Family C.,Green Card Winners DV-2012 from Metzingen, Germany
Played for the first time and instantly won! We could hardly believe it and still it's true. With this picture we would like to give a big thank you to "The American Dream" Team, who helped us with everything with competence and stood by our side with professionalism. Also, the experiences, tips and pointers in the winner's forum were very helpful! With these words we want to encourage you all, you just have to firmly believe in it!
Ms. M.R., GreenCard winner from Olbersdorf (Germany)
A huge thank-you to The American Dream. I had participated only once and I won right away!
Due to your great support, I’m holding the green card in my hand. I’m already excited for my live in the USA. I will be an official inhabitant of California beginning in 2012.
Josef H., GreenCard winner from Rosenheim (Germany)
Yippeee, only 5 weeks after my return from my first entry to the US, I was sent the eagerly awaited green card by TAD. After almost 10 years of unsuccessful participation in the DV-lottery through TAD, I was finally lucky :) My long-cherished dream of living the American dream will come true, at last.
During my first stay, I had literally stepped on the gas and I returned with a brand-new driver licence :) I will combine business and pleasure and work as a truck driver for cash to have a look at the States for a few years before I decide to finally settle down.
Thank you so much, TAD, for the impeccable processing!
Anna N. GreenCard Winner from Duesseldorf
Dear American Dream Team,
After a couple of years of luckless participation, I did receive an Email from you with the notification of winning. First thought: Spam!??!? Then quickly followed the interview appointment at the Consulate in March and the GreenCard activation trip in August.
Now I am a GreenCard holder and soon I will be crossing the “big pond”! Thank you for your support on the first clumsy steps to get there.
Natascha F., Green-Card Winner, Fuerth (Germany)
Dear American Dream Team, ever since I was able to think I have wanted to immigrate to the USA. Thanks to you now this life-long dream is coming true. For that and for all your friendly and competent support I thank you with all my heart!!! God bless you
Nobert G., GreenCard Winner, Hannover
Many thanks to The American Dream Team for the great support to the lottery winners. After several years of attempt now it has finally worked it out. The GreenCard offers me both professionally and privately many new options.
Thank you for everything.
Monique L. Green-Card winner from Dueren (Germany)
The USA means the following to me:
Fantastic, diverse, breathtaking scenery and nature; magnificent, fascinating cities with unlimited entertainment and cultural possibilities; cosmopolitan, tolerant, multicultural people, who are full of the joys of life; cool cars.
Without the winning notification from TAD by mail I would not be in San Francisco now…
Thanks so much dear American Dream Team for the wonderful support!
Jan P., Frankfurt, Germany
I played the lottery for the first time and I won right away! Thank you THE AMERICAN DREAM. You made our dream come true.
Stefan Z., GreenCard winner from Fuerstenwalde (Germany)
Thank you for the great support. From the day we won the GreenCard to holding the long-awaited GreenCard in my hand you have helped us with advice. We can finally make our dreams come true and disappear in the USA. At the end of the year we will have our big day…off to Tampa/Florida. We would not have managed that without you.
Best wishes and many thanks!!!!!
Family D., GreenCard winners from Loerrach (Germany)
After participating in the lottery for 12 years, we were informed about winning in May, 2010. At that time, we were just moving from New Zeeland to Australia. We faced a problem when filling in the forms which was caused by the time in NZ and which put the receipt of the green card at risk.
Yet, through the great support and good connections of The American Dream, we had been able to send the forms to Kentucky in July. We went from there in short steps and received the invitation to Frankfurt, saw the doctors, had the interview in the beginning of December, activated the card between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in Washington D.C. and were sent the green card at the end of January. We will be moving to Colorado in the middle of March, 2011 and would like to let The American Dream know, how thankful we are for their work and help.
Philipp D., GreenCard Winner from Vienna, Austria
thank you so so much for the outstanding service and your support on the way to getting the Green Card! The participation and the process after the winning notification couldn't have gone any better!
As a proud Green Card holder now nothing else is standing in the way of departing to the "New World"!
I have already recommended to you to many friends of mine and will keep on doing so. All the best!
Christian S., GreenCard Winner from Aachen, Germany
The warmest thanks to the Team from THE AMERICAN DREAM!
Right with the first participation the green card win worked out for me. With the help of competent advice, the forum and the extensive winning documents, the rest was a piece of cake. I am so excited about my very own personal American Dream!
Sybille G., green card winner from Maple Ridge, Canada
First of all I want to express my heartfelt thanks to all the employees at The American Dream, especially to Ina Koehler, for the excellent personal and individual support! To everyone that is trying to get a green card - please don't give up hope - it took us 17 years until we were finally selected! Now we are living in sunny California and are 100% sure that it was worth all the effort! Many thanks for everything. And to all current participants at the lottery we wish the best of luck in the coming drawing.
Jan S., GreenCard Winner, Brensbach (Germany)
I participated in DV-11 and it was my first attempt. I was overjoyed when I received in March 2011 the notification of winning. To be a GreenCard holder was one of my dreams since I was 15 years old.
With the support and the guidance of The American Dream I was able to register myself for the DV-11 and my dream became true. I can only recommend The American Dream, they not only answered all my questions, they also showed me the right way to go.
Thank you so much.
Steven C., GreenCard winner from Glattpark, Switzerland
Thank you so much for great support! My plan is to go to a language school while I am still in Canada and then I will move to Texas and live with my grandparents.
Michael D., GreenCard Winner from Sibnen, Switzerland
Thanks a lot The American Dream for the competent service, moreover a big compliment to co-worker J. Krüger. You were always there for me and my family helping us to find a solution to our problems or concerns.
The way which led me to the GreenCard it is kind of curious, I have to go back in time:
I run away from home when I was 14 years old, I wanted to go to the USA. My dream always was to live in the US, but time passed by… I married, I got two children and 18 years ago I emigrated to Spain. After being through an operation two years ago I was bored and by chance found The American Dream website, I applied for the lottery immediately and look what happened: In May I received the winner’s notification. I was unemployed at the time (things were kind of difficult in Spain) and it was tough for me to finance the whole thing but I managed it and we will fly this year still to the U.S.
Oliver Sch., GreenCard winner from Braunfels (Germany)
Thank you TAD for the good support. I have participated in the lottery for 16 years and now, I have finally won the “GC”. Everything went smoothly. After my activation flight in NY, I am planning on immigrating to the land of opportunity. A dream comes true!
Mr. Matthias E., GreenCard winner from Wipperfuerth (Germany)
Hello TAD Team!
I want to thank you so much for the competent support on my way to the GreenCard!! It would not have been possible without you!
Thomas K., Niederlande
„ Thank you American Dream, I always wanted a GreenCard and thanks to your excellent service and the annual reminder I did not miss a single Lottery, after a few years of participation I have a GreenCard in my hands! Looking forward to moving to New York!!"
Michael G., green card winner from Baden (Austria)
„Already after my second participation in the green card lottery I was able to win a green card. I would like to express my sincere thanks to the American Dream for their excellent support. All the information that I got from them was very helpful and simplified the filling out the forms for the application immensely.”
Birgit K. and Robert F. GreenCard Winners from Garching, Germany
Dear American Dream Team,
We would like to give our warmest thanks for the truly excellent support, also after winning the GreenCard.
The congressionally mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is administered on an annual basis by the Department of State and conducted under the terms of Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Section 131 of the Immigration Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-649) amended INA 203 to provide for a new class of immigrants known as "diversity immigrants" (DV immigrants). The Act makes available 50,000 permanent resident visas annually to persons from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.
From the State Department: "Alien petitioners for the Diversity Visa Program will no longer be permitted to submit a petition by mail. Instead, the Department will require that all petitions be submitted to it in an electronic format, using an Internet website dedicated specifically to the submission and receipt of Diversity Visa."
