How can I check my 2020 DV result?
The Department of State may select more DV–2020 entries on October 1, 2019, or after. Entrants who have lost their confirmation number can enter further identifying details on the official website to retrieve it by clicking the “Forgot Confirmation Number” link. May 3, 2019
Applicants who submitted an entry under the Diversity Visa 2020 green card lottery (DV-2020) can check the status of their application online starting on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, at noon (EDT). The DV-2020 entry period opened on October 3, 2018, and closed on November 6, 2018. Only confirmation information for entries submitted during this period is valid for checking your status.
All DV-2020 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, 2020, entrants are able to check the status of their entry through the E-DV website at http://dvlottery.state.gov/ESC. 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.
