The Department of State is postponing the opening of the Entrant Status Check for the DV-2021 applicants from May 5 to June 6, 2020. The Department’s resources are currently being used in our role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and are prioritized for the assistance to U.S. citizens overseas. The delayed opening will not negatively impact our ability to pre-process and schedule DV-2021 interviews, which are scheduled to begin on October 1, 2020. The Department takes seriously our role in administering the Diversity Visa Program in accordance with all laws and regulations.
