Diversity Visas: Delayed Opening of the DV-2021 Entrant Status Check

  • The Department is postponing the opening of the Entrant Status Check for DV-2021 applicants from May 5 to June 6, 2020.
  • The Department’s resources are currently being used in its role in the COVID-19 pandemic response and are being prioritized for the assistance to U.S. citizens overseas.
  • The delayed opening will not negatively impact our ability to pre-process and schedule DV-2021 interviews, which are scheduled to begin on October 1, 2020. The Department of State takes seriously our role in administering the Diversity Visa Program in accordance with all laws and regulations.
