Green Card winner statistics 2023

The Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) has announced the detailed winner statistics for the most recent Green Card Lottery in the Visa Bulletin of September 2023.

Your winning chances with The American Dream

Every year, countless USA fans send in their applications for the Green Card Lottery, only to be denied in the end. Up to 40% of all applicants are disqualified each year due to formal errors.

These include, for example, photos that do not meet the formal requirements (this causes more than half of all disqualifications), incorrect information about family status, or various careless mistakes when filling out the form. Since there are many other factors that can cause premature disqualification from the lottery process, the chances of winning a Green Card decrease considerably for many "do-it-yourself" participants.

Unfortunately, the US authorities never inform the disqualified participants about their mistakes. That's why many people participate with the same application data every year, without knowing that they're depriving themselves of the chance to win again and again.

US flag and dice


The American Dream guarantees that no client will be disqualified due to formal errors in the application process by providing professional advice from licensed immigration consultants, the double checking of all documents, and an application process that has been streamlined for almost 30 years.

This ensures unique and optimal chances of winning. All winners also receive comprehensive support along the way until their Green Card is issued. An all-round carefree service that maintains your chances at all times.

Green Card contingents of the individual continents

Each continent has its own contingent. Therefore, the number of participants on other continents does not influence the chances of winning for one's own continent. Europeans, for example, have very good chances of winning a Green Card – also in the most recent draw, the odds were as high as 1:45! There is a simple explanation for this:

  • Only a maximum number of Green Cards is awarded per country in the Green Card Lottery, which is approximately 3,500 per year.
  • The largest quotas per continent go to Europe and Africa (over 20,000 Green Cards each).
