Winner’s Reunion in New York 2014


Gewinnertreffen Gruppe

Recently The American Dream invited the Green Card winners from the past years to a reunion in New York. Despite heavy rain quite a few Green Card winners found each other and got together to exchange experiences about their emigration. 

The American Dream invited the participants to a two and a half hour long boat cruise around Manhattan Island. There was even a participant from another state.

In the early afternoon the participants arrived at Pier 83 and then they boarded the Circle Line boat. During the cruise the lucky Green Card winners not only got to talk about their individual U.S. emigration experiences, but at the same time got to see the seven biggest bridges in New York, got to know five different districts and got information about 25 world-famous sights.

How things stand in March 2014



Winners of the Green Card Lottery DV-2014 have been and are currently being invited to their interview appointments at the U.S. consulate. In March this concerns the case numbers up to 30,700 for those who were born in Europe, who have submitted complete documents to the Kentucky Consular Center and who fulfill the requirements.

That means that the aforementioned winners with numbers up to 30,700 will be informed by e-mail about interview appointments taking place in May.

As we know from well-informed sources the first winners have their first entry to the U.S. behind them and some have already even become friends with their new neighbors in America.

Green Card Lottery participants of the DV-2015 still have to be patient for two more months. Only then the winners will be drawn and it will be known who is amongst the lucky winners and who will get to be a big step closer to fulfilling the American Dream.

Please make sure we have your correct contact data so we can inform you about the results. You can check or change your address by logging on with your customer number on www.green-card.com/login

The current legislative proposal in the U.S. senate S. 744 (Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act) could possibly put an end to the Green Card program once and for all next year!

Start your US-Adventure NOW!


Dear customers, dear interested parties,

Now in October we are in the final phase of the Green Card Lottery DV-15. Please note that for the time being we will only be accepting applications until October 15th.  This ensures that even in the “hot phase” we always have enough time to offer you our personal and intense service in the same high quality.

Please keep in mind: You can only win if you participate. Start your US-Adventure NOW! 

The Green Card Lottery is not affected by the U.S. shutdown, but nowadays this topic is often exaggerated in the representation of the media. In the history of the USA this temporary shutdown has happened 17 times already, so it seems to be a part of the political games of the democratic system in the USA. All important government employees will still be paid; far more than half of the state employees are operating normally and performing their duties. But we are keeping our fingers crossed that a political solution can be achieved soon.

Green Card Lottery results & statistics DV-2014


Finally the new winner statistics and results of the Green Card Lottery DV-2014 have been published by the U.S. authorities. 

A complete overview of the statistics of the winners of this year’s lottery of all the different countries can be found on our website.

More than 17.000 participants have won a Green Card in the last 16 years with our help. The chances to win one of the 55.000 Green Cards are fairly high. Married couples can even double their chances if they each apply for the Green Card. In case of win the other automatically gets a Green Card. Statistically your chances of winning a Green Card are better than having three matching numbers in the lottery.

So what are you waiting for?





Good news for all winners of the DV-2013 Lottery!


By now almost all interviews of the Green Card winners have been completed. The status of the U.S.-consulate for August is “current”. This year again, we, from The American Dream, have a success rate of almost 100% of Green Cards that have been issued. We are proud of all the work we have done for our Premium winners.

We would like to take the chance to wish all winners of the DV-13 Lottery lots of success on their further way to the USA and say thank you for the excellent cooperation. If you need our counseling at some point in the future, we will be happy to help you and we are looking forward to  any feedback from you from the USA!

If there are any winners of the DV-2013 Lottery, that haven’t sent their documents to the KCC yet or haven’t received an interview appointment, it is time to act now! The Green Cards of DV-13 can only be issued until the end of September. After that the fiscal year 2014 starts, and starting October the first Green Card winners of DV-14 will receive their interview appointments at the U.S.-consulate.

Enjoy the summer – we wish you a great and pleasant summer!

Last round of possible appointments for GreenCard Lottery Winners of the DV-2012


The majority of our GreenCard winners from the DV-12 have had their interview appointment at the U.S. Consulate already or it is imminent. Now in September the last round of appointments for the winners of the DV-12 are taking place. If you are a winner of the DV-2012 your interview appointment should take place in the U.S. fiscal year 2012, which began in October 2011 and ends in September 2012, so pretty soon!

The entitlement for the application and claim of the immigrant visa in case of win in the diversity-visa-lottery only applies for the U.S. fiscal year for which the GreenCard winner was selected. Thus the claim ends after September 30th for all successful participants of the DV-2012. After this date no GreenCards can be issued anymore for DV-2012 GreenCard winners. The same goes for accompanying spouses or children. The U.S. authorities state the following: “If you fail to obtain a DV-2012 visa by September 30, 2012, your registration will expire. DV-2012 visas cannot, by law, be issued after September 30, 2012“.

If you have submitted your application to the U.S. and still have not received an interview appointment until now you should not lose sight of the previously mentioned deadline and if necessary get in touch with the U.S. authorities again. If you have been selected for the Diversity Immigrant Program 2012, but do not receive your visa until September 30th 2012, this means that your application has not been followed up on. Hence, unfortunately your GreenCard win would expire.

The U.S. government cannot guarantee that GreenCards are available until the cutoff date (09-30-2012). Participants of the GreenCard lottery that have been selected thus do not automatically receive a GreenCard. Under certain circumstances visa numbers can be used up before September 30th 2012, because there are always more winners selected than the 55.000 visa that are drawn and given out per year.

But don’t worry! In the last 15 years all of our customers that were qualified and reported back also received their GreenCard in the end.

As of October 1st the interview appointment round for the winners of the DV-13 will begin and we will keep you up to date about that too.

Premium winner service pays off in case of win


Beginning of May of this year it was that time again and the winners of the green card lottery were selected and notified. However, since the actual application of the green card really only starts with the winning notification, we offer our customers a premium winner service next to our regular winner support. This service simplifies the complete process from the receipt of the winning documents to the activation of the green card upon first entry to the U.S. for our customers. Upon request we support you in each step of the application and all bureaucratic hurdles.

In addition to the basic requirements, which every applicant has to fulfill to receive the green card, among other things several forms from the U.S. authorities have to be filled out and a personal interview appointment at the U.S. consulate has to be completed successfully. In addition to our regular winner service (which comprises the winning documents, access to our winner’s forum and comprehensive consultancy) the optional premium service includes preparation of all necessary documents for the Kentucky Consular Center, forwarding of all documents and usage of our US address for the delivery of the GreenCard or SSC, for example.

We support and guide our premium customers most intensively and the success rate speaks for itself. In the past year 99% of our premium customers have successfully received their green card. Therefore we were effectively able to assist almost all our customers in the preparation of the winning documents for the U.S. authorities. The individual preparation for the interview appointment has definitely been worthwhile for our customers. And upon receipt of the green card the premium winner service has always paid off.

The entire team of The American Dream is delighted about every green card customer who reaches the U.S. and thereby fulfills his/her American Dream.

Winner statistics DV-2013


The results of the current winner statistics from the DV-2013 are in:


There are exactly 1.253 winners in the green card lottery from Germany this year! Thereby Germany ranks eighth out of altogether 65 countries in Europe according to the number of winners. In comparison: There are altogether 131 winners from Switzerland and from Austria 108 in total.

These numbers and over 16.000 winners that participated with The American Dream in the past 15 years clearly show that it is still relatively easy to win a green card. It is definitely more likely than winning the lottery jackpot. The quote for Europeans lies at approximately 1:25 (otherwise depending on the region up to 1:60). Spouses can double their chances if they both put in an application. In case of win the other one then automatically gets the green card.

The exact distribution of winners according to countries can be found HERE.

DV-13: Notifications


FYI - to all participants of the green card lottery DV-13 that participated by using the service of The American Dream:

All notifications have been sent out by us, no matter whether you’ve won or not, and should arrive in your mail within the next days. Therefore we ask you for a little more patience, since sending it through the post can sometimes take a bit longer.

If you are amongst the lucky winners, then you should read the winning documents carefully and if need be contact us when you have further questions or want to book the according winner’s service. We want to wish all winners all the best for your further path in the USA and thank you for placing your trust in us!

If you were not fortunate this time, then you should immediately take advantage of our regular customer fee and register for the DV-14 for the discounted price – you will be receiving a personal access code for this.

Reduction of Fees for GreenCard-Winners


The US Department of State has announced that as of April 13th 2012 visa processing fees for immigrant and nonimmigrant visa will be adjusted. While the fees for most of the nonimmigrant visa categories will be increased, the fees for the E-Visa (Treaty Investor and Trader visas) and the K-Visa (Fiancé(e) visas) will be decreased. Applicants for immigrant visas profit in all visa categories, because the all immigrant visa processing fees have been lowered.



For all green card winners that still have their interview appointment ahead of them this means that they will benefit from the new reduction of visa fees, since instead of US$ 440 they will only have to pay US$ 330 per person.


In fact, all immigrant visa processing fees have been reduced, not only for the diversity visa program. There are different reasons for the decrease of fees, one is that the costs connected with immigrant visa have been redistributed, making the lower fees possible.


Most of the nonimmigrant visa processing fees (except for the E and K visas where there was a also a fee reduction) and the border crossing cards have increased for which there are different reasons as well. For example, higher processing and administrative costs (new facilities, additional staffing) and a higher demand for nonimmigrant visas explain the rising prices.


Further information about the new fees can also be found here.


Verification of address data currently available to us


Soon the time will come and waiting will have come to an end: The participants of the GreenCard lottery DV-2013 are waiting eagerly for the publication of this year’s winners. The announcements are to take place between May and June 2012, which means that most of our participants should get mail from us by the End of May. Our participants should log into their personal customer area of our website and check and if necessary change their address data so that we can inform them at once in case of win.

New visa fee for GreenCard winners


US-authorities have lowered the visa fee that has to be paid at the interview appointment from US$ 819 to US$ 440 per person. Whether this is a temporary reduction and whether the fee will be increased again or re-appears in other places, cannot currently be said. However, we assume that the rest of the winners of the DV-2012, who have their interview appointment until the end of September 2012, will benefit from the lower visa fee.



Happy New Year


Once again we would like to wish all of you a happy new year and we hope that all your dreams – especially your personal American Dream – will come true this year.


Soon it is time again to congratulate the winners of the green card lottery dv-13 and we are looking forward to this moment (the winners will be notified between May and July 2012).


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

DV-2013: News from the US government


This week the US government has published the rules for this year´s greencard program (DVLottery), called DV-2013. Poland is among the participating countries again for the first time after 7 years, whereas Bangladesh has been excluded. This is a big disappointment in Bangladesh, which over the past few years was the country with the highest number of participants worldwide. In Europe, a lot of USA fanatics are bound to be happy though. Since the "country" refers to the "country of birth" when it comes to the DVLottery Program, a lot of people of Polish decent are finally allowed to take part again. Even people who have lived, for example, in England, Germany or Canada almost their whole life, had been excluded in recent years if they were born in Poland. This year, the only excluded European country is the UK.


In other news, the final deadline has also been announced and The American Dream has reacted promptly and extended it´s deadline as well to October 25th, 2011. This will give every interested applicant more than a month still to partcipate! We wish everyone good luck!  

DV-2012: Valid new results published


Winners of Dv12After the "programming glitch" which caused the first results of the green card lottery to be nullified in early May, the US government has now begun to publish the new results. The American Dream started downloading the results for all its customers and it looks good so far. More than 300 winners have already been notified and more are to follow in the upcoming days. We expect that we are able to notify all our customers by mail and email by the end of the month. We know that the waiting period has been extremely long this year, but now you will have to wait only a few more days. All the best, we keep our fingers crossed!




Webdesign, aesthetics and a positive influence on the user: all that must be taken into consideration when developing a web site or giving it a new design.


The American Dream keeping these three important factors in mind, developed a new layout and updated the vast and diverse amount of information of our well attended website. 


We improved the menu navigation, making it even easier for the user. The colours received a touch up matching better the new chosen pictures, consequently the topics are better illustrated.

Such an update is not only necessary but most of all it makes sense, because it is our goal to provide a professional and qualified service, at the same time the information search should be pleasant and enjoyable for the user. Not to mention the important marketing role of a well designed and functional website, it gives an enterprise the opportunity to present itself which is also an opportunity to beat the competition.


The American Dream always aiming to keep up the high standards have just launched its new website as usual informative but even more interesting for the eyes of the users.


We hope you will enjoy it!

Delay of DV2012 Lottery Drawing


Delay of DV12 LotteryIt has not been possible to check the GreenCard lottery results of the DV2012 since May 5th, 2011.
This is due to technical reasons on the part of the US Department of State. “We are experiencing technical difficulties at this time“, explains the Department of State.

Unfortunately, as a consequence, the announcement of the winners will be delayed for a few more days. As soon as the State Departmet releases the internet check, we will inform all customers regarding the results of the GreenCard lottery DV2012.

That is why we are asking you to be little more patient.

Ready, set, go! - The new green card lottery DV- 12 is starting soon



green card lottery dv-12
The US Department of State published new information about the upcoming green card lottery DV-2012 just last week.

The timeframe to submit applications will now be shorter than ever before since the lottery turned electronic in 2003: It is open for only 30 days from early October until early November.
The American Dream will accept your application until October 25th, to make sure that we can thoroughly check your application before we submit it.

This year, the chances of winning may be higher than in the last years, because of two reasons:

1) The submission period is a whole month shorter than in the last seven years. This will likely result in a smaller number of participants, as the majority of people usually applied in November, which will be too late this year.

2) The US government itself will not send out winner´s notifications by postal mail anymore. We at The American Dream will still send you the result by postal mail, but all other participants who take part at their own risk will now need to hold on to a confirmation code which is displayed only online, and which will never be e-mailed or given out on request by the US government. If you lose this code during the 7-month period between the application and the results, it means you cannot win!

To avoid missing your winning notificiation and to benefit from a large array of other services, you should consider taking part through a reputable, government-licensed green card lottery provider like The American Dream. We will check and submit your application, send you the confirmation code, notify you by postal mail AND help you for FREE through all bureaucratic procedures once you are a winner!

We will be offering a special reduced price to all of our customers until September 30th 2010!!

From now on everybody should prepare all necessary documents which are required for the interview appointment, such as the police report (not older than 3 months at the day of your interview), proof of work experience/education and financial proofs.
All other documents needed, can be looked up in your winner documents on page 8.

To exchange your experiences and advises you are welcome to log-in to our exclusive bulletin board. Here you will be informed about personal narrations - positive and negative ones- and tips on how to act during your interview in the US-embassy.

We keep our fingers crossed for all of our winners.

1,316 new green card winners via The American Dream


Gewinner The American Dream In the beginning of June the statistical breakdown of the DV-11 lottery has been published.  But since the last two weeks our final winners, participating through The American Dream, have been informed by us.

We are proud to announce that 1,316 lucky winners of The American Dream will be able to live the "American Way of Life" pretty soon and have the right to apply for American citizenship after five years of living in the USA!

All of our customers who weren't among the lucky winners have been offered an especially reduced service fee in order to apply again for the next lottery DV-12. Many of our winners already sent their documents to the Kentucky Consular Centre and are now communicating about their immigration in our Bulletin Board for winners.

A lot of them are also posting on our Facebook website  or  are blogging about their new upcoming adventure.

We are always glad to guide our winners on their way to The USA.
And we are crossing our fingers for all our loyal customers and hope wholeheartedly that they will "Be a winner next year!"

The statistical breakdown of the DV Lottery 2011 has been published


The USCIS released the official numbers of winners per country of the DV-11 Lottery last Tuesday.
During the last weeks we have been able to congratulate more than 1,000 fortunate winners by mail, email or phone.
They have been sent our comprehensive and detailed winner brochure.

We are still receiving dozens of new winner notifications by the US State Department every day. But even though the statistical breakdown has been published already, there are still thousands of winner notifications on their way by mail. On inquiry we have been told by the responsible authority that it will take up to 2 weeks until all letters will be sent out. All winners will be notified the same day their notification arrives. As promised every The American Dream participant will be informed about their personal result by mail until the beginning of July 2010.

For those who won't be among the lucky winners, we will have a great special offer with a reduced price for the DV-2012 Lottery application. Until then there is no reason to abandon hope. We keep our fingers crossed for you and hope that we will be able to congratulate as many green card winners as possible.

You can find the statistic mentioned above for all countries on our website.

Good luck!


More Green Card Winners DV-2011 announced


Until today, we have sent the Green Card winning notification to more than 700 of our DV-2011 customers! For the first time this year, these winners are able to use our newly implemented Facebook page to post their stories. Quite a few green card winners have done that already. More than 400 of the selected winners have also already registered in our exclusive forum which is open only for our winners. There they can exchange ideas and get help from other The American Dream winners and from our own team.

However, the notification period continues. We get more and more letters every week from the Kentucky Consular Center which selects the green card winners. All winners will immediately receive an email and/or phone call from us and will be forwarded the official documents along with an explicit manual on how to proceed to get the green card, for example how to fill in the additional forms and how to prepare for the interview at the US embassy to receive the immigration visa.

Around the beginning of July the official results for all dvlottery participants will be released by the State Department and all our customers will receive a written notice by postal mail.

Until then we wish all of our customers Good Luck!

GreenCard Winner's Meeting Hollywood


As some of you already know, the green card winners of The American Dream are organizing a winners meeting in the US every year. This is a great experience for all participants. They have the chance to exchange their thoughts and ideas with other green card winners, find new friends and talk about the good old times back home.

For this year's meeting, the green card winners chose the great destination Hollywood. Unfortunately, The American Dream could not be there but we designed a nice T-Shirt for the winners and sent them to the US - as a surprise.

We are very happy to guide our winners through the whole green card process and to see, that new friendships are built.

For more information you can have a look at our internet webpage and at the online block "The American Adventure".

150 green card winners DV-2011


On April 26th, 2010, we received the first winning notification of one of our customers. It was the same procedure like in the last years: we first received the winning letters for our African winners. This week we have finally received the first European winning notifications and we are very happy to already announce more than 150 winners among our customers. Those green card winners of the DV-2011 (application was made in 2009) were informed immediately via e-mail or telephone and are now waiting to receive the original documents by registered mail.

This year, our service is even more appreciated: For the first time, the US authorities are sending out DIN A5 envelopes to the green card winners which only contain two papers. All other documents have to be filled out online.

As a special service, The American Dream is sending out a detailed winner's brochure (about 30 pages) with all important information about the further green card process, tips on how the documents have to be filled out and the original printed forms.

What is the next step? Step by step we will inform more and more green card winners. But it will take some time until all green card winners will be notified and we expect to receive the last winning notifications from the US authorities by the end of July 2010.

Our fingers are crossed for all of you.
