WASHINGTON, DC – The starting signal has been given for the U.S. government’s Green Card lottery program, which provides residency to 55,000 foreign nationals. To be eligible, individuals must complete an application form, meet specific requirements, and hope for a successful outcome. The registration period runs from October 4th to November 7th.
It’s important to note that Brazil, along with citizens from Bangladesh, Canada, China, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea, Venezuela, and Vietnam, is not included in this program. These countries are excluded due to a history of illegal immigration to the United States.
To obtain the highly sought-after document, one simply needs to be chosen through a computer-based random selection process. The eligibility criteria for program participation include having completed high school or having two years of documented work experience in specific fields.
According to the Department of State, the majority of Green Cards are granted to immigrants from Egypt, Sudan, Russia, and Algeria.
