Diversity Visa lottery results for fiscal year 2019 will be available Tuesday on the State Department’s Entrant Status Check webpage.
The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program allots 50,000 green cards per year to individuals from countries with historically low levels of immigration to the U.S. Entries for fiscal year 2019 were accepted from Oct. 18, 2017 to Nov. 22, 2017.
Key dates and procedures:
BAL Analysis: Applicants are reminded that the State Department’s Entrant Status Check webpage is the only official source where results are posted. They must use the official website to find out if they have been selected in the lottery and, if selected, to check for the date of their immigrant visa appointment, as the U.S. government does not directly notify winners. The State Department also instructs individuals to retain their confirmation number until at least Sept. 30, 2018. Confirmation numbers from the Oct. 3-10, 2017, registration period are not valid in the system and lottery participants should confirm that they are using a valid confirmation number from the Oct. 18-Nov. 22 registration period.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice group. For additional information, please contact email@example.com.
