The United States Departamento of State annually creates and enables tha Diversity Visa Program. By 2025, the US offers 55,000 Diversity Visas, this program began in 1990, always subject to certain rules. Buy you shoud know that this amount is distributed among several countries, including Guatemala, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama, which are part of Central America. Honduras is exclded.

The Visa Lotter as it is known the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is recognized as supporting the countries the have the bes control over migration. This migration tax is modified annually.

What is the evaluation that the United States makes to inlude or exclude countries from the program?

The evaluation is simple, it statistically evaluates the migration index from the previous fiscal year to the year the program opened, which mena that for Guatemala to have been include for the Diversity Visas in 2025, it had to have been based on the reported migrants. During fiscal year 2022.

Each Country cannot correspond to mor than 7 percent of the Visas that are drawn, is approximately 3,450 Visas. In our calculation anlysis, using a uniform distribution, each country would receive approximtely 367 Visas. But of course these are not official data. In 2014 alone, 225 winners of Permanent Residence were reported in Guatemala, which has been the highest.

What is the cost for registration?

There is no costo to register and fill out the form, however digital photographs will necessarily have a cost tha you should consider. If you think you apply for a Diversity Visa considering the second requirement that impies having twelve years of study in an applicable field and two years of experience or 12 years of study to be ale to apply. Well, that is not the case, since the rules are very clear in establishing them as both, undersanding them as one or inclusive and not exclusive. The rules are clear, if you don not meet both requirements, you shoul not submit any application.

How do I know if the career and experience I have count?

In th United States, through the Department of Labor (DOL), they classify trades and professions in zones from 1 to 5 and, in turn, assign them a rank. The fist depending on the field to be performed and the second the level of training or experience that is needed to be able to fulfill the functions in said job.
