EDV (Electronic Diversity Visa) is the cheapest and the best way to enter the US with a green card as one can fly to the United States of America with maximum cost around Nepali Rs 2 to 4 Lakhs after wining the EDV lottery.
EDV lottery for the year 2017 is to be submitted in 2015 for which the result will be out in 2016 and the lucky winners will fly to the US within a year.
