U.S. Diversity Visa Lottery 2019 Restarting – All Prior Entries Must Be Resubmitted

October 19, 2017

Due to technical issues, the registration period for DV-2019 is being restarted, and all entries made prior to October 18, 2017 will need to be resubmitted.

We regret this inconvenience but in order to ensure fairness and protect the integrity of the process we must restart the entry process for this year (DV-2019).

The new registration period for DV-2019 opens for electronic entries at noon, Eastern Daylight Time, Wednesday, October 18, 2017, and closes at noon, Eastern Standard Time, Wednesday, November 22, 2017.

If you submitted a DV entry before Wednesday, October 18, 2017, that entry will not be considered, and you will need to submit another entry during the new registration period. You may submit one new entry without being disqualified for submitting multiple entries. Individuals who submit more than one entry during the new registration period will be disqualified.
