Winning a Green Card: Who else gets lucky?


As the saying goes, happiness is the only thing that doubles if shared! And the same goes for luck in the Green Card Lottery! Those who win have already managed the first big step in making the USA their new home!  Who actually profits when a Green Card is won? We have summarized the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions our Green Card experts are frequently asked: 

You would like to move to the USA with your whole family?

Those who win the Green Card can share their luck with others! Your children would like to work or study in the USA? Winning a Green Card makes it easy: when you win, your children win too!

  • All unmarried children under the age of 21 will benefit from your Green Card-luck!
  • Accordingly, all your children under 21, biological or adopted, as well as those of your spouse must be listed in your Green Card Lottery application because they also have a right to receive a Green Card. 

Use the benefits of a green card for the whole family and your new life in America can start straightaway.

Luck doubles if you share it, right?

It sure does, so don’t miss your chance and register your spouse for the lottery at the same time. The best part is: If your spouse wins the Green Card, then the other automatically wins as well. Were you not married when your application was submitted, that is, you got married after your application was sent? That is also not a problem. As long as you marry before the consulate appointment or directly after receiving your winner’s notification, your better half can still come with you. Let the American adventure begin.

Can children over the age of 21, siblings or parents also apply for a Green Card?

Even unmarried children over the age of 21  can get a slice of your Green Card lucky pie! This process is the so called family-based preference. It is important, that the applicant is a Legal Permanent Resident or even U.S. citizen, in order to apply for a Green Card for spouses, children and even siblings at a later date.
