Every year the U.S. government offers foreign citizens an opportunity to
obtain green cards and be granted legal permanent resident status through
the Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery, also known at the
"Green Card Lottery". Winning the DV lottery means you will be given all the work, health,
educational, and other benefits afforded to U.S. citizens.
To participate in the visa lottery, you must meet specific nationality
and education or work experience requirements. Individuals whose home
nation has sent in excess of 50,000 immigrants to the U.S. during the
prior 5 years are not eligible for the DV Lottery. The list of qualifying
nations is updated yearly to ensure those individuals who may not otherwise
have the opportunity to immigrate to the U.S. will be given the chance to do so.
Even if you are not from a qualified nation, you may still have options
available to you. In cases where the spouse of a U.S. citizen or permanent
resident is from an ineligible nation, the spouse may still be able to
participate in the DV Lottery program providing that the U.S. citizen
or permanent resident is from an eligible nation.
The same holds true for couples wishing to register for the DV lottery
together. As long as one spouse was born in an eligible country, both
individuals can claim the country where the eligible spouse was born.
