Legal Background of the America Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery Green Card Program

What is the Green Card?

The Green Card is the permission for unlimited residence and work in the USA. Tha famous immigrant visa was first introduced in the 1940s as “Alien Registration Receipt Card”. The first of these credit card sized IDs bore green writing and a greenish photo. Thus, the expression “Green Card” was coined and quickly became common. Meanwhile the Green Card has changed its color several times. For a while it had even been pink, since 1999 a light green shade is used again. More than 10 million foreigners are currently living in the USA with a Green Card.

The US is proud to be a country of immigrants. However, far more people are coming to the USA from certain countries than from others. For example, just those immigrating from Mexico, China and the Philippines are by far outnumbering those from most of the other countries accumulated. In order to maintain a diversity in the population, US laws regulate immigration from particular regions of the world. 

For this reason the USA has been randomly distributed 55,000 so called Green Cards in the America DV Lottery every year since 1994. The only prerequisite apart from the eligible native country is a certain level of education. Learn more about the requirements for participation in the dvlottery.

Excluded from winning a Green Card are only those countries with a rate of immigrants to the USA far above average over the last five years (more than 50.000 per country). The US government evaluates the immigration numbers every year so that there is always the chance that excluded countries are allowed to join the DV Program again. That is why you should always read the requirements every year or simply use our free and quick Green Card Check!

Legal basis of the America Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery

The Diversity Visa (DV) or DVLottery Program is based on §201 to 204 of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1990. The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) determines the eligible countries and application rules based on a calculation laid down in a law. These rules can change from year to year.

History of the America Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery Green Card Program

Since 1994 the program has already been executed three times in February, once in November and several times in October. The responsible institution changed in 2000. The formerly appointed National Visa Center in Portsmouth had to hand the processing over to the Kentucky Consular Center, which since then has been in charge for receipt and evaluation of the applications. 

In the first year it was still possible to enter several applications per person into the America DV Lottery. This lead to a few persons applying hundreds of times and thus most probably receiving a Green Card. The effects were a completely overloaded institution and injustices in the distribution, as better off persons could file more applications. Since then each person is only entitled to submit one application per year and has to trust in Fortuna.

Risk of being disqualified in the America Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery  Green Card Program

The application process of the America DV Lottery is quite complicated and the US Government very strict so that thousands of applicants are disqualified every year. The problem is that no one informs the applicants of their disqualification as the US government only contacts the winners of the DVLottery. In worst case you will continue to make the same mistake every year hoping to win in a lottery you are actually not part of.

However, if you apply with our service we guarantee the participation in the official DVLottery. You not only have the chance to apply in several languages, we also check every application and submit it correctly and on time to the US authorities.
