Selected applicants for the Diversity Visa program will be required to pay $330 USD in person only at their interview at the U.S. Embassy beginning October 1, 2015.

Diversity Visa applicants must check their status online, and will not receive a notification letter, email, or phone call from the U.S. government. DV Entry Status Check will only be provided through the Department of State secure online site, http://www.dvlottery.state.gov.
