For clarity, the previous lotteries were run like this:

  • DV-2022: October 7 to November 10, 2020
  • DV-2021: October 2 to November 5, 2019
  • DV-2020: from 3 October to November 6, 2018
  • DV-2019: from October 18 to November 22, 2017

As a rule, accepting applications lasts a little over a month, so everyone will have enough time to register. Winners of this year’s lottery will be eligible for a green card in 2023.

Recall that registration takes place only on one official site lottery – www. dvlottery.state.gov. The registration process is free, and a person with minimal knowledge of the language can fill out the application.

Before filling out an application, read the step-by-step instructions. This will reduce the risk of errors when filling out the questionnaire.

However, we do not advise you to seek the help of intermediaries. There is a big risk of being caught by scammers. Therefore, it is better to submit an application personally, without intermediaries.

If you did not win the green card , it is important to know that not everyone who won can usually pass a full range of procedures, the US Department of State adds new lucky ones and potential green card holders over time.

Therefore, even if you have now received a notification that you have not been selected, you can check your result again later – the data may change.
