The Congressionally mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program makes available 50,000 permanent resident visas annually, drawn from random selection among all entries to persons who meet strict eligibility requirements from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.
The program, designed to bring greater racial and ethnic diversity to the United States, offers permanent residency visas to citizens who apply. Persons seeking to enter the lottery program must register online through the designated Web site onhttp://www.dvlottery.state.gov during the registration period. Registration is free of charge.
Year 2016 update:
The results of Diversity Visa lottery (DV lottery) are out! At our law office we receive phone calls from people who won the lottery, are in the USA, and who need to adjust status here. We congregate people who won the lottery! Amazing luck! We are very very happy for you!
Here is important information you need to know: Last year more people won the diversity lottery than there were green cards available. This means that those people who waited too long to claim their green card – missed out. All green cards were given away by the time they applied to receive the green card. This also happened to people whose “number” was very high and they could not apply early.
We strongly suggest that all people who are in the USA should apply for green card as soon as their number is current. We suggest that you check visa bulletin every month to see if you are eligible to apply. The very first day you are eligible, you should have the application delivered to immigration office. Please do not wait. This is very important!
Again, congratulations to those who won lottery! If you need help applying for the green card, call our office at 415-240-0083.
