  1. The most interesting thing about this lottery program is that it is open to everyone. One just needs to fulfill the criteria set by Diversity Immigration Visa Lottery Council. There are two criteria. First, one must be the citizen of the country that appears in the list of qualifying countries for Diversity Immigration Visa Program. If it is not so, one can apply on the basis of his or her parent’s country, provided that should appear in the list of qualifying countries. Even if it does not solve the purpose, country of spouse can be taken into consideration; however, condition remains the same.
