DV-2025 Green Card Lottery results will be available online from tomorrow, May 4, 2024

The DV-2025 Diversity Visa Program results will be available online beginning tomorrow, Saturday, May 4, 2024 at noon EDT.

The registration period for DV-2025 was between October 4, 2023 and November 7, 2023.

The Diversity Visa Program, colloquially known as the Green Card Lottery, is administered by the US Department of State and makes up to 55,000 green cards available on a lottery basis to nationalities with historically low immigration rates to the US. The goal of the program is to diversify America’s immigrant population.

To participate in the program, applicants must be from countries where fewer than 50,000 of their citizens have migrated to the U.S. in the past five years. For DV-2025, residents of the following countries are not eligible to participate in the program because more than 50,000 of their residents have migrated to the U.S. in the past five years: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, the People’s Republic of China (including the mainland and Hong Kong) Kong born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Republic of Korea (South Korea), Venezuela and Vietnam. Residents of Macau SAR and Taiwan are eligible.

Those who submitted entries can check to see if they are the lucky winners at this link: https://dvprogram.state.gov. Participants will need their confirmation number to check winning status.

Those who win the lottery will have to undergo an immigrant visa process at a US embassy or consulate starting in early 2025 before they can move to the US. To qualify for an immigrant visa (green card), winners must have at least a high school education, or at least two years of work experience in an occupation that requires at least another two years of education or experience.
