Getting enrolled into U.S. Visa Lottery

U.S. offers “Green Cards” to many of the immigrant applicants through a long procedure, however, there is a special process known as “Visa Lottery” wherein an applicant can try his luck. The system is also known as “Green Card Lottery System”.

The specialty of the system

This system is based on luck of the applicant more than anything else. Through this system the country offers “Green Card” to almost 50,000 people. And, the most important point to be noted is that the lottery is available only for people belonging to certain countries only.

Eligible countries

The offer is available to only those countries which show a low percentage of immigration. U.S. aims at making the population of the country as diversified and cosmopolitan as possible. In fact, the countries showing a high per cent of representation in terms of migration are not allowed to participate in the lottery.

Registration Process

The process of making an application is absolutely free. One person cannot submit multiple applications; one found to be doing so will be disqualified.

While filling up the form one has to be careful about every personal information he or she provides. Married individuals also need to furnish information about their marital partners and children if they have any. Photographs are an important requirement to be furnished.

In terms of qualification one should have at least a high school certificate or degree, and an applicant has to meet the requirement on job front too.

Selection is done randomly not by any individual but by the computer, this makes hot process free of any biasness.

Preservation of certain documents

The confirmation slip one receives after submitting the application should be preserved well, because it is an important document to prove your application. This will also help you to follow up the status of your application.

Precautions to be taken

When you are filling up the form you have to be more than careful in furnishing every possible detail. You have to ensure that all the details about your date of birth, place of birth, educational qualifications, job experience, and other personal details are mentioned as accurately as possible.
