It’s that time of year again. Each year the U.S. Department of State runs a “lottery” through which citizens of countries that are considered under-represented in the U.S. immigration system can apply through a lottery for an immigrant visa (”green card.”) The DV lottery will not help you if you are in the U.S. unlawfully (undocumented), it also will not help you if you come from a country which is not “under-represented.” It is a lottery, meaning that any individual’s chance of winning is very slim, but we have heard from quite a few individuals over the years who have received their “green card” through the lottery. So, if you qualify to apply, you should. It’s free.
For more information, and to determine whether you qualify to apply, see Immigration Equality's FAQ's at http://bit.ly/2cTJRw. To submit an application, go to the DOS DV lottery site. Good luck!
