    I will begin this:

    My name is Ismail, was first introduced to DV LOTTERY program through a friend who had his uncle won in 2006 fiscal year maybe. and that was in 2012, so I have Google this term “Green Card” and surprisingly I have an Adwords AD on top of search results linking to a fake registration website, so I have registered a fake application and that was in october 2012.. I didn’t get lucky with DV-2015 as well, and now my fingers crossed for DV-2016!

    DV-2016 entrant

    – Name: Ismail
    – Country: Morocco
    – Registration date: 3rd October, 2014.

    what about you?

    Hi Everyone!

    So it looks like I’m the second person to introduce myself.

    I’m a 25-year old Dutch girl, which means I’m from the Netherlands, Europe.

    I’ve also been struck by the ‘American Dream’ virus ever since my first visit there. I lived in Florida for one year doing pilot training and I also have a bachelors degree in Information Science which I got in The Netherlands. Now I work as a Software Quality Test Engineer in the Netherlands.

    I applied for the DV lottery 4 times, and for DV2015 I was one of the lucky winners (or more politicaly correct: selectees).

    I studied a lot of forums, websites and other things I could find about the DV-lottery, so I became a bit of an expert, also known as DV-geek. I’m the admin of one of the most popular FB-groups of DV2015 (https://www.facebook.com/groups/671695982883784/), and have been made a moderator of this forum as well. I hope to answer a lot (if not all) of your questions!

    Last but not least: My Case Number (CN) is 2015EU33XXX so my interview will be around June 2015 hopefully.

    Hi,

    My name is Alex and I am from Greece. My first attempt with the dv lottery program was in 2005, through a website that asked for a paid fee of about 150 euros. Sadly I wasn’t selected, neither on my second attempt in 2007 which my sister who lived in the US had paid a similar website to apply for me and my parents.
    My 3rd attempt was in 2013 for the ’15 program which I got selected for further processing. Sadly, as I learned browsing the net, I have made the mistake of choosing the wrong country of eligibility and that zeroes any chance I had of issuing a visa.
    I also have a high rank number 2015EU00037***.

    Hello Alex,
    it is really great that you got selected as you entered through the official website..
    @britsimon , a DV LOTTERY EXPERT, replied to your thread, and now you need to start believing that you won’t have any issue as you made the mistake in selecting the country of birth.
    Thank You Brit, and Alex: cheer up and start get ready for your visa approval 😉

    Hello Andrea,
    you are a DV-2016 entrant and once the results are available ( starting from May 5th, 2015 – 12 noon EDT ), you should log in to the Entry Status Check website ( http://www.dvlottery.state.gov/ESC ) and see if you have been selected.
    Also, KCC does notify those who got selected by mail, they did it this year, but they don’t always guarantee that. so, set a reminder and when the results are available you are recommended to check your entry status by yourself.
    Good Luck ! 😀

    Confirmation Page

    Hi Samuel,

    I have applied for DV2016 for my younger brother as he was born in eligible list of countries, I got to know about something called DV lottery through a friend and it was the last day with only couple of minutes left to apply the online from. somehow I made it and applied during last hour I suppose and I got this page where it says “SUCCESS” with confirmation number.

    I’m still in dilemma, is my brother’s entry accepted successfully? I know that this is really a stupid question to ask when I have the page of SUCCESS after enrollment but just want to be sure and even the time stamp shows that I applied before 12:00 noon on Nov 3rd. but infact as per my knowledge it was past noon i guess 🙁 ..

    Appreciate your support and response.

    Hi amrohadi,

    First, congratulations that you made it and applied before the process is closed as you were just introduced to the program.

    I’m still in dilemma, is my brother’s entry accepted successfully? I know that this is really a stupid question to ask when I have the page of SUCCESS after enrollment but just want to be sure and even the time stamp shows that I applied before 12:00 noon on Nov 3rd. but in fact as per my knowledge it was past noon i guess 🙁 ..

    Yes – your brother’s entry is accepted since you have got the confirmation information including a conf. number by the end. and actually it does not matter when you have applied ( I know DV-2015 winners who applied within the last day,a just like you did, and they won! ) because that doesn’t increase or decrease the chance of getting selected..

    We hope your brothers gets selected. but, what about you? are you a DV-2016 entrant as well?

    😎
