U.S. IMMIGRATION LOTTERY
INSIGHT FROM A ORLANDO IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY
Each year millions of individuals apply to obtain a green card through the U.S. Green Card Lottery. However, only 50,000 people are chosen. The Diversity Immigration Visa Program randomly selects individuals from various countries with low immigration rates, providing the winners with a green card that can grant a lawful and permanent residence in the United States.
If you have been chosen as a green card recipient, it is important to obtain a trusted Orlando immigration attorney who can ensure your paperwork is handled quickly and effectively. At the Fisher Legal Group, we have extensive and well-versed experience in immigration law. We can not only handle your paperwork, but also help you on your way to becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States.

HOW CAN I QUALIFY FOR THE GREEN CARD LOTTERY?
The lottery is divided into regions and only 7% percent of individuals from each qualifying region are selected. It is important to keep in mind that winning the lottery does not guarantee a green card. If you don’t follow up quickly after being selected, you could miss out on receiving a green card, which is why it is imperative to obtain legal counsel immediately.
In order to qualify to be entered in the lottery you must meet the following requirements:
- Your country must be one of the eligible regions
- You must be born in an eligible country
- You must be 18 years of age or older
- You must have a high school education or have had at least two years of work experience
If your country is not listed as an eligible region, you may still qualify if your spouse or if both parents were born in a qualifying country. The program is administrated by the U.S. Department of State. If a winner already lives within the U.S., then the USCIS adjusts your status application.
