Computer Glitch Affects 2012 Diversity Lottery Results

Posted on May 13th, 2011, by Jennifer Varughese in Immigration Law. Comments Off on Computer Glitch Affects 2012 Diversity Lottery Results

Today, the U.S. Department of State issued a notice that, due to a computer glitch, the 2012 Diversity Visa Lottery results have been voided. The results, according to the DOS, did not represent a truly random selection of applicants. Individuals who were selected as early as May 2011 will have to revisit the website starting July 15, 2011 for the new lottery results. No further applications are necessary if applicants initially filed between October 5, 2010 and November 3, 2010.
