DV-2017 dates revealed
In true bumbling form, Department of State has managed to trip over their own shoelaces again in announcing the DV lottery DV2017 and they have revealed the DV-2017 dates by mistake.
The DV-2017 dates have not been officially announced (it should come from DoS), but the Egyptian US embassy has put the announcement up early. This makes me chuckle.
So – the dates (when they are officially announced will be:-
Online registration for the DV 2017 Program will begin on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 12:00 noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) (GMT-4), and conclude on TUESDAY, November 3, 2015 at 12:00 noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EST) (GMT-5).
Thank you Cairo embassy!
Don’t rush to enter, I will publish a video on how to complete the eDV – but that won’t be available until after entry has opened (as I want to capture the latest entry form). So – tell your friends to wait for that and you can enter on from the Friday. The date of entry has NO impact on chances of winning…

No you cannot add your sister to your form and cannot take her if you win.

Hi Brit, I am a winner of the 2016 DV lottery and I was interviewed last Tuesday. The officer congratulate me for passing the interview and gives me the yellow paper to pay 165$ before I travel to the USA, but when I check the My Visa Application Status it says ” Administrative Processing” . What dose it mean and what should I do? Please help me.
