How to win the Green Card Program in USA - Step by Step

Applicants for the American Visa Lottery are randomly chosen in the Green Card Program. Selected applicants and their immediate family members will receive Diversity Immigrant Visas, which will give them the legal right to live and work permanently in the United States. You and your family can get Green Cards, but you must apply immediately for the upcoming Green Card Program to get the best chance of being selected.

To win a Green Card via the Green Card Program, you must follow all of the 16 steps listed below, but don’t worry we will assist you with the entire process. All steps are very important, which is all the more reason why you should always use a professional immigration service like US Green Card Office to avoid your application being disqualified.

Our applicants from all over the world regularly ask us about the steps involved in getting a Green Card via the USA Green Card Lottery, also known as the Diversity Visa Program or the America Visa Lottery. Applying isn’t necessarily difficult, but there are some important steps that applicants must follow very carefully in order to get the best chance of being selected and eventually moving to the United States.

Since 1998, our Immigration team here at US Green Card Office have assisted millions of applicants with completing the 16-step application process. Our service does not only include assisting users with an error-free application, but we also help all our applicants submit the DS-260 to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) after being selected. Even more importantly, we make sure that all of our applicants are well prepared for the visa interview in their local American Embassy. Being well prepared for the visa interview is essential if you want to pass and eventually be granted an Immigrant Visa that allows you and your family to enter the United States.

STEP 6. Your application is submitted to the US Government.

We will submit your application to the US. Government at the right time and in the right place.

STEP 7. Your personal confirmation number is received from the US Government.

When we receive the submission confirmation number received by the US Government, we will upload the number to your personal account. Keep this number safe, as this is your proof that your application has been submitted successfully and officially approved.

STEP 8. Your application will now be part of the Diversity Visa Program drawing.

The draw will take place through a random computer-generated draw giving all applicants an equal chance of being selected. The process is closely monitored and verified by the US State Department.

STEP 9. All winner notification letters are sent out from the US Government directly by us.

The US Government will select up to 125,000 winners or more, and as soon as they do, you will be notified directly by us, so that we can assist you in filing the DS-260 Visa Application form online.

There are up to 55,000 Diversity Visas available. Because it is likely that some of the first 55,000 applicants who are selected will not qualify for visas or pursue their cases to obtain a visa, more than 55,000 applications will be selected by the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC), so as to ensure that all of the available Diversity Visa visas are issued. However, this also means that there will not be a sufficient number of visas for all those who are initially selected. It is therefore very important to act promptly when your application is selected. We will assist you so you have the best chance of obtaining one of the 55,000 Diversity Visas available.

STEP 10. Your DS-260 online application is submitted to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC).

After receiving your winning notification letter directly from us, we will guide you on filing the DS-260 online application, as this step can be pretty complicated. It is essential to be well prepared before you begin submitting the DS-260 online application. Therefore, please contact our immigration team if you have any doubts or questions about the online application. Any mistake made on the DS-260 application might lead to a Visa Interview delay or disqualification, and you might risk losing your chance to obtain one of the 55,000 Diversity Visas available. Therefore, this step should be taken very seriously.

STEP 11. Your visa interview appointment letter from the Kentucky Consular Center will be sent out.
