New Entry Period for Diversity Visa Program DV-2019

17 October 2017 - 173   - 0

The US Embassy in Colombo announced today that due to technical issues, the registration period for DV-2019 is being restarted and all entries made prior to October 18, 2017 will need to be resubmitted for the entrant to be considered. 

The technical issue was a failure to properly account for country of eligibility if the entrant was selecting a country of eligibility other than his/her place of birth, which is permitted in certain limited circumstances.  This was not a result of any outside interference or hacking attempt.

The Embassy said in a news release that the   new registration period for DV-2019 opens for electronic entries at 11:00 amWednesday, October 18, 2017 and closes at 11:00amWednesday, November 22, 2017.

Applicants can access the electronic DV entry form (E-DV) at the official E-DV website, dvlottery.state.gov, during the registration period. DV instructions also are available on the Department of State’s public webpage at usvisas.state.gov/dv/instructions. All other eligibility requirements remain the same.
