If you did not win the green card, it is important to know that not everyone who won can usually go through the full range of procedures, the US State Department over time adds new lucky ones and possible green card holders.
Therefore, even if you have now received a notification that you have not been selected, you can later check your result again - data may change.
How to check the results of previous draws
You can check your status only on the official website www.dvprogram.state.gov (it was previously called www.dvlottery.state.gov - both addresses are correct). On the site, you need to enter the lottery participant number, indicate the name, surname and year of birth of the applicant. If on the opened page you see a letter with a barcode and your data, you won.
However, before receiving the coveted green card, you need to go through several more stages as quickly as possible, about which we wrote earlier.
This is the only way to find out about the lottery results. The Department of State will not send any emails or letters. The only email you can receive from the US Department of State is a reminder to check your status after the lottery draw. And even more so, an official institution never asks to make money transfers. Be especially careful in this if you applied through an intermediary.
