Recent trends reveal that the number of entries received each year to compete for the 55,000 green cards available in each DV Lottery program has been declining.
In fact, in 2019, the number of entries dropped from 14 million to under 7 million. More than half of the people who applied in 2018 did not try again. This fact helps those who continue to be interested in getting their U.S. visa through the Green Card Lottery. Your chance of success has improved by more than two times.
Right now, aspiring U.S. immigrants oftentimes must wait for years (the shortest wait being two years) to get their U.S. visa. An additional benefit of the Green Card Lottery process is that it offers the best way to avoid this long visa wait time.
The U.S. Government needs you in America to add diversity to its population. When you win the DV Lottery you help make that happen.
