Diversity Immigrant-Green Card: Diversification Program of Immigrant Visas

The congressionally mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is administered annually by the Department of State in the USA.

Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides for a class of immigrants known as “diversity immigrants,” from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States.

There is no cost to register for the DV Program. Although we help and assess your application to ensure it is valid for a small fee (£60 + VAT). Apply now for your USA Visa Lottery.

Applicants who are selected in the lottery must meet simple, but strict, eligibility requirements in order to qualify for a diversity visa.

Selectees are chosen through a randomized computer drawing.

Diversity visas are distributed among six geographic regions and no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year.

For DV-2015, natives of the following countries were not eligible to apply, because more than 50,000 natives of these countries immigrated to the United States in the previous five years:

Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam.

Persons born in Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and Taiwan are eligible.

Each year could be have changes at the countries.


Requirement 1: Individuals born in countries whose natives qualify may be eligible to enter.

If you were not born in an eligible country, there are two other ways you might be able to qualify.

Was your spouse born in a country whose natives are eligible? If yes, you can claim your spouse’s country of birth — provided that both you and your spouse are named on the selected entry, are issued diversity visas, and enter the United States simultaneously.

Were you born in a country whose natives are ineligible, but in which neither of your parents was born or legally resident at the time of your birth? If yes, you may claim nativity in one of your parents’ countries of birth if it is a country whose natives are eligible for the DV program.

Requirement 2: In addition, to meet the education/work experience requirement of the DV program, you must have either:

a high school education or its equivalent, defined as successful completion of a 12-year course of elementary and secondary education;


two years of work experience within the past five years in an occupation requiring at least two years of training or experience to perform.

You must list your spouse here even if you plan to be divorced before you apply for a visa.

Married children and children over the age of 21 are not eligible for the DV. However, the Child Status Protection Act protects children from “ageing out” in certain circumstances. If your DV entry is made before your unmarried child turns 21, and the child turns 21 before visa issuance, he/she may be treated as though he/she were under 21 for visa – processing purposes.

A child who is already a U.S. citizen or a Lawful Permanent Resident is not eligible for a Diversity visa, and you will not be penalized for either including or omitting such family members from your entry.

Failure to list all children who are eligible will result in disqualification of the principal applicant and refusal of all visas in the case at the time of the visa interview.
