Diversity Visa DV-lottery Information
In 1990, the US Congress passed the immigration act and the Diversity Immigrant Visa (better known as the Green Card DV-lottery) was established.
One of the main reasons for this program is to diversify the population of the United States.
Before enacting the DV-lottery, Immigration to the US was accepted mainly from European countries. However, since its beginning almost 30 years ago, the US now allows substantially more immigrants from Asian, African, Latin American Countries as well as from the Middle Eastern and Caribbean countries.
Nowadays, the United States is the most sought-after place for Immigration, with over 45 million immigrants.
Every year, the US State Department through its Green Card DV-lottery program, issues about 50,000 Green Cards. Those that win the DV-lottery go through a routine Consular Interview and eventually become legal Permanent Residents to the United States with their family members.
About 10 million people register each year for the DV-lottery program from all over the globe. A computer chooses approximately 100,000 individuals as winners. These winners will get the possibility to apply for one of the 50,000 Green Cards Issued each year by the U.S State Department.
This method ensures an impartial, nonpartisan way of selecting a diverse group of individuals from all over the globe to have an equal opportunity to win the DV-lottery.
The DV-lottery application must be submitted by October of each year, and the lucky winners are usually notified of their winning by May the following year.

Green Card DV-lottery Requirements
The Diversity Visa (DV lottery) has two primary conditions for participation. One of the purposes of this program, as the name implies, is to diversify the population of the United States. The registration to this program usually occurs around October each year and the U.S State Department issues a list of eligible and non-eligible countries beforehand.
To participate, an applicant must be a native to one of the eligible countries.
The second condition is to have a formal education of 12 years of primary and secondary school. If you do not have 12 years of formal education, you should have at least two years of experience in the past five years; in a skilled job that mandated at least two years of training and practice.
Our website will check whether you comply with the conditions of the DV-lottery program.
To apply for the DV-lottery program, it is not enough to meet the two conditions as mentioned above, being born in an eligible country and having a formal education or a skilled job.
One must complete the application correctly, including uploading a photo that meets the precise instructions of the DV-lottery program, for every individual posted on the application. That means the applicant, his or her partner, and every child under the age of 21.
Anyone who meets the eligibility criteria can apply for free to the DV-lottery directly on the U.S State Department’s website during the registration period.
However, millions who apply for this program get rejected or get selected by the computer and then get disqualified because they fail to follow the correct rules for application submission.
We at the USA Green Card Bureau Organization are dedicated to help you with applying to this much-desired DV-lottery program correctly and concisely.
The Winning Process
Once you submit your application correctly, your probability of being selected as a winner in the DV-lottery program increases tremendously.
Upon completion of registration, you will receive a Confirmation Number by the U.S State Department. You must keep that number, because you will need it later on to check the status of your application and if you have won after the DV-lottery has occurred.
The selectees are being notified of their winning beginning of May the following year. The notification lasts until July.
We at the USA Green Card Bureau Organization, believe that you would like to know as quickly as possible about your status. Therefore, we will notify you in case you be chosen, and also give you the Confirmation Number for validation.
The Next Step: Consular Interview
After being selected as a winner, your next step of the process will be an interview at an American consulate or embassy near you.
Understand that winning the DV-lottery does not mean you will receive the Green Card.
Upon being notified that you were selected in the DV-lottery, you will need to complete the DS-260 and other forms online. The Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) will then set a date for an interview at a U.S embassy or consulate.
As with everything else in the process, you will need to fill up these forms in the correct manner.
You and your family will also need to get a medical examination from an authorized physician, get all the required documents and photos as needed for the DV program, and pay the Diversity Visa Application fee.
As an applicant at our organization, the USA Green Card Bureau Organization will help you with all the necessary means to make this journey as smoothly and as quickly as possible. We will help you arrange all the essential documents and photos, and explain to you and your family about the processes in a clear and conscience manner.
Last Step: Immigration to the United States
After you complete your Consular Interview process successfully, which means you and your family were approved for Immigration to the US, you will receive a new status of Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) and your passport will be stamped inside for entry into the USA.
You will need to pay a fee to the US Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS). The fee can be paid online, and the Permanent Resident Green Card will be sent to you by mail.
You must carry the Green Card with you while living in the United States. It is a legal document and provides proof of your legal status as a Permanent Resident of the United States and your right to work.
