2012 Diversity Visa Program Candidates Selected

As of noon EST on July 15, 2011, the Department of State has posted the new results of the DV-2012 random selection process on the website.  The results will be available through June 30, 2012.  The Department conducted the new selection process using the original entries for the DV-2012 program.  The new drawing included all qualified entries submitted from October 5, 2010 to November 3, 2010.

The confirmation numbers originally provided to those who submitted entries remain valid for use on the Entry Status Check website.

Please remember that the results of the initial DV-2012 Lottery were voided in May 2011. We rescinded all notices informing entrants that they had been selected for further processing in DV-2012; if you received such a notice previously via ESC on, it is no longer valid.  Please check the website now to determine your status.
