    There are few ways to achieve that but for that specific function, I would recommend using the following widget. 


    This widget shows all the country on a dropdown field. When you select a country, all its states will appear, then states to cities.


    This widget http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autocompleted_address is also a good alternative.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you for the update. As you indicated, Dynamic Dropdowns widget enable you to create dependent fields. If you select a certain value in the first dropdown, the second will be automatically updated with other values depending on the selection of the first.

    If you have any other question or issue, please let us know. We will be glad to assist as best we can.
