You were not married when your application was submitted or you got married after your application was sent? That is also no problem. As long as you marry before the consulate appointment or directly after receiving your winner’s notification, your better half can still come with you.
Let the American adventure begin. Same-sex marriage is subject to the same regulations as long as the marriage is valid according to US laws.
Can children over the age of 21, siblings or parents also apply for a Green Card?
Even unmarried children over the age of 21 can get a slice of your Green Card lucky pie! This process is the so called family-based preference. It is important, that the applicant is a Legal Permanent Resident or even US citizen, in order to apply for a Green Card for spouses, children and even siblings or parents at a later date. We summarized some important facts about this topic in the section Apply for a Green Card.
- If one member of the family wins, however, not all qualified family members are required to apply for a Green Card.

Maximum limit of Green Cards per country
The idea behind the Green Card Lottery Program is to give people, who would normally not have the chance, the possibility to win an immigrant visa and emigrate to the USA. The program is designed to be fair to all nationalities and keep the USA diverse. Therefore, each year a certain number of Green Cards are designated for each continent and participating country.
- The maximum number of Green Cards available for any eligible country is 3,500, which equates to around 7% of all Green Cards.
- Europe and Africa are the two continents with the highest Green Card quotas. Both receive about 20,000 Green Cards each.
The strict allocation of Green Cards for each continent keeps the Green Card Lottery results fair for each continent. In Europe, for example, the chance of winning a Green Card is about 1:35. The more America Fans participate per country, the higher the chances to win a Green Card.
Third-Party Websites and Applications
The Department uses various types of online surveys to collect opinions and feedback from a random sample of visitors. Primarily, state.gov uses the ForeSee Results’ American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) online survey on an ongoing basis to obtain feedback and data on visitors’ satisfaction with the state.gov website. This survey does not collect PII. Although the survey invitation pops up for a random sample of visitors, it is optional. If you decline the survey, you will still have access to the identical information and resources at the state.gov site as those who do take the survey. The survey reports are available only to state.gov managers and other designated staff who require this information to perform their duties. The Department may use other limited-time surveys for specific purposes, which are explained at the time they are posted.
The Department retains the data from the ACSI survey results as long as needed to support the mission of the state.gov website.
Green Card distribution based on experience
It is more likely that the winners from European countries will meet the necessary requirements to proceed with the Green Card application process. This means that almost 20% fewer winners are notified in Europe than in Africa. Worldwide, about 100,000 winners are selected, of these 100,000, the US authorities expect about 50,000 qualified applicants.
In short, more winners are notified each year so that the US authorities can actually issue the 50,000 Green Cards available. The US government calculates those numbers based on decades of experience. From previous statistics, they can calculate how many “additional” people need to be notified to ensure that everyone has a fair chance of winning. This way, qualified winners who want a Green Card will not be left out.
Furthermore, the calculations also take application mistakes into consideration. Even simple mistakes can lead to a winner being disqualified, especially if you apply for the lottery on your own. The American Dream has more than 20 years of experience and is happy to help you on your way to a Green Card — from applying for the lottery to having an immigrant visa in your pocket.

Why is there a Green Card Lottery?
The principle behind the lottery is to give a wide variety of people a chance to win a US immigrant visa. Those who win in the lottery have the chance to get a Green Card. The Green Card Lottery was brought to life with the Immigration Act of 1990 with the purpose of giving people from countries with low immigration rates the chance to move to the USA. The USA is a country made up of people from different countries and the wish is to keep America diverse through immigration. It is no wonder that America is famously known as the great melting pot: Immigrants from around the world have played a significant role in shaping American culture with their own traditions and customs. Thanks to the unique lottery under the Green Card Program, every person has a chance to get closer to emigrating to the USA.
Winner distribution with Africa as an example
Why do the Green Card statistics then show that the distribution of winners among countries is not equal? Some countries, especially in Africa, have a much higher number of winners than the maximum of 3,500.
This is simply because Green Card Lottery winners are randomly selected. Within Africa, most of the applicants come from Ethiopia, Ghana, Egypt, Cameroon and the Congo. If, for example, 10% of the participants in Africa are from Ethiopia, then 10% of the winners within Africa will be statistically from Ethiopia.
It is therefore possible that Ethiopia suddenly has five times as many Green Card winners as Germany, for example. The likelihood, however, that every winner in Ethiopia will continue with the Green Card application or fulfill the requirements is extremely low.
The reason behind this is as follows:
- Not every winner continues with the Green Card application process.
- This may be the case for winners who do not wish to carry on with the Green Card application process or may not meet the requirements necessary to get a Green Card. This is the case in many African countries.
- Often winners do not have the necessary education or work experience to fulfill the requirements.
- Moreover, it is difficult for many African winners to prove that they have sufficient financial resources to make a fresh start in the USA.
