We are just over a day and a half to the end of the 2024 Diversity Visa Lottery!
The Lottery began on Wednesday, October 5, 2022,, and it’s going to end in less than two days’ time – on November 8, 2022, to be exact. This is therefore a final call to those who are interested, but who have not yet submitted their entry to do so immediately or run the risk of being left out of this year’s opportunity.
Currently, access to the official website is the most challenging since the Lottery began over a month ago. But this is not strange. That’s the general experience toward the end of the Lottery. And the situation seems to even be worse this year considering that entrants don’t need a passport to participate.
With just several hours left, those who have been postponing entering during the past month are now eager to do so. Many will spend endless hours trying to succeed. But with the website currently super-saturated, and the prevailing situation likely to remain up to the very end, there will certainly be some who will eventually not succeed in submitting their entry. (That’s how it is every year).
It is because of this that entrants are advised against attempting to enter the Lottery in the final days. Those who heeded the advice and entered early on are on the safe side. Those who didn’t may have some regret – now or in a couple of days.
Results from the soon-ending Lottery will be published on May 6, 2023, after which those selected will have the chance to present their official application to the Unted States government for immigrant status.
The Diversity Visa Lottery is the ‘entry point’ to the Diversity Visa program, a US immigration program administered by the US State Department. It is held from early October to early November every year. After the current one ends, the next chance interested persons will have to participate in the Lottery – for US Fiscal Year 2025 – will be from the first week of October 2023.
Wishing those who’ve managed to enter the DV 2024 Lottery all the best as they look forward to being selected!
