Due to a technical issue, the Diversity Visa (DV) 2019 entry period that began on October 3rd has been closed. Entries submitted from October 3-10, 2017 are not valid and have been excluded from the system; they will not count as a duplicate entry.
The technical issue has been resolved and a new full entry period began on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 and will run until noon (EST) on Wednesday, November 22, 2017.
Only entries submitted during this period will be accepted and considered for selection in the lottery. Discard any confirmation number or other documentation you received for entries submitted from October 3-10, 2017. Please note entries will not be accepted through the U.S. Postal Service.
