Electronic Diversity Visa Lottery

There are about a million people who successfully gain green cards and entrance into the United States every year. Out of this large number, about 55,000 would be eligible to gain a green card by winning the electronic diversity visa lottery which is also known as the DV lottery. Although 55,000 might seem like a large number, it is not much when you consider the fact that it is allocated to several countries of the world. It is estimated that about 20 million people for these 55,000 green cards during each lottery session. The DV lottery program is electronic and is done every year.

The requirements to be met in order to qualify are pretty much straight forward. As long as you are a citizen of an eligible country, you have met the first criteria. Then you should have completed your high school or secondary school education or at least have 2-year working experience with jobs that require at least 2 years to gain substantial experience. Then you must meet general immigration requirements such as the absence of an existing criminal record and you must be health certified. Although some countries are ineligible, these are countries who have sent more than 50,000 people to the US in the preceding 5 years.

The electronic diversity visa lottery program usually runs from October to June the next year. The registration process is carried out from October to November. The entire process is under the control of the Department of State. Do not be deceived by schemes that tell you that they can increase your chances of getting picked to about 80%, as the whole process is under the strict watch of the Department of State.

The whole process can be done on your own. But it is vital to note that any mistake at all, no matter how seemingly insignificant could disqualify you. In a lottery containing millions of candidates, the importance of accuracy cannot be overemphasized. As a matter of fact, some online applications only give you a 30-minute opportunity to fill in all the required data correctly. Not to mention the fact that other guidelines and instructions are in place. This narrow window of opportunity and stringent guidelines have successfully served to eliminate a lot of people from the process over the years. Once you are disqualified you would have to wait till the next year.
