You need to wait till the DV2013 status check becomes available.... suppose that will be any moment now.

Yes, I realised after that I was calculating on GMT and not on BST!! I have been on it constantly and it is nearly always bringing up server busy and on the couple of occasions that I have been lucky enough to get the page that asks my details and I submit them it is timing out before I get to find out!!! I now have no nails left, been trying for 5 years

I get to that page for DV2012 but I have not been able to get to that page for the DV2013.

2012 / 2013 is all on the same page, for 2013 it says to click link above (2012 link) and that is taking you to 2013 page but I still haven't been able to get all the way through yet!

I've checked and I've been successful. Only problem now is that my wife has got cold feet. I need to try and sell it to her again. She never thought we would get selected!!

No luck - guess my GF will remain in Australia for a while longer.

Thumbs up Re: DV lottery 2013


Checked on day 1 no luck as server was still set for 2012 entrants.
Checked day 2 BINGO!
Forms complete and on way to Kentucky.
Will keep
This thread updated.
Still not sure where we want to settle yet.

I checked and was not successful, knowing my luck, once I have fully invested my $500K for an EB5 and hired 10 staff - I will then be successful
