Great Britain got approved for the Green Card Lottery DV-2025

The US State Department has made UK-born individuals eligible for the DV-2025 Green Card Lottery. This move will open up the opportunity for countless Britons to live and work permanently in the US.

A historic decision thanks to COVID-19?

It is the first time in the history of the US Green Card Lottery that the UK has been allowed to participate. The inclusion is believed to be because the number of British immigrants to the US plummeted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Only countries that have sent fewer than 50,000 immigrants to the United States in the past five years are considered eligible for the Diversity Visa Program, as the Green Card Lottery is officially called.

The inclusion of UK in the Green Card Lottery is a historic decision.

US immigration experts: Brits should act fast

Since British immigration behavior has also picked up steam as the pandemic has subsided, US immigration experts do not view Britain's classification as a Green Card Lottery country as a permanent condition.

It is, therefore, strongly advised that any Brit with out-migration intentions should quickly enroll in the Green Card Lottery to secure one of 55,000 US immigrant visas.

Green Card Lottery: a huge chance for USA fans

The Diversity Visa Lottery has always been a beacon of hope for people around the world because it allows immigration to the US without having to show an employer sponsor or a family bond.

The hurdles in the Green Card Lottery are also very low in other respects: the online application can be completed in a few minutes and requires no additional documents apart from a photo. Only after winning do applicants have to prove in the immigration process that they have a suitable school-leaving qualification or vocational training.

The advantages of a Green Card

Only the Green Card allows you to live, work, and study in the US indefinitely. As a Permanent Resident, as a Green Card holder is also called, you enjoy the following privileges:

  • You can reside anywhere in the US and seek employment.
  • You can practice any profession or start a business.
  • You can sponsor family members to receive a Green Card as well.
  • You can apply for US citizenship once you meet certain criteria.
  • You are entitled to social benefits after a certain period of time.

How to apply for a Green Card

In the online Green Card Lottery application, you must first create an account using your email address and name before providing personal information such as your date and country of birth.

During the application process, you will be asked to upload a photo meeting certain requirements. These include, for example, a neutral facial expression, a simple light background, and no accessories that obscure the face.


The US authorities disqualify applications for even minor errors, such as an incorrect photo format. The government-licensed immigration consultants at the The American Dream team will ensure that your application meets the required standards, saving you from possible disqualification.

Apply for a Green Card through The American Dream

If you win the Green Card Lottery, you will go through the immigration process with your The American Dream advisor, which includes an interview at the embassy or consulate and a medical exam.

Successful winners of DV-2025 will be able to immigrate to the US starting in 2025.
