Applicants whose applications are randomly selected from among all qualified entries will be notified by email by USA Green Card. This notification normally occurs within 6 months of the close of the DV Lottery program. At this time, the lottery deadline usually falls sometime in November, therefore, results are normally available in May of the following year.
Apart from the notification provided by USA Green Card, all applicants can access their personal account to view their status at any time and can also independently check their entry status using their unique DV confirmation number.
USA Green Card notifies all applicants of their results, even if they are not selected.
