Diversity Visas (Visa Lottery)

In order to encourage cultural diversity, immigrants may enter an annual lottery for one of 55,000 visas allocated to countries with low levels of immigration to the United States. Mexican citizens are not eligible to enter the lottery due to the high level of Mexican immigration to the United States. Eligible immigrants may enter the lottery for a diversity visa here. There is no filing fee to enter your name.

Please note that immigration law is extraordinarily complicated, and for every rule there is an exception. The information on this website is therefore only a survey of the general principles of American immigration law, and should not be taken as legal advice regarding a specific case or fact pattern.
