DV 2021 registration period extended over website’s technical hitches

The Kentucky Consular Center has extended the registration period of the 2021 Diversity Visa Program by two weeks. The new closing date is November 19, 2019.

According to a statement, the extension of the period is due to the technical hitches experienced by the registration website which prevented many from registering.


People worldwide trying to register for the 2021 America Diversity Visa were hit with a technical challenge that prevented them from completing their registrations.

Users of the website were unable to progress to the next stages to complete their registrations and were greeted with the message “Site cannot to be found”.

The US DV lottery grants 50,000 persons green card annually to live in the United States.
