The DV2024 dates have not been officially published by the Department of State yet – BUT as has happened in a couple of previous years it looks like an embassy has “jumped the gun” and leaked the entry dates.

This announcement is taken from their Facebook account and shows the dates from October 5 to November 8th. These dates are different to the 2022 and 2023 dates, and have the appropriate length of time, so I believe these dates, whilst not yet official, will be accurate. The official announcement will probably come in the next week to 2 weeks – which is “normal”.


So – get ready for your entry.

A couple of questions I know will be asked:

  1. Can someone enter if they previously were selected in DV2023 or any other year – YES
  2. Do you need a passport to enter this year – NO
