Married children and children who are already aged 21 or older when you submit your entries are not eligible for the DV lottery 2019 program. However, the Child Status Protection Act protects children from

A child who is already a U.S. citizen or LPR is not eligible for a Diversity Visa; you will not be penalized for either including or omitting such family members from your entry.
Failure to list all children who are eligible will result in disqualification of the principal applicant and refusal of all visa applications in the case at the time of the visa interview.
