Green Card Lottery despite Corona crisis?

It is an uncertain time, and the world is struggling to cope with the effects of the Coronavirus, although the situation is slowly returning to normality in many countries. Below, you will find an overview of the impact of the Corona crisis for Green Card holders, Green Card winners, and USA travelers!

Does the Green Card Lottery DV-2023 take place?

Yes, the Green Card Lottery DV-2023 will be held this year as usual. The current situation due to the Coronavirus has no effect on this!

Especially in times like these, the importance of the Green Card becomes evident. Since Green Card holders have almost all the rights of a US citizen, they are still allowed to enter the USA even in the current crisis situation.

Therefore do not hesitate any longer! With THE AMERICAN DREAM, you can already sign up now for the Green Card Lottery DV-2023.

Were Green Card winners drawn last year despite the Corona crisis?

Yes, all participants of the last Green Card Lottery could breathe a sigh of relief, because the lottery draw was not affected by the current corona crisis and was simply postponed by the US authorities by one month. If you participated in the Green Card Lottery with THE AMERICAN DREAM, we have checked your status as usual and already informed you about your result.

Restrictions in the USA due to the Coronavirus

To contain and combat the increase of COVID-19 cases, the US government decided to ban non-Americans from 33 countries from entering the country in 2020, which will also affect the Schengen area until November 8th, 2021.

However, the so-called Corona Travel Ban never applied to Green Card holders and was most recently relaxed for Green Card aspirants so that activation trips to the USA could still take place.

Effective November 8th, 2021, the US government now intends to finally lift the Corona Travel Ban for all travelers with full Corona vaccination.

Can I go on my Green Card activation trip?

Green Card winners who must make their activation trip to the USA can enter the country with a negative Corona test and a full vaccination against COVID-19.

The guidelines for testing can be found on the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) website. The definition of a complete vaccination is determined by the CDC, which in turn follows the recommendations of the WHO.

The Green Card is crisis-proof

As a Green Card holder, you have almost all the rights of a US citizen. That's why the in-demand US immigrant visa is still the safest way to live and work in the US indefinitely and worry-free.

The easiest way to obtain a Green Card is through the annual Green Card Lottery, in which the US government gives away 55,000 US immigrant visas to participants from around the world.

Signing up for the Green Card Lottery takes just a few minutes and, if you're lucky, will save you years of paperwork with US authorities and potential employers.
