Process after file number is released

I have received a file number today for my application. Does this mean that the chances of elimination are over?? Or is there a stage where in the future the visa might get rejected??

Please let me know.



So you made through the lottery if you have received EAC or WAC number. However, the petition may still be denied, which will put you out of lottery.

Also, you have to appear for visa stamping later, which can also be denied based upon the specific case.
