DV-2011 Green Card Lottery Status Check

DV-2011 green card lottery entrants can now check the status of their applications online.

To use the Entrant Status Check (ESC) Web site, you need to have your Submission Confirmation ready. The confirmation page was displayed when you successfully submitted your Diversity Visa (DV) lottery entry. More specifically, it contained your Entrant Confirmation Number, Last/Family Name (or blank if none), and Year of Birth. You must have this information in order to log into the website and check the status of your entry.

Your confirmation number should be 16 characters long, and start with 2011. For example: 20112O0DZWY3DOV9. Be sure to differentiate the letter O and number 0 (zero) when you enter it.

If the information you entered matches DOS record, you will be presented with an Authentication Code. Enter this code in the text field and click Submit. If you cannot recognize all characters, you may click the speaker symbol and hear an audio clip of the code, or refresh it to try a new one. Your status will be displayed after the authorization step.

If your entry was NOT selected, you should see a message like the one below:

“Based on the information provided, the Entry HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED for further processing for the 2011 Electronic Diversity Visa program …”

If your entry was selected for further processing, the status will be:

“Based on the information and confirmation number provided, you should have received a letter by mail from the United States Department of State’s Kentucky Consular Center (KCC) notifying you that your Diversity Visa entry was selected in the DV-2011 lottery.

If you have not yet received your selectee letter, please do not contact KCC until after August 1, 2010…”

If you still have not received the notification letter in the mail by August 1, 2010, and the website indicated that your entry was selected, you should contact KCC at kccdv@state.gov.

    If you confirmed your DV winning status at the DOS website, and completed further instructions which indicated that you should expect something in the mail, then it is real.

    The U.S. government doesn’t send emails to notify winners. If the email you received also asked for money, it is certainly scam. The only way to check if you’re a DV lottery winner is through the official online status checking system, which requires your confirmation number.

    @haki,
    Since you have your confirmation #, you can simply go to the Department of State website to check your status. The email you received doesn’t count and is very likely scam.
