DV 2019

DV-2019 is the next coming American Government's official diversity visa program that is going to accept application forms in this year 2017. Recently U.S State Department had made an official announcement as "Dates for the DV-2019 program registration period will be widely publicized in the coming months. Those interested in entering the DV-2019 program should check the Department of State’s Visa web page in the coming months." This statement was published in their visa bulletin page, last month. So the next draw will provide application forms though the internet in this year 2017 for to participate under the DV 2019 draw. Usually around 50,000 immigrant visas are issued under any fiscal year draw. So there will be no change in the number of entry permits under this FY 2019 program too.

Eligible people only can participate in this draw and this program is covered with strict rules and they are implemented strictly. Only thing you have to take care is to go to the correct website. There are plenty of website with official log embalm posing as the official DV website of the American diversity visa program.
