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that you had been selected for further processing or a notice that you had not been selected, that notice has been rescinded and is no longer valid.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 program.


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.

 WASHINGTON – The State Department says its annual worldwide lottery for U.S. immigration visas was corrupted by a computer glitch and the results will be scratched, disappointing tens of thousands of would-be immigrants who were notified this year that they had won a chance to come and live legally in the United States.

A department official said Friday the software glitch caused the drawing to select 90 percent of winners from entries submitted on only the first two days of the 30-day registration period that ended Nov. 3. The official said the problem has been fixed. A new lottery will be held with winners announced on July 15.

Nearly 15 million people had entered the lottery, which allows 50,000 entrants a year to apply for immigrant visas without a sponsor.

Watch the video (link below). This is not fake :-)
