The registration for the 2020 US Visa Lottery which we also  known as the Green Card Lottery is now open for anyone that is interested. All individuals worldwide who meet the entry requirements can apply until November 6 2018 which is the closing date.

Officially the lottery is called the DV-2020 Lottery. Successful applicants will be able to enter the US as a permanent resident in January 2020.

Applicants should be able to complete the online form and participate at a green card interview if the initial application is successful. In total, 55,000 permanent residence cards are available to people from “underrepresented countries” of the world.

Applicants need to be a citizen of a qualifying foreign country with low immigration rates to the US. People from countries with a high immigration rate to the US cannot apply for the program.

It is the country of birth that is taken into account, not the country of citizenship or residence. The following countries are excluded from participation in the Green card lottery program:

Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (mainland only), Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, South Korea, the United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland), and Vietnam.

It is possible for citizens from non-qualifying countries to apply if one of their parents is from a qualifying country.

The lottery will be held in November but the winners will not be notified until May or June 2019. Over the years, millions of immigrants have moved to the US after winning the US Visa Lottery.

Green cards are for permanent residence. To visit the US  for short-term business or tourism it is necessary to enroll with ESTA (for eligible nationalities) or apply for a B1/B2 visa.
