The State Department chooses lottery winners by random computer selection. Results will be published starting May 6, 2023 through September 30, 2024, on the official DV lottery entry status website.
Foreign nationals can learn whether they were selected only by visiting the official DV website and entering their confirmation number. The State Department does not notify entrants by letter, e-mail, fax or telephone. The official website is the only legitimate source of lottery results.
