What is a Diversity Visa?

What is a Diversity Visa?

The annual Diversity Immigration Program, also known as the green card lottery and mandated by the American Congress, provides citizens of countries with a low number of immigrants to the United States each year with the chance to obtain 55,000 immigrant visas by random selection method. The winners of the lottery must meet the necessary education and/or work conditions and fulfill other requirements in order to obtain a visa.

Persons who meet the proficiency requirements, which are limited by some simple but strict rules, can benefit from the DV program organized every year. The winners of the DV program are determined by a random draw by the computer. Visas are divided among six geographical regions, and no country in these regions may exceed seven percent of the total number of visas to be issued in the relevant year.
