Entrants in the Diversity Visa 2019 (Green Card Lottery) program have until Monday, September 30th to check the status of their entries on the US State Department’s Electronic Diversity Visa Lottery website.
DV-2019 is for those who submitted their entries during the October 18, 2017 to November 2nd, 2017 registration period.
Anyone who submitted an entry during this registration period and won but fails to check their winning status by September 30th will be out of luck, as the only way to confirm if you won is through the web portal. After September 30th the DV-2019 portal will no longer be available.
Those who participated in DV-2020 have until September 30th, 2020.
Meanwhile, the US State Department announced that this year’s registration period (for DV-2021) will run between Tuesday, October 5th, 2019 and Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 (READ: Registration Period for the 2021 Diversity Visa Program Begins October 2nd, 2019).
New for DV-2021, all primary entrants will be required to have a valid, unexpired passport to participate in the lottery (READ: Requirements to Participate in the DV-2021 Diversity Visa Program).
