Diversity Green Card Lottery
Diversity Lottery Program is intended to give an immigration opportunity to the persons from the countries that do not send too many people to the United States.
Every year the Department of State allocates up to 50,000 immigrant visas to a special class of immigrants knows as “diversity immigrants” for the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. This Program is designed to allow nationals from countries with historically low rates of immigration to come to the U.S. In order to qualify for a diversity visa (and a green card) you must be a native of a country participating in the Diversity Visa Program. Participants are drawn form the randomly selected entries from the persons who meet strict eligibility requirements.
There is, however, a small number of lottery winners each year who, at the time of “winning the lottery,” are residing in the United States in a nonimmigrant or other legal status. For these winners residing inside the United States, USCIS processes adjustment of status applications.
To adjust status under the DV Program, an applicant must establish that you:
• He has been selected for a diversity visa by DOS’s lottery;
• Has an immigrant visa immediately available at the time of filing an adjustment application (Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status); and
• Is admissible to the United States.
