Attention Diversity Visa (DV) Applicants: The Department is temporarily delaying the opening of the Entrant Status Check for DV-2021 until June 6, 2020. This change is because of our committed response to COVID-19, and will not negatively impact the administration of DV-2021. Each year, the Department of State conducts a random selection of Diversity Immigrant Visa (DV) applicants, based on allocations of available visas in each region and country, from all registered entries. On or about June 6, information on the Entrant Status Check on the Electronic Diversity Visa (E-DV) website is updated to inform all entrants if their online registration was selected or not. You will need to enter your confirmation number, which you obtained when you filled out your entry form, to check your entry status. If you have lost your confirmation number, you will not be able to check the status of your entry. We will not be able to resend the confirmation number to you. Entrants in the Diversity Visa 2020 program may check the status of their entries on the E-DV website from May 7, 2019 through September 30, 2020. Entrants in the Diversity Visa 2021 program may check the status of their entries on the E-DV website from June 6, 2020 through September 30, 2021.
