INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE 2023 DIVERSITY IMMIGRANT VISA PROGRAM (DV2023) Program Overview
The Department of State annually administers the statutorily created Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides for a class of immigrants known as “diversity immigrants” from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States. For Fiscal Year 2023, up to 55,000 Diversity Visas (DVs) will be available. There is no cost to register for the DV program.
Selection of Entries
Based on the allocations of available visas in each region and country, the Department of
State will randomly select individuals by computer from among qualified entries. All DV2023 entrants must go to the Entrant Status Check using the unique confirmation number saved from their DV-2023 online entry registration to find out whether their entry has
been selected in the DV program. Entrant Status Check will be available on the E-DV website at dvprogram.state.gov from May 8, 2022, through at least September 30,2023.
If your entry is selected, you will be directed to a confirmation page providing further instructions, including information about fees connected with immigration to the United States. Entrant Status Check will be the ONLY means by which the Department of State notifies selectees of their selection for DV-2023. The Department of State will not mail notification letters or notify selectees by email. U.S. embassies and consulates will not provide a list of selectees. Individuals who have not been selected also ONLY will be notified through Entrant Status Check. You are strongly encouraged to access EntrantStatus Check yourself. Do not rely on someone else to check and inform you.
