Green card questions (related to DV visa)- please help

Recommended Posts

Please help me by answering the below questions, you can provide details as much as possible. Thanks!

(Greencard questions related to the DV visa)

1.       Is Green Card Quota based/issued on the basis of Place of Birth or Citizenship of the person? (Country of Chargeability-US Immigration Concept).

2.       Does Green Card Quota/Application for EB visa holders depend on Place of Birth or Citizenship of the person?

3.       If so for GC for EB visa holders is issued on the basis of Place of Birth is it possible to find out the number of GC’s issued to people born in Saudi Arabia and what are the Different clauses/requirements & also what is the backlog status if any and how long does it take for Saudi applicants to get their GC.

"Eligibility is determined by the applicant's country of birth, with two exceptions: the applicant may claim the spouse's country of birth instead if desired, or a parent's country of birth if neither parent was born in the applicant's country of birth and did not legally reside there when the applicant was born. The applicant's country of residence or nationality is irrelevant to the lottery."

The country of chargeability is always the country of birth.

The monthly Visa Bulletin (use Google to search for it) shows PDs for countries with high numbers of applications (e.g., India, China, Mexico) and for all other countries (Rest of World) with low numbers of applications.
