Green Card Lottery

7 months ago

Every year the green card lottery conducted by the US Government helps people earn and enjoy the lawful status of permanent residency in the US. This helps them in end number of things and a ticket for few to enjoy earning and living in US permanently and without any major concerns. Most of the legal rights are also available to the people who have a green card and they can work freely.

The criteria of the lottery system:

The DV lottery system is designed by the government to help them get a green card and the winners are selected randomly. This is a computer generated random lottery system. Every year 50,000 green cards are issued to the people and there are some eligibility criteria which need to be fulfilled. Every country resident cannot apply for the green card. The resident should belong to an eligible country and this should be his or her birth place and not the place where he or she is living right now.

Another criterion is, an individual should have a high school education certificate or something similar to that; or he or she should have two years of work experience in the last five years.

Most of the countries are not eligible because any country that has a lot of migrants moving to US is not allowed to apply. If in the last five years there have been more than 50,000 migrants that have moved to US then that country resident will not be eligible to take part in the lottery. However, if your spouse belongs to an eligible country then you can apply for the green card lottery. Children who are below 21 years can come to US with their parents. If you get a green card then even your spouse and children will get the green card.

Improve your chances of being selected in lottery:

If you would like your lottery application not to be rejected then you need to make sure that your application has no errors. You will have to fill the details properly and correctly for which you can take help from the US green card office that will deal your personal information with strict confidentiality and guide you thoroughly for making your application error free. They will also submit the application at the right place on the right time.

Applying for DV lottery is free but if you would like the guidance to fill the application correctly then that service will come at a fair price. However, the advantages of taking that service are many. Firstly, your chances of rejection will be none or less and if your name is selected for winning the lottery then you will enjoy many benefits.

Studying and working in US will become more convenient and you will enjoy maximum legal rights too. You will be able to start your own company or business and will be eligible for the retirement benefits or social benefits. However, yo need to work for ten years before you retire.
