Green Card

2,777 Kenyans have won the 2021  Diversity Visa (green card) lottery. The lottery ran between October 2nd, 2019 and November 6th, 2019. According to the US State Department, Kenya is  among 53 African countries whose nationals were lucky to win.

Six regions in the world, millions of applicants and thousands of lucky Green Card winners: Every year the US authorities release detailed statistics about the distribution of Green Cards to worldwide DV-Lottery winners. You will quickly notice that some countries have more winners than others. Why is the distribution of Green Card winners so different worldwide? Continue reading for an explanation of the worldwide winner statistics.

People born in the following countries were not allowed to participate in the DV-2021 Lottery: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, China (mainland), Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except for Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories and Vietnam. Read more about the Green Card Lottery requirements.

Your chances of winning the Green Card Lottery

Generally speaking, your chances of winning are very good. However, every year almost 40% of all participants are disqualified due to formal errors. This could be a photo that doesn’t meet the requirements or a wrong family status. These are only two of the many little things people can do wrong during the application process, which can result in an immediate disqualification.

The frustrating thing is: The US authorities do not tell applicants whether they have done something wrong. That means very often people enter the Green Card Lottery year after year and make exactly the same mistakes again without even knowing it. No surprise they never win.

How can I increase my chances of winning?

Luckily, The American Dream is here to help you. With our professional advice and preparation of your application, we can guarantee that you will not be disqualified due to formal errors. We will help you make the most of your lottery participation and thus increase your chances of winning.

Why should I trust The American Dream?

The American Dream is one of the largest Green Card Lottery agencies worldwide. Based in Germany, our company has helped thousands upon thousands of USA fans around the world realize their dreams and immigrate to the USA.

In Germany alone, about 50% of all Green Card Lottery winners have participated with our help every year. That means we provide half of all winners in this country! An overwhelming number, isn’t it?

But we do not only help participants from Germany. Every year we help people from all over the world to realize their dream of immigrating to the USA. If you want to maximize your chances of winning as well, participate today!

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.

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.

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.

What are you waiting for? Fulfill your very own American dream and take part in the Green Card Lottery now!

HOPE: 36 year old man who scored D+ in Kenya now has 5 degrees from US universities!

Published

on

BY BMJ MURIITHI

They say when one door is shut somewhere, a window – or even another door – is open someplace else. The story of US-based Mwangi Mukami reads like fiction.

In his own words, the Kenya education system wrote him off when he got a D+ in his high school exams (KCSE). However, upon landing in the US (where, by and large, people are judged by the content of their character without laying too much emphasis on past failures or mistakes), he embarked on a journey to fulfil his educational dreams.

He went back to school and, as we speak, he has just received his fifth degree at the age of 36. Many Kenyans in US can can relate to Mukami’s story. It resonates because many of them – or their friends and family members – had lost hope in Kenya but the United States offered them a second chance. Now they have their well earned degrees which they would otherwise have only dreamt of. We must add a rider here that although there is no doubt that  opportunities abound in the US, you still have to work very hard to earn those degrees.

Here is Mr Mwangi Mukami  in his own words:

BY MWANGI MUKAMI
I have just received my graduate diploma from UC Berkeley. 20+ years ago, Kenya’s education system wrote me off as a failure because I had a D+.
I remember vividly saying to my peers that I wanted to be a policymaker or an attorney. Their response was a burst of collective laughter and sneer. But here I am—five degrees at 36. I hope God grants me a long life, success, and wealth to open doors of opportunities for more D+ students.
For the misfits, the rejected, and the oppressed. Congratulations to my mom. The degree is a reflection of her tenacity. I am grateful and honored to have wonderful brothers and sisters who support and trust my ability to achieve: Elizabeth Mwariri Keyym Peters, Lissa Irvenne Kayte Khulgal Jeph Collins.

I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement of Kay Ventura, Carol McCrary, and Betty Mc Crary Alarms, And I can’t forget Elizabeth Woods for the many nights she drove to take me to school.

Jim Foti for the countless recommendation letters Joe Beasley for initial grant to attend a community college.

I am because of all these people and I couldn’t be so grateful and honored to have them in my life. For Nick, the next step is a JD.
