Dear Daniel Tella ,
Thank you for your email inquiry concerning the Diversity Visa Lottery Program. We confirm again that you are a winner of the Diversity Visa Lottery(also known as Green Card). The congressionally mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is administered on an annual basis by the Department of State and conducted under the terms of Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Section 131 of the Immigration Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-649) amended INA 203 and provides for a class of immigrants known as .diversity immigrants.. Section 203(c) of the INA provides a maximum of 55,000 Diversity Visas (DV) each fiscal year to be made available to persons from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.
In order to process your visa you must pay the fees connected with immigration to the U.S.
