Previous Green Card Lottery Results

Countries whose natives are eligible to participate in the American Green Card Lottery are listed each year by the US State Department. If fewer than 50,000 natives of a country immigrated to the United States during the previous five years, that country will be listed by the US State Department on a list of countries whose natives are eligible to participate in the American Green Card Lottery for that DV-year (assuming they also meet the education or work experience requirements). In addition, Green Cards granted through this Green Card Lottery are distributed among six geographic regions. Within each region, no single country may receive more than 7% of the available Green Cards in any one year.
