United State Government List 52 Countries That are Not Eligible to Apply For DV Lottery Visa 2019

The Green Card Lottery popularly known as the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, is a United States-sponsored lottery program for the United States Permanent Resident Card.

The 1991 Immigration Act introduced the current and permanent Diversity Visa (DV) program.

The lottery is managed by the Department of State and conducted under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) as amended by the Immigration Act of 1991.

The lottery provides 55,000 permanent immigration visas each year, and aims to diversify the immigrant population in the United States by selecting applicants from low-immigration countries over the previous five years.

Currently, countries that have sent 55,000 or more immigrants to the US over the past six years are ineligible.
