What Rights Does the Green Card Give Me?

Your rights with a green card.

When you get your U.S. Diversity Visa through the DV Lottery program, the visa is equivalent to a "green card."

A green card gives you the legal right to live and work permanently in the United States and to enter and leave the country freely. Green card holders also receive health, education, and other benefits. The green card does not affect present citizenship. A green card holder may later apply for United States citizenship, if desired.
