Who is eligible to enter the Green Card Lottery?

You or your spouse must be a native of a country that is eligible to participate in the Diversity Visa Lottery. If you are born in a country that is not eligible, but both your parents or your spouse was born in an eligible country, you do qualify.

The U.S. State Department publishes the list of countries that are eligible to participate before each year's lottery. You must have a high school diploma or equivalent, defined in the United States as successful completion of a 12-year course of elementary and secondary education, OR you must have two years of work experience within the last five years in an occupation that requires at least two years of training or experience to perform.
