I'm curious about how "Native" status is determined for the purposes of the US DV. Assume the person in question was born in Kuwait, but has Pakistani citizenship / passport, and has been working for the last 15 years Kuwait (never changing to Kuwaiti citizenship).
The DV lottery seems to focus on "Native" status. Since 2002, natives of Pakistan are forbidden from receiving visas through the US Diversity Immigration Lottery [ref wikipedia]. Will birth location (and not the country of their passport) allow someone in this situation to apply for the DV lottery?
