DV Lottery: Dream Come True To Be An American

United States of America is a country where most of the inhabitants are immigrants. At first people from Europe and later from Africa and Asia migrated to America. The Latin American people also migrated in huge number especially the Spanish speaking people who constitute a major ethic group amongst the Americans.

The Government of USA still acknowledges the fact and do also in principle consider people migrating to USA. Each year officially the US Government accepts upto 55,000 immigrants from countries from all over world except the countries which have sent more than 50,000 immigrants to the US over the last five years.

Though 55,000 immigrants seems quite a substantial figure, but the reality is that millions apply in this immigration process as a result the US Immigration Authorities have now developed a computerized DV Lottery process to select the potential candidates.

A simple online application system has been developed for this purpose. Applications had  been received online from October 3, 2007 to December 2, 2007.  A simple questionnaire had to be filled up for this purpose and pictures of the applicants along with his/her family members under 21 years of age had to be posted along with the application.

No professional help was required to fulfill this process, as the questionnaire was very simple and only basic information required. High School Graduates should have been able to respond to these queries and the minimum required qualification for an applicant is High School Graduation.

According to US Regulations, the applicant has to have at least a high school education and two years work experience in any occupation which requires at least two years training and experience. The spouse of the applicant as well as the children who are under 21 years of age are eligible to apply along with the applicant.

These applicants will participate in the DV Lottery and the successful participants will be processed for immigration during the year 2008. Around 50,000 applicants will be entertained through this lottery. This is an annual program of the US Government to accept immigrants from various parts of the world officially.
