DV lottery 2024 results: From DV official page (dvprogram.state.gov) it says, the entry period for the DV Lottery 2024 diversity visa program was between 5th of October 2022 and 8th of November 2022. Entries are not being accepted at this time.
DV 2024 Results
It also says, “DV 2024 entrants may enter their confirmation information through the link, starting at noon EDT, Eastern Daylight Time on May 6, 2023. The DV 2024 registration period opens 5th of October 2022 and closes on November 8th, 2022.
DV 2024 entrant should keep their confirmation number until at least September 30th, 2024. You will only check your DV 2024 results from May 6, starting from the noon time of the Eastern Daylight Time.”
If you convert that to your home country time, then you might see the exact time in your home country time. But it will be noon Time, Eastern Daylight Time. That is exactly the time in the United States.
This will be the exact date when you will be able to enter your confirmation information and check your results, and from that time it will continue up to the 30th of September 2024.
With only few days remaining, you should know that immediately the results date starts, you are supposed to check whether you are successfully selected. Once you realize you have been selected, you immediately start filling that important immigration form, the DS-260 form.
You’re supposed to fill it as early as that. Immediately you realize you’ve been selected, start that day and fill it slowly and correctly and submit it as early as that time. But for you to fill this form, there are requirements, and without those requirements, then you cannot be able to fill this form.
Requirements to fill DS-260 form
One of the most important requirement would be your travel document, and that is the passport. As the principal applicant, have you gotten your passport? If you had applied for the DV lottery last year on October and you had no passport, what have you done? Have you applied for one?
Many countries, the process of obtaining the passport does not take a single day. You apply and then you book for the biometrics, and then you go ahead for the biometrics and wait for the passport to be processed. This may take you even up to five months, three months, two months, four months, one month.
If you don’t apply it at this time, or if you have not applied for it, if you don’t have the document, immediately the results are out, you cannot be able to fill the DS-260 form as the principal applicant. You cannot fill the DS-260 form because you don’t have the passport.
When you check the results and you realize you have won, if you apply for the passport that date, that means you might get late up to three or four or two months before you fill this form DS-260, and that means late submission of the DS-260 form.
Late submission of the DS-260 form also leads to late reception of your Second Notification Letter (2NL).
For example, someone has case number 23,000 in the DV Lottery 2023 and have already gone through the interview and is now headed for the United States. The reason is simply because he submitted the DS-260 form very early. Immediately after the results were out, on 12th, he had finished filling the DS-260 form and submitted.
Also, someone with case number less than 10,000 who submitted their DS-260 form in August, up to now they have not received their second notification letter, simply because they submitted their DS-260 late.
So the point is, if you don’t have the passport, why don’t you take the chance now, as early as now, and start processing the passport? Even if you’re not sure that you will be selected, why don’t you apply?
Because the passport does not expire within a year or two or three. It might go up to 10 years. So there is no risk of you applying the passport now.
Just do it now, so that if you emerge a winner of the DV Lottery, then you have the documents and you fill the DS-260 form as early as you have seen the results. And that will prevent all these questions about why have I not received my DS-260 form, whereas my case number is low?
Late submission of DS-260 form leads to let interview scheduling and late 2NL reception. Get your passport as early as now and be with it ready, incase you get selected and fill your DS-260 form as early as it would be possible.
I wish you success and I pray for you to be selected for the DV interview.
