WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE SELECTED: If you have been selected for further processing in the DV Lottery program, follow the instructions on the Entrant Status Check page on how to proceed with the application.
WARNING: Be careful of fraudulent emails and letters from scammers posing as the U.S. government, asking for payments to process winning entries. The Department of State does NOT notify successful DV applicants by letter or email. Furthermore, some companies posing as the U.S. government have sought money to complete DV application. There is no fee to complete and submit a DV Lottery application.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you have lost your confirmation information, you will not be able to check your DV entry status. DOS will not be able to resend the confirmation page information to you.
