Starting May 8, 2022, you will be able to check the status of your entry by returning to https://dvprogram.state.gov/, clicking on Entrant Status Check, and entering your unique confirmation number and personal information.

As a reminder, due to the suspension of immigrant visa services at the U.S. Embassy in Havana, Cuba, the U.S. Department of State has designated the U.S. Embassy in Georgetown, Guyana as the primary site to process immigrant visas for residents of Cuba.
