I request you not to leave your regular business or job as you have got everything as soon as you need it and have a visa to the United States.
You’ve applied for the Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery (“DV Lottery”) and are now waiting to find out whether you’re one of the 50,000 foreign nationals selected to qualify for permanent residency in the United States (a “green card”). The lucky winners are selected and told in this report.
After you apply, you can check your status starting in early May of the following year
The DV Lottery is now fully automatic, and applicants from qualifying countries may only apply online. You will not get a letter or an email informing you that you have “won” or that your submission has been rejected. The electronic Entrant Status Check at www.dvlottery.state.gov/ESC is the only way to find out whether you were good.
Every autumn, entries for the DV Lottery are approved (usually for about a month from October to November, but check the DV Lottery website to make sure).
Beginning in early May of the year following your application, you will be able to use Entrant Status Check to see if you were picked at random from among the entrants from your country to apply for an immigrant visa.
Check your status as soon as possible and if you are a lottery winner, you will need to work quickly to gather all of the required details for submitting your green card application. Before October of the following year, all winners must apply for and receive their DV visas. In addition, since there are more “winning entries” than real visas available each year, you must move quickly to take advantage of the lottery.
What Is the Entrant Status Check and How Can I Use It?
Keep the confirmation number you were sent when you submitted your lottery entry because you’ll use it to use the Entrant Status Check feature. If you lose it, if you remember the email address you used to apply for the lottery and any personal details that will validate your identity, you will recover it on the Entrant Status Check page. You won’t be able to get your confirmation number any other way from the State Department.
Enter your confirmation number (a 16-digit number that starts with the year of the DV Lottery for which you applied, such as 2020 or 2021), your last name, and your birth year.
People who are chosen in the lottery will be notified and given instructions about how to apply for an immigrant visa (if they live abroad) or change their status (if currently in the U.S. and eligible to adjust). You must show that you fulfill the job or educational criteria and that you are otherwise eligible to enter the US. When applying for an immigrant visa or a green card, you may want to enlist the help of an accomplished immigration attorney.
Don’t Be a Victim of Visa Lottery Scams
The best way to find out whether you’ve been chosen for the DV Lottery is to use the Entrant Status Check. You will not get an email from the US government.
Many unscrupulous people have promised DV applicants that if they pay a premium, they will be pushed to the front of the queue, receive further entries, or receive some preferential treatment. Other scammers have submitted emails purporting to be from the US government, claiming to have won the DV lottery and instructing recipients on how to pay a premium for an immigrant visa.
Both of these are phishing schemes designed to obtain your personal information and benefit from your desire to live and work in the United States.
