Diversity Visa Program Opens Green Card Lottery
The Diversity Visa Program that encourages immigration diversity has been renewed for the year 2016.

The program provides opportunity to people from countries that have low immigration rates to the US to seek permanent residency status. Now, the Diversity Visa program has opened for the 2016 lottery, where 50,000 visas are made available.

Catherine Wadhwani, partner with Fox Rothschild’s immigration law practice said that it is a great chance to expose their country to cultural diversity. She mentioned that this program is not applicable for nations with high immigration rates, which means countries that have sent over 50,000 immigrants to the US within the last five years. China, Mexico and Brazil are few countries amongst high immigration rates. However, the immigrants from these countries will be able to apply for green cards through the regular modes.

She added that though the applicants win the lottery they need to qualify for the regular green card process, which include clear records and satisfying other requirements.

It has to be mentioned here that applicants will be able to apply for the Diversity Visa Program till noon of November 3 and all the applications are done online. Each applicant will be getting a unique ID number. Lottery winners will be able to view their status on the State Department website starting from May 2015, with clear instructions on how to proceed further.
