How To Apply for the Green Card Lottery?

This bulletin gives a summary of how to apply for the Green Card Lottery. The information here is general and pertains to the 2009 lottery; the 2010 lottery information will be available starting October 2008. This will give you a general understanding of what to expect for the 2010. The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is the way in which immigrants can come to the United States with a Green Card. This annual program provides for those immigrants who meet the eligibility requirements outlined in this bulletin. There are six regions where these particular visas (green cards) are distributed to areas where there are a low number of immigrants coming to the US first, and then to those who have sent less than 50,000 immigrants to the US in the period of five years. In 2009, natives from 20 countries were not allowed to apply for the Green Card because of this stipulation.

  • The Green Card Lottery is done on an annual basis and is administered through the US Department of State. Section 203(c) of the Immigration and National Act (INA), Section 131 of the Immigration Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-649) amended INA 203 all provide for the immigrants in the class of "diversity immigrants". This allows for 50,000 immigrants each year.
  • In order to enter the United States in the Green Card Lottery an immigrant must be a native of one of the following regions: Africa , Asia, Europe, North America (The Bahamas only), Oceania, South America, including Central America and The Caribbean To see the complete list of the eligible and non eligible countries enter: green card lottery requirements
  • To apply for a green card, each member of a family must apply with a separate picture and information about the individual. A husband and wife, brothers and sisters, all children under the age of 21 must apply and anyone living in a household together may apply. A husband and wife can apply separately. Each person can only apply one time in any year (Green Card Lottery updates)

    When applying for green card with the DV lottery, only those jobs in zones 4 or 5 with a preparation (SVP) level of 7.0 or higher will be accepted. In order to find out if your job qualifies, you must go to the O*Net Online Database. You can do a search for this on the Internet. When you get there, click on find occupations, go to Job Family and choose the "family" that your job fits into, click on the specific occupation and click on Job Zone (located in blue line above the name of the occupation). This will give you exactly what zone and what SVP level your job fits into.

    There is a random drawing for all those who have qualified. Those who are picked are sent notices by a certain date; those who are not picked will not receive notification.
