Before getting started, please note the DV-2025 Lottery is the name of the DV Lottery for this year (2022). The winners of this year’s DV Lottery can go to the United States in 2025 using their new permanent residence cards.
What is DV Lottery?
Before applying for DV Lottery you should know about the DV Lottery. Each year, the US government issues 50,000 Permanent Residence Cards (often known as “green cards”) to people from other nations having low rates of immigration to the US.
In order to increase demographic diversity in the United States, the 1996 Immigration Act created the Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery. In order to be eligible for the DV Lottery this year, applicants must fulfill two requirements in particular.
The majority of people worldwide who are 18 or older are eligible to enter the DV Lottery. There are two straightforward but severe eligibility requirements that you must complete in order to participate in the DV-2025 Lottery.
The Diversity Visa Lottery is not open to natives of nations that have sent more than 50,000 immigrants to the US in the previous five years. The list of nations whose citizens are unable to participate in the DV Lottery this year can be found in the DV Lottery Requirements. Be aware that this list will alter annually.
