Is there a lottery for immigration to Germany?

A lottery ticket for immigration to Germany just a click away – sounds too good to be true? It is. There is no such thing as a lottery for coming to Germany. Be careful of fake websites and rumours on social media.

There has never been a lottery for coming to Germany. Yet again, there is another dubious website with a fake offer for immigration to Germany making the rounds. It asks the potential candidate to send a message to 30 friends on Whatsapp before registering for a lottery ticket to come to Germany. Obviously, offers on websites like these are fake – there is no lottery for immigration to Germany.

The people behind websites such as these are trying to fool possible migrants. The comments on the website might look real but are just there to convince them that the offer is legitimate. But please know better: just because a website shows the German flag does not mean it’s official website of the German government. And anyway, the German government would not ask you to spam your friends.

Do not fall for the smugglers’ lies! Migration is a life decision – do not take it easily without getting the facts first.
