This program was sponsored because of the late Senator Edward Kennedy under section 203 (c) on the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1990 to assist even out the proportions of immigrants from different European countries which, back then, were known as skewed and only immigrants from Latin America and Asia. The DV Program now awards 50,000 green cards annually to citizens of countries which can be under-represented with regards to U.S. immigration visas. To meet the diversity goal, any country which includes admitted 50,000 immigrants in to the U.S. during the last five years isn't eligible.
Roughly 100,000 'winners' is going to be chosen randomly by computer by May 1, 2015 for interviews at U.S. consulates abroad, or at the local USCIS office for people living in the United States. Interviewees must bring proof education or work with a qualifying occupation, birth and marriage certificates, and much more, including evidence they've got a job browsing the United States or someone ready to pay their living costs until they get a job so that they do not be a public charge.
Countries ineligible to the upcoming twelve months 2014 lottery ('DV-2016) are: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) as well as dependent territories, and Vietnam. Applicants born in most other countries meet the requirements to enter.
Those eligible with the green card lottery can register electronically with the official U.S. government website at: during the 30-day open registration period. Applicants may register any moment of year having a highly rated lottery service. Ethical, fee-based lottery services represent a viable choice for a lot of applicants who require or simply want the relief knowing they've already help through the entire process from registering to finding an immigration lawyer if they win.
The green card lottery represents one on the few avenues for legal entry to the United States, for the people from African and Caribbean countries. But poorer non-citizens are without lobbyists, not to say a significant quantity of supporters in Congress. For this reason the lottery is here on the chopping block for a lot of years by conservatives including Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) who see the winners being a threat to national security, as taking jobs faraway from Americans, or that this program admits a great number of 'undesirables' by using a process of 'chain-migration.'
However, the variety of immigrants admitted on the United States from the lottery represents just about 5% in the overall number. Independent immigration studies consistently reveal that legal immigrants contribute for the economy, promote diversity, and lower the deficit. The program insures itself via relatively steep fees charged to every alien and member of the family admitted in to the USA.
