America’s 2024 Diversity Visa Lottery - DV-2026

President Joe Biden

Welcome to the United States Diversity Visa Lottery, also known as the Green Card Lottery. This year’s Diversity Visa Lottery is called the DV-2026 lottery and is open for applicants until November 7, 2024. The Diversity Visa Lottery is a US congressionally mandated immigration program that grants 55,000 people from all over the world a green card each year. The 55,000 people are chosen from the applicants that applied in the DV-lottery. The 55,000 DV-Lottery winners are drawn in a random computer draw from the pool of eligible candidates that applied. Around 40% of all applicants that apply each year are disqualified due to errors in their application including but not limited to photos errors, sizing issues and double submissions. It is VERY important to get your DV-Lottery application correct or you will not be considered in the draw. The US Government applies sophisticated software to find and disqualify applicants that do not comply with the rules.

A Green Card is a permanent resident card that allows a person to live, work or study in the United States of America for 10 years. Before a Green Card expires the green card holder can either apply for a green card extension that would grant another 10 years of residency or the green card holder can apply for a US citizenship. There are only two differences between a green card holder rights and a US citizen’s rights. The US citizen is allowed to vote in Federal elections and also run for federal office while the green card holder is not. If you would like to move to the United States of America, the DV-Lottery, also knows as the green card lottery, is a very affordable and fast way to legally gain entry into the United States compared to any other American visa.
