The easiest way to migrate to North America is to win the Green Card Lottery. This type of visa received its name almost a century ago, when the act on registration of foreigners was introduced.

After the Second World War, when the influx of migrants into the country increased, those citizens who were able to obtain a residence permit were issued green cards, and the name green card has become established.
