Green Card Program Step by Step - How to get a US Green Card


Applicants for US visas 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 be eligible to enter 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 what steps are involved in getting a Green Card via the Green Card Lottery, also known as the Diversity Visa program. 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.

There are ONLY 50,000 diversity visas available. Because it is likely that some of the first 50,000 applicants who are selected will not qualify for visas or pursue their cases to obtain a visa, more than 50,000 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 50,000 diversity visas available.

STEP 10. Visa application documents are submitted to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC).

We forward the visa application forms to you, and we will assist you with filling out the forms, as it is quite complicated.
