Technical Problem with the Green Card Lottery DV-19

The actual submission period for the Green Card Lottery DV-19 started on October 3rd, 2017. The entrant website over which applicants submit their Green Card Lottery applications, however, experienced a technical problem at the beginning of the month. The U.S. Department of State announced that all applications submitted between October 3rd and October 10th are not valid. The new submission period started on October 18th, 2017

What should I do if I have already applied to the DV-19? 

If you have applied to the Green Card Lottery DV-19 with The American Dream, then you can rest assured that your application is in good hands. We guarantee the correct submission of your application and are aware of the technical issue. Therefore, your applications have not been affected. Your Participation certificate will be sent to you once your application has been successfully submitted to the U.S. authorities. 

If you applied for the Green Card Lottery without help from The American Dream, then there are a few things you must take into consideration. Any application submitted between October 3rd and October 10th are not valid and must be re-submitted. These applications will not count as duplicate entries. Any confirmation numbers and documentation from applications submitted from October 3rd to October 10th should be thrown away. New applications will be accepted over the Electronic Diversity Visa website starting from October 18, 2017. Remember that you have to re-do the entire application process. Customer sof The American Dream can keep calm, we will take care of you and you don't have to worry!

When is the new Green Card Lottery DV-19 deadline? 

The technical issue with the website pushed back the starting date of the Green Card Lottery DV-19 submission period to October 18th, 2017. This also means that the deadline for applying to the lottery has also been extended. This is good news for The American Dream customers! If you have not yet applied to this year’s Green Card Lottery, then you now have until November 12th, 2017 to apply for the Green Card Lottery with the help of The American Dream.

Due to a sinking number of Green Card Lottery participants, the chances of winning this year have never been higher!  The extension deadline is a sign that this is a chance you shouldn’t pass up!

Do not hesitate and take advantage of these high, and possibly last, chances to win a U.S. Green Card!
