Countries where Green Card Lottery winners have the highest chance
Did you know that about 10 percent of all winners in the Green Card Lottery came from the Democratic Republic of Congo? Since so many people from the Democratic Republic of Congo enter the Green Card Lottery, the actual likelihood of winning a Green Card for those from this country is particularly low.
The situation is similar as well in other African countries such as: Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Kenya when we can see millions of applications entering the Green Card Lottery program annually.
However, those who born in Nauru, Faroe Islands, New Zealand, and Australia have a much higher chance of becoming Green Card Lottery winners. If you were born in Russia, you have 8 percent likelihood.

You can also double your chances of winning the Green Card Lottery if you’re married.
Married couples can double their chance of winning Green Cards
If you are a family or a married couple looking to move to the United States through the Green Card Lottery, you can and should submit two separate applications.
The husband can submit an application that includes his wife and children. Additionally, his wife can and should also submit her own application asking for a Green Card for her family.
Any children included in the application must be under 21 years of age. With two applications in the Green Card Lottery, this family doubles their chances of winning.
If either application wins, they all get to move to the United States.
If you are a family from Russia and submit two applications, you have a 16 percent chance of winning the Green Card Lottery. If you apply two years in a row, you have a one out of three likelihood of moving to the United States.
Moreover, it is always recommended to apply for a multiple year program to give yourself and your family more chances of winning the Green Card Lottery.
So remember to apply twice if you’re a family looking to immigrate to the US!
