Green Card Lottery

Green Card Lottery Every year, millions of people apply for lawful permanent residence to the US through the Green Card Lottery. 50,000 lucky persons will obtain green cards.

Applications for the DV-2020 lottery have been closed as of November 6, 2018.

It’s not all a matter of luck!

Read the instructions carefully and apply through this page. It is not necessary to pay either an immigration attorney or the State Department in order to apply. However, if you are selected as a “winner”, you definitely want to consider hiring a top immigration attorney to move your paperwork through the system in a timely manner.

For example, if you are eligible to adjust your status in the United States, the State Department Visa Bulletin provides advance notification of DV Lottery cut-off numbers. This enables lottery winners to apply for adjustment of status before their visa lottery numbers become current.


Natives from the following countries are excluded from participation in the Green Card lottery program this year
Bangladesh Brazil Canada China (mainland only) Colombia
Dominican Republic El Salvador Haiti India Jamaica
Mexico Nigeria Pakistan Peru Philippines
