A Person I know got a DV VISA 2014 in August 2014. 30th September 2014 passed before she traveled to the USA. To my understanding her VISA has expired. Am I wrong? Does she stand any chance anymore? Any links to when you cannot be admitted even if you have a valid VISA? advise will be appreciated

Your understanding is incorrect. The visa must be *issued* by 30 September, but it is valid for travel until the expiry date on the visa - usually 6 months from interview (occasionally less). So if she was issued in August she probably has an expiry date sometime in February - plenty of time yet.

Susie is correct; visas are usually valid for 6 months (occasionally less, if your medical was early).

Oh! Thank you SusieQQQ and Queein Penguin. I guess I was wrong and I raised her adrenaline for nothing, my bad!

So to make sure I am clear, that means as long as her Visa is valid and her medical has not expired she can travel to the USA even if the 2014 Lottery period ended on 30th September.

Thanks again
