Hopefully someone will know the answer to this.

Is someone who is a permanent resident of a visa waiver country (Germany) but a
citizen of a non waiver country (Ukraine) allowed to visit the U.S. through the
waiver program? If not, is it easier for them to get a visitor visa now that they are
living in the visa waiver country than if not. She is a young, single female, just
trying to figure out what we may be up against. She will have family still in Germany
(aging parents). Thanks.

Simply being a permanent resident of a visa waiver country does not make you eligible
to use the US visa waiver. You must be a citizen of such a country.

You are not eligible for the visa waiver. But my guess is that your chances of
getting a tourist visa for the US are indeed significantly better than if you were
living in the Ukraine. That is because the reason for the denial rate there is that
the US assumes that many people in the Ukraine want to escape the post-Soviet slump
and would stay in the US illegally. Since you live in Germany, that may not be an
issue for you.

Ingo, just as a point to note, most Ukrainians that I've met, prefer that their
country be referred to as Ukraine, instead of the more utilized label of "the
Ukraine", especially since the break-up of the USSR.

Thanks for the attempt to correct me, although I don't see any difference between
your spelling and mine. Or did I miss something?
