It was detailed that the official tool of the department is the only way to know who was the winner, since there will be no emails or other documents.
The same office’s website has already enabled its DV Entrant Status Check function , available for searching the status of each applicant. Only the data of the unique confirmation saved in your entry record DV-2023 should be entered , with a click on the blue button titled Check Status . This tool is the only means by which participants will be notified if they have been selected.
