**** UPDATE ****
The DV-2019 entry period is being restarted and extended.
I am getting lots of people asking the same questions so I want to write this one time and refer people to this message.
- The DV lottery entry site is down for maintenance.
- This was not planned – something broke, and they are actively trying to fix it.
- They are aware of the problem.
- There is no need to phone anyone!
- There is no projected timeline for when this will get fixed.
- I don’t know anything about the details.
- It will get fixed.
- I don’t know if they will extend the entry period because of the outage.
- This is nothing to do with Trump, travel bans or any particular country.
- There are 3 weeks left to enter – no need to panic.

Hi Brits, I actually applied before october 3rd, and according to the information, it says applications between oct 3- 10 should be repeated, then I recently got a link from my friend saying that due to the current political stress it might be the last time this program will exist and that all applications prior to mantainance should be repeated. Am scared of applying more than once.Are all applicants before mantainance supposed to re apply or only those between oct 3-10

It sounds like you applied through a non official website/agent. In that case I don’t know whether they have entered your application of not. So you should ask them. In future Don’t use any other way of entering the lottery other than the official page, and do it yourself.

My question is if someone apply for me in the DV lottery 2019 program and after finishing send me the confirmation number to save it with me, suddenly i saw he wrote my name as Almogdad but me usually write it as Elmogdad, What should i do in this case,
Re apply again with correct name or what??

Do not re-apply. If you win it can be corrected.

If you get selected in the lottery you can ask some questions. I don’t advise about fiancé visas.

Universities here are not free. There are grants and scholarships available but you should not assume you can get a free ride.
