The opening of the Entrant Status Check for DV-2021 applicants has been postponed to June 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs has hinted in a response to a twitter user who enquired about the Diversity Visa Lottery Program.


Results for the DV-2021 was scheduled to be released on May 5, 2020. The Dept. of State, however, did not mention if the delay is in connection with the global outbreak of coronavirus.

The Department is expected to release an official statement in the coming days.

The Diversity Visa Lottery is a program by the US federal government that gives green cards to 50,000 foreigners each year.

DV-2021 Entrants submitted their entries from October 2, 2019 to November 5, 2019.

US Embassies and consulates worldwide have temporarily suspended non-emergency visa processing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

UPDATE: The official website of the DV lottery has been updated with June 6, 2020 as the new date for the release of the DV 2021 results.
