What is the DV Lottery?

The Diversity Visa Program (DV Lottery) is congressionally-mandated and allows up to 55,000 persons from nations that are historically under-represented in terms of migration to the United States of America to qualify each year for immigrant visas which are also known as Green Cards.

The program is called the “Green Card Lottery” or "dvlottery", because the winners are determined through a random drawing from among the 10–12 million people who enter each year world wide.

For this reason the USA has been randomly distributed 55,000 so called Green Cards in the DV Lottery every year since 1994.
