The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program (DV Program) makes up to 50,000 immigrant visas available annually, drawn from random selection among all entries to individuals who are from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. The DV Program is administered by the U.S. Department of State (DOS).

DV Visa Objective:

The Diversity Visa (DV) program is designed to improve the multicultural composition of the U.S.A.

Application Requirements:

In addition to country requirements, visa lottery applicants must also meet employment or education requirements. Applicants must meet one of two requirements:

  • Completion of an elementary and secondary 12-year education curriculum, such as high school.
  • Two years of work experience at a job that requires at least two years of experience or education.

If prospective applicants cannot meet either the education or work requirements, then they are ineligible for the green card lottery.
