The Diversity Immigrant Visa program, also known as the green card lottery, is a United States government lottery program for receiving a United States Permanent Resident Card. The Immigration Act of 1990 established the current and permanent Diversity Visa (DV) program.
The lottery is administered by the Department of State and conducted under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). It makes available 55,000 immigrant visas annually and aims to diversify the immigrant population in the United States, by selecting applicants from countries with low numbers of immigrants in the previous five years. Around 13 million people applied for the lottery in 2020.
“DV” stands for “Diversity Visa.” By diversity it means deliberately inviting immigration by individuals who are intelligent, ambitious, have no relationships with anyone who can petition for them but might want to immigrate to the US, and are from countries with historic low numbers of US immigrants.
So the answer to your ‘why’is ‘diversity.’
