Green Card Status

Random individuals are selected by the computer based on visa allocations specified for each region.  You need to visit the Diversity Visa website “Entrant Status Check” and use your unique confirmation number to know whether you were selected or not.

If you are among the selected individuals, you will be directed to a confirmation page that will provide you with further instructions. This may include information about the visa fee and details (date and time) of your immigration interview. You will also be provided with instructions on how to follow through with the process.

The Entrant Status Check also notifies you if you were not selected. U.S. embassy or consulates do not provide any list of the names of successful entrants.  You need to keep your unique identification number in a secure place to know the status of your application.

Random selection in the Diversity Visa lottery DOES NOT GUARANTEE that you will receive a visa. Your selection proves that you are eligible to apply for diversity visa and will be granted one after you successfully pass the interview and fulfill visa requirements.
