What is the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program?

If you wish to obtain a green card in the U.S., you may have a variety of options. For example, you may be able to become a permanent resident as a result of a job you have in Miami-Dade, Florida, or anywhere else in the country. However, you may want to familiarize yourself with other options, such as the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program.

According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, as many as 50,000 immigrant visas are issued each year through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. This program, which is overseen by the Department of State, allows people from certain countries with low levels of immigration to apply for a green card lottery. Winners are chosen randomly and typically live in another country when they win. However, some may already be legally living in the U.S. when they win and they will need to have their status adjusted.

For some people, especially those who live in a country where very few people immigrate to the U.S., the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is an excellent way to pursue the American dream. For those fortunate enough to have their name drawn, properly handling the application process is pivotal. By immigrating to the U.S. through this program, many people have been able to secure a better future for their themselves and their family members as well.
