An approximate 50,000 immigrant visas are given by a drawing from random selection by the U.S. Department of State through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. This DV lottery gives the opportunity for applicants of countries with low rates of immigration to the United States the chance to receive a U.S. Permanent Resident Card or « Green Card ».
Yes, Our legal office would be glad to assist you in your DV 2019 Green Card Lottery entry. We will be charging a fee of $250 per entry if you would prefer we register an entry for you. As well, we will make sure to notify you of your status once it will be accessible online.
Would you like for us to submit the entry for you? Please email us!

** If you are interested in submitting your entry we strongly suggest you do it as soon as possible. As the closing date for registration approaches, the more applicants will be trying to register online and the slower the system will get.

You will be required to complete your entry with some personal information:
