The Diversity Visa (DV) Program’s selection results are generally available in May. All applicants must access the Electronic Diversity Visa system online and enter their unique confirmation number. That is the only way to access selection results and all information linked to the entry and interview scheduling.
Being randomly chosen as a selectee does not guarantee that you will receive a visa. The selection results merely mean that you are eligible to apply and potentially get a Diversity Visa if your rank number becomes eligible for final processing. Qualification standards are simple but strictly enforced. Each applicant must demonstrate a sufficient level of education or a combination of qualifying skills and work experience and must meet any other eligibility criteria for a U.S. immigrant.
