Green Card Lottery Now Open

Fiscal Year 2024 Diversity Visa Lottery 

Otherwise known as the Green Card lottery, the Diversity Immigrant Visa program is a government lottery program for non-citizens wishing to obtain U.S. Permanent Residence. 

This program makes 50,000 visas available every year to applicants from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. It provides an inexpensive and relatively simple path to a green card, without needing sponsorship from a U.S. employer or family.

The lottery is now open for FREE online registration — from October 5th through  12:00 pm (noon), Eastern Standard Time (EST) (GMT-5), Tuesday, November  8, 2022.

To be eligible, you or your spouse must have been born in a country that sent less than 50,000 immigrants to the U.S. in the previous 5 years. In addition, applicants must possess a high school diploma or its equivalent, or 2 years of work experience in an occupation that requires at least 2 years of training or experience. 

More information, plus a list of eligibility requirements and a link to register online is available here on the Department of State website:
