Green Card Lottery DV-2011 Results

Below is the data sheet for DV-2011, including total number of applicants by country, total number of lottery winners by country, and chances of winning. As discussed in the green card lottery overview, winning the lottery doesn't guarantee a green card. Instead, one still has to meet all eligibility requirements for an immigrant visa or adjustment of status, and must complete the application process by the end of a fiscal year. In addition, the Department of State has selected more entries than DV visas available, anticipating that some of the first 50,000 applicants selected may be ineligible or choose not to proceed with a visa application.

Natives of the following countries were not eligible to participate in DV-2011:  Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born, excluding Hong Kong S.A.R. and Taiwan), Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam.
