The government have posted the official instructions for the DV22025 lottery today. The main points are:

  • Entry period begins on October 4 and will continue to November 7.
  • Passport not needed.
  • Anyone from eligible countries can enter including current or former selectees.
  • Enter for free at

The UK has been added to the list of eligible countries. The reason is a decrease in the number of people from the UK below the 50k number over 5 years. This was probably due to the quiet Covid times, so I don’t expect that to continue for very many years – so get in while you can if you are from the UK.
