DV Lottery Results Winners List

The U.S. Department of State has announced the winners of the 2024 Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery. Out of the millions who entered last year’s lottery, 55,000 applicants have been selected to apply for permanent resident status.

How to Check Your Status

To check whether you’ve been selected, you can visit the “DV Entrant Status Check” portal on the State Department website. Enter the confirmation information you received when registering for the visa lottery to check your status.

The State Department does not notify selectees directly, so this is the only way to confirm whether you’ve been selected. Results will be available on the portal through the end of September 2023.

What to Do Next

Being selected in the lottery does not guarantee that you will be approved for a green card. It simply means that you are eligible to apply for a diversity visa. If you’ve been selected, you will need to complete the green card application process to prove that you are admissible to the U.S.

This process includes filing Form DS-260 (the online immigrant visa application), attending a visa interview at a U.S. Embassy or consulate, and paying any required government filing fees.

Start the Application Process Today

Selectees are encouraged to start the application process as soon as possible, as all of the diversity visas available this fiscal year must be issued no later than September 30, 2024.

Tips for Success

Here are some tips for increasing your chances of success in the green card application process:

  • Gather all of the required documentation in advance.
  • Be prepared to answer questions about your background and qualifications.
  • Be honest and transparent throughout the process.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can consult with an immigration attorney.


The Diversity Visa Lottery is a great opportunity for people from eligible countries to immigrate to the United States legally. If you’ve been selected in the lottery, congratulations! Be sure to start the green card application process as soon as possible to increase your chances of success.
