DV Lottery-2012 - rezultate invalidate. Urmeaza o noua selectie.


We regret to inform you that, due to a computer programming problem, the results of the
 2012 Diversity Lottery that were previously posted on this website have been voided.
 They were not valid and were posted in error.  The results were not valid because they
 did not represent a fair, random selection of entrants, as required by U.S. law. 

If you checked this website during the first week in May and found a notice that you had
 been selected for further processing or a notice that you had not been selected, that notice
 has been rescinded and is no longer valid. 

A new selection process will be conducted based on the original entries for the 2012

If you submitted a qualified entry from October 5, 2010 to November 3, 2010, your entry
 remains with us.  It will be included in the new selection lottery.  Your confirmation number
 to check results on this website is still valid.

We expect the results of the new selection process to be available on this website on or
about July 15, 2011.

We regret any inconvenience this might have caused.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why was it necessary to invalidate the names that were selected?

  • U.S. law requires that Diversity Immigrant visas be made available through a                                               strictly random process.  A computer programming error resulted in a                                              selection that was not truly random..

  • Since the computer programming error caused an outcome that was not random, the                      outcome did not meet the requirements of the law, and would have been unfair to                               many DV entrants.

Q:  Is the 2012 Diversity Visa Program cancelled?

  • No.  The 2012 program will continue.  The computer programming error has been                            identified and corrected.  The Department of State will run a new selection using                                     all the qualified entries (ones received between October 5, 2010 and November 3,                                  2010) it received for the 2012 program. 

Q:  Do I have to submit a new application?

  • No.  You may not submit a new application.  We will use all qualified entries received                                              during the October 5 to November 3, 2010 registration period.

Q:   Will you open a new entry period?

  • New entries will not be accepted.

Q:  I checked the Entry Status Check website after May 1 and it said I had been 
selected.  Can I apply for a DV visa?

 Unfortunately results previously posted on this website were not valid because the selection
 process was not fair or random.  We will take the entries of all individuals who sent in their
 registration during the original October 5 to November 3, 2010 time period and run a new
 lottery.  We regret any inconvenience or disappointment this has caused.  We expect new
 results to be available on this website on or about July 15, 2011.

Q:  How can I check the results of the new selection?

  • The new results should be available on this website on or about July 15, 2011. 
  •  The confirmation code you received when you registered is still valid for use on the
  •  website. 

Q:  Was the Department of State hacked?  Was my personal information at risk?

  • We have no evidence that this problem was caused by any intentional act.  No                                 unauthorized party accessed data related to the DV program. 

  • This appears to be solely the result of a computer programming error.

Incredibil! Imi pare rau de cei care au iesit castigatori la prima selectie-cea anulata! Bafta
 tuturor in continuare!
