EDV result 2020

The result of the Electronic Diversity Visa (EDV) 2020 was published on Tuesday. Those who have applied for the United States government lottery program between October 3, 2018, to November 6, 2018, can check their results on the official website of the state government.

Here is how to check the EDV lottery results for 2020.

First and foremost, you must have the confirmation number issued to you when you applied for the lottery program to check the entry status.

Check the result via Entrant Status Check (official website https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/ESC/) between May 7, 2019, to September 30, 2020, to determine whether your entry was further selected for the further processing in the 2020 Diversity Visa Lottery. You will be required to enter your confirmation number in combination with other personal information in order to check your entry status.

After you open the website, you can check your status. (If the website does not open, it might be because the server is busy or crashed)

Click the Check status button.

Then you will be asked to enter Entrant Information, where you will need to fill your confirmation number, Last/Family name and year of birth. Then you have to enter CAPTCHA code or characters given in the picture. Once you have filled the information, recheck them. Then click submit.

(The 16-digit confirmation number can be found in the DV-2020 Submission Confirmation: Entry Received from you that you received after you applied for the lottery program.)

(The Last/Family Name and year of birth can be found in the Entrant Name (in the form you received)

After you have clicked on submit button, you will receive notification whether you have been selected or not for the lottery program.

The lottery winners immigrate through consular processing and issuance of an immigrant visa.

Good Luck.
