Registering for the US LOTTERY VISA takes place online and is non-binding. If you have ever played with the idea of moving to the USA, or you have been a long-time, die-hard America fan, then you won’t regret participating in the Green Card Lottery. The application can be done online.
In case you win, you decide if you want to accept the US LOTTERY VISA or not. Basically, the doors of opportunity are open to you and the Green Card gives you the flexibility to decide if you want to permanently LIVE AND WORK IN USA.
Most importantly, this flexibility is given to you through winning a Green Card. In the application form for the Green Card Lottery, you must give personal details like your first and last name, date of birth, country and city of birth, passport information, level of education as well as a digital photo.
This information is also required for each member of your family, with the exception of their passport details. The US LOTTERY VISA program is available to all immigrants seeking a better life in America, there are numerous jobs available in USA and scholarship available to applicants.
US GREEN CARD: LIVING AND WORKING IN USA
Anyone who wants to have an unlimited residence and work permit for the USA needs the most famous visa in the world: the Green Card. With very few exceptions, the Green Card holder has the same rights as a US citizen.
WHAT IS US LOTTERY VISA?
The Green Card is an official ID document that allows its owner to live and work in the United States of America without any time limit.
Most people are familiar with the legendary Green Card Lottery, in which US fans worldwide can fulfill their dream of emigrating to America each year.
However, due to the tremendous hurdles and long waiting times for most family and work-based Green Cards, for most US fans, the lottery is the only way to emigrate to the States. 55,000 people win the lottery each year. Those who meet the requirements and do not make any mistakes in the application process have excellent chances and do not need extraordinary skills.
INCREASE YOUR CHANCES TO GET US LOTTERY VIS
Applying for a Green Card through employment or for a family reunion is time-consuming and complex. With a few exceptions (for example, for spouses of US citizens), you must prepare for several years of waiting. The solution to this problem is the Green Card Lottery.
But even this has hurdles and pitfalls. The US government can disqualify you for even a small mistake. That’s why every year, thousands of US citizens seek the help of The American Dream’s Green Card experts to increase their chances of getting a Green Card.

You will find a detailed explanation of the Green Card Lottery process in our guide Get A Green Card In Just A Few Steps. Summary: you will go through eight phases on your way to your Green Card.
With The American Dream, you can register for the Green Card Lottery all year round. However, if you participate on your own on the website of the US authorities, you only have four weeks between October and November.
- Winners’ draw and winner notification
Time frame: May to June of the next year. If you have participated through The American Dream, we will send you a comprehensive winner’s package.
- Official Green Card application through DS-260 form

- Notification of an interview appointment by the KCC
Time frame: depending on the case number (also: rank number), visible in the Visa Bulletin. Before your appointment at the US Consulate or Embassy, you need to go through a medical examination by a US government-approved medical examiner.
- Activation Trip, the first entry into the USA
Time frame: must happen no later than six months after the medical examination. There is no minimum length of stay for your activation trip. On the activation trip to the USA, you will receive a stamp (I-551 Stamp) in your passport at the US airport, which identifies you as a legitimate GreenCard holder. There is no minimum length of stay for your activation journey. If you wish, you can fly home immediately after receiving the stamp.
