In order to check the DV program results, participants are required to follow a few simple steps. Checking the status of the application of the Green Card Lottery is carried out through the State Department official website using a confirmation code received upon registration.
The main stages of checking the results of the Green Card Lottery:
1. Log into the official website of the State Department.
2. Click the “Check Status” link, and later click “Continue” on the participants welcome page.
3. Enter your data: confirmation number of the Green Card Lottery, surname and year of birth, as well as the confirmation code that was received upon registration.
How do you know if you won?
After filling in the mandatory fields in the status check you will receive one of the two messages; In case you become a Green Card Lottery winner, the system will announce the following statement:“You have been randomly selected for further processing …”. In this case, you should start preparing for all the legal steps including an interview at the embassy and gathering all the necessary documentation.
It is important to understand that checking the status of the Green Card Lottery and getting a winning notification does not guarantee obtaining the visa. Winning the lottery is only the first step, after which the applicant needs to pass successfully an interview with representatives of the consulate, go through a medical examination and gather a large number of documents to confirm their compliance with the stated requirements of the program.
In case your application was not selected, the following announcement will appear: “Based on the information provided, the entry hasn’t been selected for further processing.”This means that this year you will not have the privilege to obtain a visa to America. However, don’t get upset and never give up because next year you might get lucky.
When should I check the results of the Green Card Lottery?
Checking the status of Green Card applications for 2018 (DV-2018) can be done from May 2, 2017 to September 30, 2018. According to the US State Department, until September 30, 2017, you can check the status of applications that participated in the Green Card Lottery for 2017 (DV-2017).
