If selected for the Green Card Lottery you will be able to apply for US immigration. As an US lawful permanent resident you will be able to live and work in the US on a permanent basis. Please note that you only have until the end of this month in which to apply. The deadline is 12:00PM EST (GMT -5) on November 30, 2009.
You can check your eligibility for the Green Card Lottery at any time on our site. Do not leave it to the last moment. In the past towards the end of the entry period the USCIS servers have not been able to cope with the level of demand by applicants for the Green Card Lottery. If this happens you will not be able to apply for this year's lottery.
