Individuals infected with the HIV Virus or active AIDS are now permitted to immigrate to the USA, according to several major news outlets on January 4, 2009.  Look for additional immigration law changes in 2010, because new bills are already in the House of Representatives.

The US Immigration Bureau still maintains a list of non-eligible countries of birth for obtaining a Green Card and has published its lists for 2010 and 2011. The big change in 2011 is that Vietnam has been added to the restricted list. 

In January, sign ups increase for the Green Card Lottery and all slots should be filled by April 2010, a short distance into the future.

 How to Find a Sponsor for Working In America



  1. For what reason Vietnam has been banned???

    • The federal government states that the limit of Vietnamese people – and those from certain other nations – coming to the US has been reached in recent years; other countries will be given a chance to send people, until those limits are reached. A new list of countries is published every year.

  2. For DV-2011, natives of Vietnam were not eligible to apply because it sent a total of more than 50,000 immigrants to the United States in the previous five years. This is a regular procedure for any other country as a measure for giving way to other country natives to enter US.

  3. Can anybody provide the list of eligible countries for the DV Lottery 2013? Also What are the necessary documents for applying a visa, if a person gets selected in the DV lottery?
