The Lottery, officially called the Diversity Immigrant Visa program, makes available 50,000 permanent resident visas annually to people from different countries worldwide. In fact, 15 million people apply to the Green Card Lottery each year.
This is an inviting program, but with so many people participating, we have to wonder if there are ways to improve our chances of winning. As it turns out, there are.
- Form Completion: The path towards obtaining a Green Card is not simply a matter of completing a form or two. These forms must be completed very accurately, completely, and professionally and must be compiled in the correct order, with all of the proper supporting documents.
- Errors: The application forms cannot contain inaccuracies (whether mistakes or actual falsehoods), there can be no omission of details.
- Duplications: There can be no duplicate applications from the same person.
- Photos: Photographs must meet all technical requirements. The photographs attached to your Green Card application must be of certain color, size and pixel density. If any of these requirements are not up to standard, the applicant will be denied. Therefore, it is always better to seek the assistance of professionals.
- Supporting Documents: You will have to gather all the required documents before you apply. For example, you would need some sort of a document to prove your country of birth. Likewise, you have to provide a certificate to prove that you have a degree or a diploma and to prove your work experience.
It’s a rather complicated process, but with a properly completed application, your chances of winning the lottery are significantly better.
With so much riding on the proper completion of the application, many lottery applicants use professional organizations, such as USACITO, to help them with the process. USACITO has a team of immigration experts that walk the applicant through the entire submission process, thereby avoiding costly errors and delays and assuring correctly completed lottery applications. USACITO will also make sure that your application is submitted in a timely and secure fashion and handle all the formalities including receipt of your Green Card.
