The DV-2019 entry period which began on October 3 is confirmed closed now, by the Canadian embassy. They also confirmed that due to a technical issue, all the entries submitted during October 3-10 are not valid (this means that all those entries have been excluded from the system, and therefore they will not count as a duplicate entry).
