What is the case number for DV? Can you win DV lottery twice?


The case number for the Diversity Visa (DV) lottery is a unique number that is assigned to each selected applicant after the Department of State conducts the random lottery selection process. The case number is used to track the applicant’s case throughout the visa application process.

The case number consists of 14 characters and is made up of the fiscal year of the lottery (two digits), the letter “DV,” and a unique six-digit number. For example, the case number for a DV lottery winner in fiscal year 2023 might look like this: 2023DV123456.


It’s important to keep your case number safe and secure, as you will need it to check the status of your visa application and to communicate with the U.S. Department of State about your case.
