I was born in Albania (but have British Citizenship). If I apply for a Green Card (through the Green Card lottery) and was unsuccessful, would I have issues later if I just wanted to travel to the US as a tourist? Could I be refused entry if they thought I would stay there indefinitely because of the unsuccessful green card visa? I wouldn’t, I’ve got a pretty comfortable life in the UK working as a software dev, but always wanted to work in Silicon Valley.
I visited America once for a few weeks (on an ESTA) and enjoyed it a lot. It would be a shame to not be able to go there as a tourist again.
