DV-2016 Entrants can go the U.S. State Department https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/ now and check their results by entering their confirmation information on that site. Entrants should hold on to their confirmation number until at least June 30, 2016.
The U.S. State Department will never send any notification letter or any information regarding acceptance to an Entrant other than reminding them to go to the official website. Do not send any money or information in response to any emails requesting these things.
An Entrant will only get email(s) from the U.S. State Department after the Entrant entered the designated website and completed the registration process (if accepted). Those emails will only tell the Entrant that appointment details are available and must be accessed through the website.
Make sure that the website that the Entrant goes to has a ".gov" domain suffix, NOT ".com," ".org," or ".net".
