50,000 permanent resident cards are made available each year through the American Green Card Lottery (also known as the Diversity Visa or DV). It is an approved U.S. government program that gives foreign nationals a shot at legally living and working in America.
Each year, the U.S. government announces the specific date of when qualified individuals can submit their Green Card Lottery application. It usually occurs at the end of the year for a 30 day period. The advantage of using an application service provider like GC4LIFE is that you can register at any time of the year and they will submit the entry when the date is announced.
100,000 entries are randomly selected from the pool of applications via a computer program. Each Green Card Lottery winner is given a reference number. Winners must complete specific Green Card applications, go through a security check, and receive a medical exam before being approved for a Green Card. The process can take up to a year.
Besides having a high school education or 2 years of work experience, a person must also be a native of a qualifying Green Card Lottery country to participate in the Diversity Visa program.
World Green Card offers a free eligibility test to find out if you qualify for the DV Lottery. Usually, countries that send less than 50,000 immigrants to America within a 5-year period are Green Card Lottery eligible countries.
Yes. If your parents were born in eligible countries, but not residents of your country of birth, then you can apply for the American Green Card Lottery. For example, your parents might have temporarily lived in the ineligible country because of their jobs.
You must have completed high school education.
If a person is qualifying with work experience for the Green Card Lottery, the occupation must be designated as Job Zone 4 or 5, classified in a Specific Vocational Preparation (SVP) rating of 7.0 or higher by U.S. Department of Labor. The U.S. Department of Labor provides information on job duties, knowledge and skills, education and training, and other occupational characteristics at their website. The O*Net online database groups work experience into five “job zones.”
