Applicants can access the electronic DV entry form (E-DV) at the official E-DV website, during the registration period. DV instructions also are available on the Department of State’s public website

Beginning May 7, 2019, DV-2020 entrants will be able to use their unique confirmation number provided at registration to check the online Entrant Status Check at E-DV website to see if their entry was selected. Entrant Status Check will inform successful entrants how to apply for DVs for themselves and their eligible family members. Successful selectees will be able to learn their visa interview appointments by checking the Entrant Status Check.
