NEW!!! – For All Successful DV Entrants & Instructions for Selectees

Important Notice

On May 1, 2014, the Entrance Status Check (ESC) website experienced a brief technical problem. As a result, some people who logged into the site to check the status of their Diversity Visa 2015 (DV-2015) entries were shown the wrong information. Applicants who logged into the ESC website on May 1 and saw a notice of selection that did not include their name, or saw a notice that they were not selected, must re-check their status. Applicants must see a notice addressed to them by name as proof of selection to process further in the DV-2015 program.
