Eligibility For Green Card Lottery

  • Do you have a job opportunity lined up for you in the United States?
  • Do you have any family members residing in the United States?
  • Do you have $500,000 to $1,000,000 to invest in a new business and create new jobs in the United States?

If none of these options apply to you, then  you may want to look into the diversity visa, which is most commonly known as the green card lottery or the dv lottery.

Each year the USCIS issues 50,000 diversity visas through a lottery system, with all qualifications being equal, your chances of getting a green card basically is drawn from a hat.

Rules for the Green Card Lottery

You can either be currently living in the U.S. or abroad, your chances are the same.  Essentially why this system was created was to promote and allow people from countries that typically have very few immigrations into the U.S.  The U.S. is, afterall, land created by migrants, and the U.S. would like to continue to draw interest from different parts of the world.  As long as you fit the criteria above, and is either a high school graduate OR have two years of working experience, then you can submit a diversity visa entry form, along with all the supporting documents to the DOS by lottery deadline, then you will be entered into the lottery.
