Have you been considering applying for the Diversity Immigration Visa program but aren’t certain if it’s the right course of action for you and your family? Did you recently discover that the winners of the 2024 lottery were announced and wished that you were among them? Every year, 50,000 lottery slots are made available. There are many, many more applicants than there are winners. Even if you do win, the process has to be carefully managed so that you give yourself and yours the best chance at immigrating how you want. A Diversity Visa immigration lawyer from our firm can assist you in a variety of ways.
Making Sure You Meet the Eligibility Threshold
Determining eligibility for this visa can actually be more complex than many may realize. For example, there are certain countries where citizens are not eligible for the lottery. However, even if you are a citizen of one of those countries, you may still be eligible for the lottery. How? In the event that neither of your parents were born in your native country nor made their home there when you were born, you can claim that you’re native to the country of birth of one of your parents. Alternatively, you can claim your spouse’s country of birth for the purposes of the lottery. However, you can only do the last if your spouse is eligible to receive a visa to accompany you to America. This is how complicated this can get and it’s one more way we can help.
Keeping Track of Details on Your Behalf
We understand how important your immigration is to you and we also understand how you have the rest of your life to live while going through the immigration process. As such, we can take care of all of the details that matter, putting together the best case for you, strengthening your case, and so forth. We can also stay on top of important news, such as the recent update from the US Department of State – Bureau of Consular Affairs that “document submission to KCC (has been) suspended for DV-2024 and onward.” By staying on top of the news, we can better represent our clients.
What to Keep in Mind Even if You Win
Winning the lottery is a good thing. It gives you a great chance to get a Green Card. However, therein lies the rub: the American government always declares more winners than there are Green Cards. In a real way, the process begins once you win. Following up as quickly and as thoroughly as possible is crucial. Many of our clients have reached out to us after they won so that we can prepare the forms for them in the right way, collect all of the documents they need, and prepare them for the interview and anything else that may come their way.
