Green Card Lottery Results

Every year in May the U.S. Department of State is publishing the results of the Green Card Lottery - also known as DV Lottery. You can check your Green Card status online and all applicants who signed up with The American Dream will also be notified via email and mail whether they are among the lucky winners.

How are the Green Card Winners chosen?

Once you have submitted your application for the Green Card Lottery, you will receive an individual confirmation code. This is an automated process and cannot be influenced. Every year in May or June the US authorities randomly select approximately 55,000 of these numbers by using a computer-generated program. These are the winners who can apply for a Green Card.

Please note: Participants must check their status online afterwards. The US authorities will not inform them about the Green Card Lottery results.

However, if you have participated with the help of The American Dream, we will inform you right after the drawing about your status.

 

What do I do if I have won the Green Card Lottery?

After you have won, you must send your official application to the US authorities.

If you have participated with the help of The American Dream, we will send you all the necessary forms and instructions you need to apply successfully.

In case you need additional help, we are happy to assist you. Depending on the type of service you booked with The American Dream, our Green Card experts will guide you through every step of the process and undertake most of the application part for you.

Green Card Winners Worldwide 

The European frontrunner of DV2018 was Russia followed by Uzbekistan and Albania. In Western Europe, Germany once again topped the list with 886 winners followed by France with 649 and Italy with 546 winners.

Over the last few years, Germany has had the pleasure of having the most winners in Western Europe. In Switzerland and Austria more than 174 winners are celebrating their luck and getting closer to making their American dream come true. In other countries, the number of winners may be overlooked at first glance like the total of 4 winners for both Malta and Cyprus.

Every winner in every country across the globe is celebrating their win, especially the 2,897 winners in Algeria and the 3,170 winners in Ghana! 

And it doesn’t end there: 748 Australian winners are ready to pack their bags and head to the USA along with 1,134 Venezuelans.  

Those who would like to compare the statistics for each eligible country on their own should take a look at our Winner statistics of the worldwide distribution of Green Card Lottery winners.  

 

Green Card Distribution per Continent 

The number of participants on one continent does not influence the odds of winning for others on a different continent because there are different quotas in place for each continent. Keeping the quotas separate increases every participant’s chance to win, no matter the country!    

 Each continent and country receives a fair portion of Green Cards:

  • Every eligible country in the Green Card Lottery receives a maximum number of Green Cards. No country receives more than 3,500 a year which equates to around 7%.
  • Thereby, continents like Europe and Africa, with many participants, have large quotas. Each receive around 20,000 Green Cards each. 

Each continent and country receives a fair portion of Green Cards.
