The Congressionally mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program makes available 50,000 diversity visas (DV) annually, drawn from random selection among all entries to persons who meet strict eligibility requirements from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.
The visas are distributed on a regional basis, with each region sending fewer immigrants to the US in the previous 5 years receiving more diversity visas. To receive a diversity visa and immigrate to the United States, winners must meet all eligibility requirements under U.S. law to qualify, and must be interviewed before the 50,000 green cards are distributed.
