A new result has been released for the 2012 American Diversity Visa Lottery for those who applied last year. The original result, which was released on May 1, was canceled due to non-random selection and computer programming problem. The new result was released today, July 15, for applicants to check their status here:
“The results were not valid because they did not represent a fair, random selection of entrant, as required by U.S. law,” said David Donahue, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Visa Services. “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that you had been selected for further processing or a notice that you had not been selected, that notice has been rescinded and is no longer valid,” he said.
After proper review, the new result has been released. Beginning today, entrants from last year’s calendar year 2010 diversity visa lottery (DV-2012) can check on-line to see if they won through this link:
