Discussion in 'Lottery Visas - DV' started by lawm, Mar 24, 2018.
Thank you Sm1smom.... its good to be back and seeing familiar faces.
Of course.. a lot OC and EU selectees so far, on this forum at least.
Like every year.
We used to get an awful lot of Nigerians on the forum too, before Nigeria became ineligible.
btw did you ever do the calculation I suggested? I did a rough one, I am sure i missed out all eligible countries, but roughly population of St Lucia worked out at 0.004% of all DV-eligible countries. Probably smaller if I had time to actually do the population counts properly. So your estimate of 0.002% chance is perfectly in line statistically, most stats calcs I've seen don't drill probability down to the third decimal.
Fun fact: population of St Lucia is less than 5% of just the city I was living in when I got selected, never mind the country.
....and there it is: "the Entry HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED"
Hopefully Trump won't get rid of DV2020......oh well, life goes on if he does. Big congratulations to all who have been selected. Wishing you a smooth and as less stress a process as possible.
I think Trump will have other things to worry about
I'm sure that new immigration discussions will be happening soon. We have to wait and see but i don't see the DV Lottery surviving to the Trump Administration.
That’s probably true Pierre, I wonder what will happen to those currently selected. I guess worst case scenario they end it before interviews start in Oct for the 2019 group.
I think DV 2019 people will be OK (My opinion). The big risk is DV 2020 but only time will tell.
Any idea if there'll be any additional draws this year?
