Does my work experience matter?

Your Work Experience Can Qualify You for the DV Lottery

Your work experience can help you qualify to participate in the US Visa Lottery.

If you have at least 2 years of work experience (within the last 5 years) in a profession that requires at least 2 years of training or experience to perform, then you do qualify to participate in the Green Card Lottery.

Such work experience overrides the Green Card Lottery's education requirement, which mandates that you have either a minimum level of education that is equivalent to an American high school (secondary school) diploma or a vocational school degree.

So if you do not satisfy the education requirement, yes, your work experience can matter in determining your eligibility to participate in the DV Lottery program.
