Numerical results DV-2018 Entries announced

The US Department of State issued the results of the drawing for the 2018 Visa Lottery. 

For DV-2018 in total 14,692,258 participants submitted a qualified entry (23,088,613 with derivatives). Approximately 115,968 of these entries were selected for further processing through the Kentucky Consular Centre (KCC). 

Selected Entrants can submit a Visa Application (apply for a Green Card). Every year 50,000 visas are made available for the Diversity Program. 

The larger number of “winners” should insure that all available Diversity Visas are issued during Fiscal Year 2018. Past experience shows that some of the first 50,000 Selected Entrants decides not to pursue a visa. The Visa Number is then used for the Selectee next in line. The place in line is given at random.
