As I mentioned in my earlier post, the DV-2018 program is scheduled to start allowing entries on October 4. The entry period will close on November 7th. The official instructions have now been released – so get ready at  the official site:-


There is a link to a video guide in that link. The video guide is as good as anything else available – so please watch that!


There is no need to rush your entry on day 1 of the entry period – the winners are chosen at random from the entire entry period – there is no “best time to submit”.

My most important piece of advice is this.

Read the instructions carefully, and BE HONEST and ACCURATE in your answers.
