The Diversity Visa has been a valued pathway to U.S. citizenship. Though 55,000 winners were selected to receive Green Cards in 2020, their claims to immigration remain uncertain. Due to multiple factors, the lottery winners’ efforts could go unrewarded.

Due to multiple reasons, the Diversity Immigration Visa winners of 2020 may not be granted immigration rights to the U.S.. As winners await the decision, only two days are left until the deadline, and at the time of writing, no conclusion has been published.
