Listen, today is the first day of applying for the USA Green Card (Diversity) Visa Lottery. It gives you the permission to work in USA starting in 2018 for 2 or 3 years. To apply is free and takes minutes. The photo part of it is a little tricky because it has to be just right, but it isn't a big deal.
It's crazy they still allow this program as America is already plenty diversified. Only those from about 15 countries can't apply, countries from where we have many people already: China, Mexico, Philippines, etc.
I can't think of any country in the world that allows anything as generous as this, the chance to work for free for so long, anywhere, at any job.
And for those of you concerned about a President Trump, Hawaii feels very far away or you can work at national parks in Alaska, sell burritos in Maine, be a divemaster in Florida...you get the picture.
You have nothing to lose! Don't wait; It's better to apply early than late.https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/
