Apropos of the Immigration Act 1990, in the United States of America, there was the establishment of Diversity Visa (DV) program. The Diversity Immigrant Visa program is the Green Card Lottery Program which was mandated congressionally to receive US Permanent Resident card. Under this program, 50,000 permanent resident visas are made available every year. Applicants are selected from the countries with low rate of immigration in the previous five years. This program has been conducted to diversify the immigrant population in the US. After the name of its sponsor, this program is also known as Schumer program. EDV result was completely based on random selection of candidates who filled edv form.
The eligibility for this DV program in the USA is determined by the candidates’ country of birth. Nepal is one of the eligible countries for the American DV Program. 50,000 Diversity Visas are available each year. However, no countries can receive more than 7% of total DVs that is 3500 per year. 100,000 applicants are selected at first for the DV program. It is because, after the selection, the applicants need to be qualified for the visa which includes background and security check. Also, some may choose not to go further with the proceedings. Thus, even though you are selected, you might not be granted the DV sometimes. This US DV program has been administered exclusively online since 2012 AD. The applicants can verify online whether they are selected or not and winners are also notified online.
The American EDV (Electronic Diversity Visa) has been around for a while now, and people who are cognizant are applying for it. www.dvlottery.state.gov is the authorised website for EDV lottery. Here, you can apply for DV and also check for your selection and the final result. This website is managed by The Bureau of Consular Affairs, US Department of State.
