The United States is a country with diverse cultures and multi-ethnic people. To maintain this diversity among its population, the United States government each year issues 50,000 permanent residence visas as part of the Lottery Immigration Visa Diversity Program. Yes, it is also easy to obtain permanent residence in the United States using the Green Card Lottery!
What is a green card?
A green card is an identity card that proves the status of an American permanent resident. It is the easiest way to American immigration. Any citizen of any eligible country can apply for the American Green Card. The applicant must have a high school diploma or equivalent experience. The U.S. Department of State is authorized to receive and process applications for this card. Applications submitted by qualified prospective immigrants are computerized and withdrawn until the specified quota is reached. Green Card Lottery winners and their families are entitled to live and work in the United States as an equal citizen.
Green Card Lottery requirements
Eligibility to obtain the lottery under the diverse immigration visa program is rare and easy. Once you meet these lottery requirements, you can participate and win an American immigrant visa.
Nationality – Anyone who applies for a green card lottery must come from an eligible country designated by the United States government. Due to the lack of multiple nationalities participating each year in the lottery, the government allocates different quotas for each country. However, some countries are not eligible at all to participate in the lottery mechanism. This is your exclusive chance if you belong to an “ineligible” country.
Education or experience – Any person applying for a green card lottery must have at least a high school diploma. Otherwise, he must have two years of experience in a field that requires at least two years of training or experience.
