  • DV-Diversity Visa

    Does government give the Diversity visa lottery winners compensations when approved?. How about medical insurance? Thanks.
    I was told that they give monthly compensations for the first year but is it per person or per family? Thanks.

          Yes....the compensation is that you have the opportunity to apply for and possibly receive a green card. I should think that should be compensation enough......I swear the gimme gimme mentality that exists in society today is going to make me cuckoo!

            No.

            Only refugees/asylees are eligible for some kind of Federal/State Assistance.
            DV winners are NOT.
            But they may qualify for Fed Aid to attend college/school to improve their skills and get a better job, which is ALL you need to stand firm on your feet in America.

            For "free ride" one goes to Canada.

            Good luck

              Canada is not "free ride" in every situation...

              BronzeLady,
              It seems to be getting worse with time, the younger a person is the less work ethic, etc. that I see. I realize that that does not apply to EVERY person but many that I have encountered. "What does the world owe ME??" When I look back at people that I have known, just at my own family members, the difference in attitude, work ethic, etc. is tremendous.

                Personally, I think the Diversity Visa should be scrapped (inspite of the fact that my children have entered on the "off-chance" for the past 7 years). I don't see the point in having an annual "lottery" which must create a huge amount of work for the USCIS, who can't even begin to cope with their normal workload. Why not use those visa's for the thousands of people with approved or pending family and employment applications who have been waiting for years - and growing old and disillusioned in the process. If there is a need for "diversity", then allocate the visa's to those who are waiting from the approved diversity countries.

                The ones who benefit most from the "Green Card Lottery", are the lawyers who exploit the would be winners, who pay outrageous fees for lawyers to prepare simple applications that most people could do themselves. It is common to see lawyers advertising these "services" internationally.

                  The reason for my question was that I met someone whom came to the US via the DV ticket and he claimed that the government pays him a check for one year along with assistance with the health insurance for the first year. Just wanted to confirm his claim. That's all.
                  Thanks for the comments.

                    Still Learning,

                    I don't know where it started but I swear if my son (who is all of 6 months old!) tries that stuff with me I may have to kill him.

                      Believe it or not, I have seen three families who came winning the DV lottery, are working without paying tax (for over 40 hours' work) and are also getting 'food stamp'. Isn't that a compensation?

                      In the beginning, they asked me similar question if they could get any compensation. I said 'no'. Now, they proved me 'wrong'.

                      Goodluck to those who can suck America as America rewards such people. At least I don't want to do that to live.
