Applicants who submitted an entry under the Diversity Visa 2024 green card lottery (DV-2024) can check the status of their application online starting on May 6, 2023 at noon (EDT).
The DV-2024 entry period opened on October 5, 2022, and closed on November 8, 2022. Only confirmation information for entries submitted during this period are valid for checking your status.
All DV-2024 applicants must check their status online, and will not receive a notification letter or e-mail from the U.S. government. Diversity Visa Entry Status Check will only be provided through the Department of State secure online site. Until September 30, 2024, entrants are able to check the status of their entry through the E-DV website at https://dvprogram.state.gov .
Entrants need to use their own confirmation page information from the time of their entry to check the status to find out if their Diversity Visa Lottery entry was or was not selected. Entrants will need to enter their last name, year of birth and confirmation number from the receipt.
The Department of State advises the public of a notable increase in fraudulent emails and letters sent to potential Diversity Visa (DV) program (Visa Lottery) applicants. The scammers behind these fraudulent emails and letters are posing as the U.S. government in an attempt to extract payment from DV applicants.
Please keep your confirmation number until at least September 30, 2024, even if you are not selected on May 7, 2023. The Department of State may select more DV-2024 entries on October 1, 2023 or thereafter.
