and live in the US
Through the DV 2005 Green Card Lottery Program, the United States government grants 50,000 Immigration Visas
(also known as Green Cards) to individuals from eligible countries to work and
live in the United States as part of the Diversity Immigrant Visa Association.
The list of eligible countries is comprised of those which have a low immigration
rate to the United States (defined as less than 50,000 in the last five years).
Selected at random from a computerized lottery system, Green Card recipients may
travel freely to and from the United States and are considered permanent residents.
They are legally entitled to work as well as receive health, education, taxation,
retirement, social security as well as other benefits. They may also serve as
sponsors for their relatives seeking Immigration Visas (Green Cards). A Green
Card holder may later apply for US Citizenship and still maintain citizenship
in his/her country of origin. Green Cards are valid for a lifetime.
