Is U.S. Electronic Diversity Visa down? Check all dvlottery.state.gov outages

The above graph displays service status activity for Dvlottery.state.gov over the last 10 automatic checks. The blue bar displays the response time, which is better when smaller. If no bar is displayed for a specific time it means that the service was down and the site was offline.

Service Status History

* Times displayed are PT, Pacific Time (UTC/GMT 0) | Current server time is 13:19

We have tried pinging U.S. Electronic Diversity Visa website using our server and the website returned the above results. If dvlottery.state.gov is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress.

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows – (Start > Command Prompt > type “ipconfig /flushdns” and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it’s not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

I am trying to lodge a lottery submission but upon entering the details on the first page and when i click on “continue”, i get IE displaying error “Internet Explorer Cannot display the webpage”

This also happens when i try to do the photo validation. I tried from my other laptop and did same thing. All other webpages work fine for me. I can even get the first page of www.dvlottery.state.gov fine but cant lodge submission after that. I also tried firefox and both SSL method and non SSL method

Is the DV Lottery Website down. Please advise

Finally i managed to lodge the applications. Pheww

The reason why it got left so late was coz i just came back to my country (US) literally today..from another country. And i had like 5 Postal mails waiting from my relatives wanting me to lodge it for them.

As i suspected it was probably IE 7.0 o my PC or a combination of my firewall (even though i disabled it).

So i rushed to Work and of course it worked just fine with no sign of overloading the server whatsoever!

BUT the Photo validation link is not working, it just times out.

Anyways Entry went thru 10 Hrs before deadline . Pheww

I had the same thing. I’m not very techno-savvy but when I tried to apply on our wireless connected laptop I kept getting that same message, over and over again, various times of the day. I tried it on our desktop which is connected directly to the modem and it was fine. Photo Validator worked great. The application worked great. Went back to the laptop to try the 2nd application (husband’s) and same thing, that error message. In fact, just tried it again, from my laptop – error message.

Same IE on both, but the desktop has the firewall disabled. Maybe that’s it? I dunno, I find PC problems such a pain. You could spend hours trying to figure out why.

Good luck everyone.

I just did the regular application. Not the SSL. From my desktop PC. Doesn’t work from my laptop at all. I have no idea why.

Less than 3 hours to go.

I finally had to disable my whole Internet Security Suite – kaspersky
and then it seemed to work fine even though Photo Validation was intermittently not working. Although last year everything was smoothly working with my same PC.

I would say their website definitely has been revamped and their new implementation no doubt has caused problems.

Oh well what i am EXTREMELY happy about is the reference numbers given and that you can check back to see if you won or not. No more waiting in vain n hoping mail didnt get lost in Postal System.
