Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Oct 04, 2017 - The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, also known as the Green Card Lottery (DV-Lottery), came into existence following passage of the Immigration Act of 1990.

For this year, the DV-2019 registration process begins at noon, Tuesday, October the 3, 2017, and runs through to noon Tuesday, November 7, 2017.
