The results of the green card lottery for 2022 can be checked from May 8, from 12:00 (DV-2022). The information will be available until September 30, 2022.
You can check your status only on the official website www.dvprogram.state.gov. In order to do this, 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.
It should be borne in mind that 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. In connection with the green card lotteries, many scammers have appeared who fraudulently receive money from applicants. An official institution never asks for money transfers. Be especially careful in this if you applied through an intermediary.
It is worth remembering that winning the lottery does not guarantee that you will receive a green card. To immigrate to the United States, you must meet all the requirements that apply to immigrant visa applicants.
If you are already in the United States at the time of receiving the notification of winning a green card, you have the opportunity to change your status in the United States to immigration. You can find out more about this on the official website of the program.
A green card is an identity card of a permanent resident of the United States who does not have the citizenship of this state. It, among other things, gives the right to work, educational benefits and the ability to apply for citizenship.
