The entry period for DV-2019 has been announced.
It is October 3rd, 2017 to November 7, 2017. People will be able to check the results on May 1, 2018.
The ONLY place where you should enter is the official website at DVlottery.state.gov.
Official instructions are here
A few points.
- Any DV2018 selectees can enter DV2019 with no problems.
- For goodness sake take a new photo for the entry!
- DO NOT use an agent to fill in your forms. Doing so increases you chance of disqualification and of being scammed by the agent.
- BE 100% HONEST ON THE ENTRY.
- READ the instructions!!!
- Include all derivatives. Not including a spouse or child is 100% CERTAIN disqualification.

Unless married, you cannot include him. He cannot enter as he is Nigerian – UNLESS he is married to you (assuming you are from amn eligible country).
You can apply on your phone.
October 10, 2017 at 05:59
Thank you so much
October 10, 2017 at 12:30
hi, can i do application at a cyber cafe. or will it look like it was done by an agent?
Can you clearly tell who an agent is?
October 10, 2017 at 14:03
You can use a cyber café.
October 10, 2017 at 20:32
Now fill in the form, however, in “Option 6”, point “a” says “in care (optional) this option does not fill it, because below you were asked to enter the address and fill it in. worried if this is a reason NOT to get selected.
I wait for your early reply
October 11, 2017 at 03:32
That won’t affect selection chances.
October 11, 2017 at 12:42
The site is down for maintanance, today 11 October 2017, 3.42 PM GMT +3 East Africa Time

Sir Britsimon I want to ask you can confirmation number peridict to win dvlottery ?
October 12, 2017 at 22:39
October 13, 2017 at 15:01
Brit is it truth that the house had bail a law to cancel the Dv program if so I like to hear, from you because people I factual information about the DV. Was just about to apply when the site was, not going through
October 13, 2017 at 16:13
There is all the info you need here.
Just understand that Trump and the Republicans have sent months in disarray, so seem unable to pass any legislation. This particular bill will be immensely unpopular as currently worded.
October 17, 2017 at 16:10
Hello Brit. I applied for dv-2019 along two family members before the 10th. They both received the email notification about the announcement, but I didn’t receive any email, even though I applied first. Thanks
October 17, 2017 at 16:35
So what. You don’t need the email to know what to do.
October 17, 2017 at 17:11
I know. But everyone that applied was supposed to get an email.
October 17, 2017 at 17:16
I know. But everyone that applied was supposed to get an email. I wanted to know if my second application (after the 18th) would be considered as a duplicate entry since I didn’t receive an email like everyone else.
October 17, 2017 at 17:20
Dude, read please all the information is there..! Read, both in this forum and in others, are questions that take time, the same official website of the government has told you that all who made the registration should do it again, including my own case
October 17, 2017 at 18:02
October 17, 2017 at 18:02
Please re-read the link
Pay attention to what I write in red.
October 25, 2017 at 11:11
I have already played the dv lottery for 2019.But Brit,is there after I realised I was suppose to mention my wufe’s name in my application which I forgot. My question now is, is it possible for my wife who have not played yet to do so and mentioning me as her husband in her own entries….? will it pose a problem for me who already submitted my entries …? Or to her who is still to play
October 25, 2017 at 13:34
Your wife can enter, and if she does so, so should follow the instructions. If you were selected, you would ignore the win because your “fogetting” will mean disqualification. If she is selected you can proceed.
October 25, 2017 at 14:16
Thanks a lot Brit for your kind response. But please I wish you should clarify me the more when you say,I quote”If you were selected, you would ignore the win because your “fogetting” will mean disqualification”.Does it mean if I win, I can only proceed alone without my wife since I didn’t mention her in my application…? And on her side if she wins, I can proceed with her together since she will mention me in her own application ……? Thanks for your kind attention….
October 25, 2017 at 14:22
I mean what I said. You have broken the rules and will be disqualified. “Going alone” would be immigration fraud.
October 25, 2017 at 18:01
Brit please ,as an expert, what advice can you give me …? To allow my wife include me on her application or I should allow my own as I have played and she should also play without including me …? Please I really need your advice before she goes into playing
October 25, 2017 at 19:24
Why is this difficult. I told you that your lie will cause you to be disqualified if you were selected. Would I tell you that it is OK for your wife to lie as well???
November 22, 2017 at 09:13
Thank you very much for allowing me to applied and I hope to win. God bless the Great United States of America.
November 22, 2017 at 15:23
when is the last date of the entry should we continued playing because Trump said there is no Dv
November 22, 2017 at 15:43
Trump hasn’t changed anything
November 22, 2017 at 16:05
Until when do we have to submit? Do I need to submit my step children that lives with their mom?
I am married but my passport is still my old last name, which one do I use?
November 22, 2017 at 22:31
DV2019 registration is now closed.
February 7, 2018 at 18:17
will it be possible for me to win dv2019 even if am not married?
February 7, 2018 at 18:29
Marriage is not a requirement.
February 15, 2018 at 03:46
Hi Brit mon, Yesterday I saw the message from Trump FB Page that he wants the CItizen voting for stopping DV Lottery. How it will impact DV 2019? usually how long it will take for the bill to pass even if congress agrees? in current scenario, do you foresee any challenges for DV lottery 2019
February 15, 2018 at 04:37
April 6, 2018 at 20:05
There are lot’s of information’s we are getting about this 2019 DV. What is your stand from this progress for DV2019? Is there any possibility for result?
April 6, 2018 at 21:33
Right now it looks likely to go ahead.
April 12, 2018 at 03:28
I am from India and my wife is from UAE. so I got a chance to file two entries in diversity lottery 2019. 1) Me as Main and Wife as Dependent. 2) My wife as main applicant and myself as dependent. hope both are valid.
I am waiting for the results eagerly. Not sure about the luck. Starting from when the results will be announced? I believe they will announce the result starting from May 1? Is it correct? Should we need to wait till sep to know that we are not selected or selected?
April 12, 2018 at 05:20
Results are issued in mid May. Read the entry website.
April 12, 2018 at 13:33
Thanks Britsimon. will the result come in one day or till what time we can wait to make sure we are selected or not selected?
April 12, 2018 at 13:57
The results are available in May. They tell you to check again later in the year in case more winners are added.
April 21, 2018 at 17:44
Which countries have more chance in diversity.
April 21, 2018 at 19:56
Within a region, the chance of selection is standard.
May 15, 2018 at 17:29
Hi, I have searched for this information everywhere but can’t find it! I hope you can help me. Do you know if they publish all results at once or do they keep adding winners through September? For eg:, If I check my dv results today and I didn’t win, is it recommended to go back and keep checking until September or does it just mean that’s it for me?
May 15, 2018 at 17:32
In some years they select a low number of people in the first draw (we don’t know that yet). In those years there is a chance of a smaller, second draw – typically around September/October. So – check again then – otherwise, no.
May 15, 2018 at 17:58
Hi Britsimon, If I have understood the above answer correctly. you are saying check today once and if is not selected, check again directly on Sep and not in between?
May 15, 2018 at 18:04
May 15, 2018 at 18:06
Thanks Britsimon for your quick Reply. That site is dead slow.. Fingers crossed. lGood luck everyone.
May 15, 2018 at 18:42
I am not sure whether the result has been published or not. It showed has not been selected for my case 🙁
May 15, 2018 at 18:42
That means – not selected.
May 15, 2018 at 18:44
ya correct. Is there any site which will show whether the second draw is there or not?
May 15, 2018 at 19:04
May 16, 2018 at 02:22
Hello, I entered my brother’s info on October 6th 2017, and when I go check if he is one of the winners, the site keeps telling me that any entry that transpired before October 18th is INVALID… Why? I thought the dates were October 1st to 30th???
May 16, 2018 at 02:31
May 19, 2018 at 10:47
Happy with your response.
Is it possible to know by now whether there will be a second draw for 2019 like before such that I can hope for success by September October.
May 19, 2018 at 15:16
No we don’t know yet. It will be a VERY small number of people if there is a draw.
May 21, 2018 at 09:18
I will wait up to September with a hope of being selected. I believe it’s a matter of God Intervention for someone to win.
October 12, 2018 at 20:51
Hello sir..im I from Algeria..and here in Algeria many selectees are from one specific area named “tizi ouzou” ..i heard that the cause of that is there is so many participants in that area..so my question is if a submit my entry in that area my IP adraddr obviously will ne in that area..so in this case would it be increase my chances to get selected ???
