us lottery for dual citizens

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am a Turkish-German citizen who wants to apply for the US lottery (born in Turkey). I know that I have much more chance if I applied as a German, but not sure how to do that?

Should I choose Germany in the section "Country of Eligibility for the DV Program"?


In addition, I heard that people can apply twice, once I would be the main applicant and my wife the co-applicant and once she would be the main and I the co-applicant. Am I right?

Please READ THE RULES. You run the risk of disqualifying yourself. Except in very narrow circumstances you enter using the country you were born. Citizenship is meaningless and the rules are clear on this. They are also clear about the spouse entries (short answer for you, yes).
