DV 2018

Diversity Visa 2019, also known as DV-2019 is the official name for the green card lottery which was drawn during March/April of 2012. The final date for submitting your green card application for DV-2018 was the end of October 2017.

After that date, the USCIS office commences the processing of the applications that were submitted, and eliminates any double entries, or applications that do not meet the legal requirements for entry, or have been submitted incorrectly.

The successful applicants of DV-2019 will be notified of winning the green card submission around July 2019, following which they will be invited for an interview at the nearest US embassy to their residence.
