The America DV Lottery Program, also known as the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, is a program established by the U.S. government that provides an opportunity for people from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States to apply for a chance to obtain a U.S. Permanent Resident Visa, also known as a Green Card.
The program is designed to promote diversity in the United States by providing a pathway for people from a variety of countries and backgrounds to come and live in the U.S. permanently.
The program is conducted annually and allows a limited number of applicants to enter the lottery.
