Native" ordinarily means someone born in a particular country,
regardless of the individual's current country of residence or
nationality. But for immigration purposes "native" can also mean
someone who is entitled to be "charged" to a country other than the
one in which he/she was born under the provisions of Section 202(b)
of the Immigration and Nationality Act. For example, if a principal
applicant was born in a country that is not eligible for this year's
DV program, he/she may claim "chargeability" to the country where
his/her derivative spouse was born, but he/she will not be issued a
DV-1 unless the spouse is also eligible for and issued a DV-2, and
both must enter the U.S. together on the DVs. In a similar manner, a
minor dependent child can be "charged" to a parent's country of
birth. Finally, any applicant born in a country ineligible for this
year's DV program can be "charged" to the country of birth of either
parent as long as neither parent was a resident of the ineligible
country at the time of the applicant's birth. In general, people are
not considered residents of a country in which they were not born or
legally naturalized if they are only visiting the country
temporarily or stationed in the country for business or professional
reasons on behalf of a company or government. An applicant who
claims alternate chargeability must include information to that
effect on the application for registration.
May persons who are in the US apply for the program?
Yes, an applicant may be in the U.S. or in another country, and the
entry may be submitted from the U.S. or from abroad.
Can I pay more to increase the chances of winning?
No. All the participants in the lottery have an equal opportunity.
The winners are chosen randomly by a computer program.
How can I know if I won?
All winners will be informed by mail. The notice will be sent to the
same address filled out on the application. Participants who do not
win will not be notified.
Are there additional fees?
There are no extra charges for participating in the American Green
Card Lottery Program, aside from the fee for using the on-line

What family members must I included on my form?
your entry form you must list your spouse, that is husband or wife,
and all unmarried children under 21 years of age, with the exception
of a child who is already a U.S. citizen or a Legal Permanent
Resident. You must list your spouse even if you are currently
separated from him/her. However, if you are legally divorced, you do
not need to list your former spouse. For customary marriages, the
important date is the date of the original marriage ceremony, not
the date on which the marriage is registered. You must list ALL your
children who are unmarried and under 21 years of age, whether they
are your natural children, your spouse's children by a previous
marriage, or children you have formally adopted in accordance with
the laws of your country, unless a child is already a U.S. citizen
or Legal Permanent Resident. List all children under 21 years of age
even if they no longer reside with you or you do not intend for them
to immigrate under the DV program. The fact that you have listed
family members on your entry does not mean that they later must
travel with you. They may choose to remain behind. However, if you
include an eligible dependent on your visa application forms that
you failed to include on your original entry, your case will be
disqualified. (This only applies to persons who were dependents at
the time the original application was submitted, not those acquired
at a later date.) Your spouse may still submit a separate entry,
even though he or she is listed on your entry, as long as both
entries include details on all dependents in your family.
May a husband and a wife each submit a separate formfile an
Yes, a husband and a wife may each submit one entry if each meets
the eligibility requirements. If either were selected, the other
would be entitled to derivative status. In this way you double your
If I have won, do I have to emigrate with my family to US?
No. The fact that you have listed family members on your entry does
not mean that they later must travel with you. They may choose to
Is there a minimum age to participate?
There is no minimum age to apply for the program, but the
requirement of a high school education OR work experience for each
principal applicant at the time of application will effectively
disqualify most persons who are under age 18.
What happens to my spouse and the children if I win?
you win these family members can join you in filling a request for a
visa based on your winning.
May persons who are already registered for an immigrant visa in
another category apply for the Green Card Program?
Yes, such persons may apply for the program.
