When can I move to the United States after winning DV Lottery?
Note that the DV program application is free and will always be free. Beware of fraud.
Winning a DV Lottery by itself does not give you a Green Card. To move to the U.S, you will need to go through an embassy interview and prove that you are not a threat to American society and that you can provide for yourself.
