U.S Visa: DV-2023 Update for DV2025 Lottery


DV-2023 Update: Are you ready for the DV2025 Lottery? These are the dates predicted for the Green Card Lottery Application this year. The 2025 Diversity Visa Program entry period will open on Wednesday October 4 and ending Tuesday November 7, 2023.

On September 7, 2023, the United States Travel – State Department shared DV-2023 update on their official verified twitter page. Below is the message shared on Travel – State Dept.

The read:

“The Department of State has issued all available diversity visas (DVs) for the 2023 Diversity Visa (DV) Program.  We know the conclusion of the 2023 program may be disappointing to selectees who were unable to receive a visa.

The DV Program is limited to issuing approximately 55,000 visas each fiscal year. Selection does not guarantee that an applicant will receive a visa interview or a visa. Selection merely means the person may be eligible to participate in the DV program and may potentially apply for a visa.


Given that some of the first 55,000 persons selected will not  qualify for visas or ultimately choose not to participate in the program, more individuals are selected to participate each year than visas available. This is done to ensure we are able to issue the maximum number of visas available under the DV program in any given year.

The 2025 Diversity Visa Program entry period will open on October 4, 2023, and we encourage all who are eligible to apply, including selectees who were unable to obtain a visa during a prior program year.”
