When you check your entry status on the E-DV (electronic diversity visa) website, you will receive a message letting you know if your entry was or was not selected for further processing for the diversity visa.

This is the message you will receive if your entry was not selected for further processing:

Based on the information provided, the Entry HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED for further processing for the Electronic Diversity Visa Program.

If you receive this message, you were not selected for this year's green card lottery, but you can always try again next year!

This is the message you will receive if your entry was selected for further processing:

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 lottery.

If you have not received your selectee letter, please do not contact KCC until after August 1. International mail delivery delays of one month or more are normal. KCC will not respond to questions they receive before August 1 regarding non-receipt of selectee letters. If you still have not received your selectee letter by August 1, however, you may contact KCC by email at kccdv@state.gov.

If you receive this message, you were selected for this year's green card lottery.

Congratulations!

You can see what each of these messages looks like on the Department of State website.
