The Diversity Immigrant Visa program, also known as the green card lottery, is a United States congressionally mandated lottery program for receiving a United States Permanent Resident Card. The Immigration Act of 1990 established the current and permanent Diversity Visa (DV) program. The visa lottery was established in an attempt to bring individuals to the U.S. from countries that had been sending few immigrants to the United States in the past.
Online registration for the DV 2018 Program is currently in progress.
Currently, approximately 50,000 foreign nationals per year are awarded visas based on pure luck to come and live permanently in the United States under the visa lottery program.
