DV-2012 Results Invalidated! New Hope for All Participants

In an unprecedented decision, the Department of State has invalidated the DV-2012 Lottery results.  Here is the official announcement:


The Assistant Secretary of State for Visa Services confirmed what was pointed out in earlier blogs and our letter to the Visa Office – that the Lottery was not random because the overwhelming majority (90%) selected were those who submitted entries on October 5th and 6th, thereby violating one of the requirements of the Lottery.

As a result, a new Lottery will be conducted, with all entries submitted during the October 5-November 3 timeframe being eligible.  Unfortunately, for those who “won” – they are no longer winners.  However, they will have another chance to be selected.

The winners will be announced on or about July 15, 2011.

Stay tuned…
