  • I've always been a USA lover. When I signed up for the Green Card Lottery, I had just returned from a Florida vacation. I applied with The American Dream out of joy and excitement. Later, I received the winning notification and didn't believe it at first. I called The American Dream, and the team told me, "Yes, you won!" That was amazing! My advice to anyone who wants to go to the USA: Don't give up!

    Noel Karrasch - Green Card winner from Halle/Saale
  • I didn't even know that my husband Sascha had played in the Green Card Lottery. For him, it was always clear that we were going to immigrate to the USA. I was self-employed in Germany, we had built a good life for ourselves, and were in the process of moving into a new terraced corner house - in other words, really typical German. I had already packed all my boxes when my husband called me from the commuter train. At first, I thought something bad had happened. But then he said, "We won the Green Card!" My first thought was, "Oh shit! We bought new furniture! My business is going great! I have a great job that I love! What am I going to do in America now?" But we took the chance, and it was a huge adventure!

    Monique Menesi from Munich
  • We always had it in the back of our minds: at some point, we want to go to the United States. Of course, we participated in the Green Card Lottery, but you never know in advance: When will you be lucky? It comes all of a sudden and unexpectedly.
    I opened the email, and it said "Congratulations!" That made me feel funny at first. And then I went crazy with joy! We had good support through The American Dream. That was the main thing for us as self-employed people: you don't have much time to take care of things on the side. It lifted a burden from us.

    Stefan and Stanija Kassek - Green Card winners from Brüggen
  • Dear "The American Dream" team,
    thank you so much for your great support over the years. Now it has finally worked and after my high school year 2000/2001 in New York State and the internship 2009/2010 in Florida, nothing stands in the way of my childhood dream. I can only recommend all participants who have been spared from success so far... Trying it again and again will pay off sometime!

  • We were lucky enough to win the second time we tried! From that moment on The American Dream was very helpful and supportive. Thank you very much for your friendly assistance in the past couple of months, great team! It wouldn’t have been possible without you! In July 2018 we went on our activation trip and next February we are flying over again to turn our American dream into reality.

  • Many thanks for the great support on our way to the Green Card. Now we have finally received the "real" Green Card. As it looks at the moment, our dream of living in the USA will start in Florida. We can absolutely recommend the service of "The American Dream" to everybody who wants to realize his dream of living in the USA. We felt well advised at all times - even after the announcement of the win, "The American Dream" was always available with a contact person to answer any questions. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

    Carsten N. & son Edgar - Waren, Germany
  • I could only believe it myself when I was at the US consulate in Frankfurt, Germany. Now I actually have the proper green card. The support and the thorough preparation from TAD during the whole process were great. Special thanks and to all participants of the on-going lottery: Never give up! I did win after the fourth time.

  • Immigrating to the USA in the middle of the COVID crisis was certainly a very challenging situation. There were additional obstacles that we would not have had to overcome under normal circumstances. But I can only recommend everyone to take it as a challenge. You can immigrate to the US, even during the pandemic. And if you have this dream, do not be discouraged!
