Which of My Family Members Get a Green Card?

Immediate family members get green cards.

When your DV Lottery entry is selected, all family members you included on your initial Green Card Lottery application form are eligible to receive a green card.

The family members you can include on your initial application include your lawful spouse and all children who are unmarried and under 21 years old (including natural children, spouse's children from a different marriage, and adopted children).

If you win the DV Lottery and have a new spouse or children that were not included on your initial Green Card Lottery application, you will still be able to add them to the diversity visa application and they will be eligible to receive their green cards.
