DV-2021 Lottery Results Postponed!

(Note: This article (published APRIL 2020) concerned the results released in 2020, and NOT the one expected in May 2021.  For insights into this year’s (May 2021) results, CLICK HERE.)


You may have probably gathered over the past couple of weeks that the DV-2021 Results, scheduled to be released on May 5, 2020, had been postponed to June 6, 2020.

This revelation is said to have been made by the official Twitter account of the U. S. States Department.


However, couple of weeks on, information on the official DV website (dvprogram.state.gov) still maintained May 5 as the date of release of the upcoming results. This created confusion in the minds of DV-2021 hopefuls and other interested persons who always look to the DV website as the source of infallible DV information. And during that same period, there was no confirmation of the postponement by any other means on the part the State Department.


But all that has changed. Within the last few hours, the official Diversity Visa program website, which had initially pointed everyone to May 5, has finally updated its information.

It is therefore officially confirmed: the DV 2021 Lottery results will no longer be released on next Tuesday, May 5. Instead, it will now be released on Saturday, June 6, 2020.

    1. Yes, you can – by way of the DV program. But you first have to enter and win the Lottery, then apply for a Diversity visa and finally succeed at the interview before immigrating to the U.S. It’s a whole process, Kea.
