Green Card Lottery

Sometimes permanent migration to the USA is as easy as winning the lottery.

The diversity immigrant visa programme makes USA permanent resident visas available each year. A Maximum of 50,000 visas is usually issued annually. Successful applicants are chosen at random.
Natives of certain countries are not eligible to apply for the USA green card lottery this year because their countries have sent more than 50,000 immigrants to the US in the last five years.

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.

Note: 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.

As one of the leading USA immigration law firms in the UK, we handle all matters pertinent to US citizenship, immigration and nationality law, including green cards. UK clients and other foreign nationals are welcome.


"Your firm represents a very fundamental service for Britons seeking to establish in the states because there does not appear to be many US specialist lawyers in England dealing with migration to the USA."
