Green Card Lottery

Green Card Lottery

Migration to the USA may be possible by virtue of the green card lottery.

The diversity immigrant visa program makes USA permanent resident visas available each year. A Maximum of 50,000 visas is usually issued annually. Successful applicants are chosen at random.

The native of a particular country refers to a person born in that country, regardless of current nationality. Thus, an applicant is required to have been born in a qualifying country (or be married to an eligible applicant who fulfils all the criteria including birth in a qualifying country) or be the minor child, under 21, of a person born in a qualifying country.

Applicants who do not qualify for the green card lottery in the UK, may qualify for a green card or other USA visas through other avenues. See Information on US visas.
