The DV-1 Program
The 1990 Immigration Act established a permanent diversity immigration program and 55,000 diversity immigrants are chosen by lottery annually. The program uses a formula to categorize countries which alters your chances of winning based on your nation of origin. Countries in low-admission regions will receive a greater portion of the total allocation than countries in high-admission regions. Lottery winners are selected by random from petitions received during a designated annual application period of time.
