“HI this is immigration attorney Abhisha Parikh and today I am going to be going over the DV lottery. i am often asked by clients how do i get a green card if i don’t have a million dollars to buy one? or an employer to sponsor me? Or i do not have a family to sponsor me as well? Well, there is one option, the DV lottery. This is a lottery run by the DOS every year where you can actually win a green card. it is a simple process that is free but you must apply online.In the past there has been several scam visas in companies who say they can get you a green card through the DV lottery. That is not true. There is only website where you can apply: http://www.dvlottery.state.gov, and that is run by the government. Every year the us makes 50000 visas available  from certain countries who do not have a high rate of immigration to the USA. It opens in October of every fiscal year and ends approx in November of every fiscal year. Now there are some requirements to enter the DV lottery.  First of all you have to be eligible to enter. Which means you have to be from a country  that is allowed to enter the DV lottery. or you can claimed to country of a spouse or if you are born in a country  where your parents are not residents and have never resided there you can claim the state of your parents citizenship. In addition, you should have a high school diploma or 2 years of work experience in a field that requires at least 2 years of work experience. There is only one entry per person.  so you can enter, your spouse can enter or older children can enter as well who are over 18 and qualified. you will have to answer certain questions on an online application such as your name and address. and you will have to upload a photo. You will then be notified by the DOS if you are one of the lucky people who are selected. That is not the end of the process. that is just the beginning. you will be required to submit forms and supporting documents to the Kentucky consular center for yourself and for your family members so if you are selected for the lottery you can bring your entire family to the us. This is an excellent opportunity whether you have applied for a green card through  family member or through employer and to try to speed up the process.”
