As confirmed by the official DV 2024 Program instructions, the DV 2024 Lottery begins today. The Lottery will kick off at precisely 4:00 pm (16 hours) GMT today, and will run until 5:00 pm (17 hours) GMT on November 8, 2022, a time referred to as the Entry period.
Those who are eligible to enter the DV Program may do so anytime during the Entry period by accessing the official Diversity Visa Program website. It is however not advisable to wait until the final week before attempting to participate in the Lottery as high traffic to the official website could prevent your entry from being submitted at that time.
The Diversity Visa Entry form will only be available on the official website during the Entry period. Selection of qualifies entries will be carried out in the months following the Entry period, and the results will be published in early May 2023.
Wishing you best of success as you endeavor to achieve the American dream!
