Kuwait & The Green Card Lottery
The United States of America is very much about adding diversity
to its country by having immigrants from all parts of the world
to live and work there, consequently implementing the Green Card Lottery,
through which you can win a lifetime visa to live and work in the US.
This article will help you understand the exact procedure
you need to take to apply for the green card through the
official US government Green Card Lottery.
What is the Green Card Lottery?
Attainment of the green card is now easier since the Green Card Lottery
has been put into action by the Department of State granting as many
as 55,000 immigrant visas to people throughout the world if they meet
the eligibility requirements.
You will be eligible to live and work in the US with the option to bring
your spouse and any children under the age of 21 if you are the winner
of this lottery.
The diversity lottery selects the winners via a random computerized
selection process from all eligible green card applications.
Eligibility of Kuwait for the Green Card Program
Eligibility of a country depends on the number of immigrants that country
has sent in the previous years, and if a country has sent more than 50,000
immigrants to the US in the last five years, the country is claimed
ineligible to apply for the green card lottery.
And because Kuwait's rate of immigrants in the US is relatively low it is considered
eligible and therefore Kuwaiti citizens can apply for a green card
through the Diversity Visa Program (Green Card Lottery) and get access
to live, work and study permanently in a country which boasts for
the diversity of its culture.
Winners are allowed to bring their spouse and any children under the age
of 21 years along with them and enjoy the rights of a permanent citizen
in the US. 70 green card visas were granted to the citizens of Kuwait in
the year 2010 through the Diversity Visa Program. Those Kuwaiti citizens
were able to apply for the green card to live and work in US.
Non Immigrant Visa Alternatives
If you are a student and want to study or want to go to the US for
temporary work purposes or for tourism or business reasons, you can
