AMERICAN GREEN CARD VISA ELIGIBILITY ASSESSMENT
The American Green Card Visa Eligibility Assessment is a free questionnaire completed on green-card.com.au, which has been specifically designed to provide you with a preliminary assessment of your ability to satisfy the American Green Card Lottery criteria. You should not rely on this result alone as a true indication of your ability to apply for a visa to the USA.
If you wish to obtain a realistic assessment of your eligibility for migration to the United States of America, you should contact an immigration lawyer who is licensed to evaluate your eligibility.
PROVISION OF SERVICE
Upon registering your interest and by completing the Eligibility Assessment, you are able to purchase a Service offered by USDVL. Upon payment, the Service will be delivered to you within the time frame provided for in the Service description. However, in certain cases this may take longer, depending on the complexity of the Client's Profile.
The Service to be provided to the Client may vary from time to time.
ONLINE MIGRATION SPECIALIST
One of our Green Card Visa specialists will reply to your query within four (4) working days of receiving the question. In some cases, it may take longer (than the four (4) working days), depending on the nature of the question.
USDVL reserves the right not to respond to questions that:
• relate to non-migration matters; or
• are not submitted in English; or
• are not related to the Client’s Profile; or
• are not appropriate.
If multiple questions are submitted in one session, USDVL reserves the right to request that the Client resubmit the questions separately, or to limit the amount of questions asked in a 24-hour period.
As soon as payment is received, the Client is deemed to have engaged the Service of USDVL. As such, payments are non-refundable.
