US DV Lottery Results of Nepal for 2012 - 2013

The result of the DV lottery has been announced recently. To look at the results of the DV lottery each expecting candidate must go to the official website of the US State Department: http://dvlottery.state.gov. Or you can click here to go the website. There no point in wasting time searching for your names in the local blogs and website. And the expecting candidates need to be aware of the scams involved in cheating the applicants.
There have been some names listed in some websites around (see below list) but this should not be taken as true unless the names are confirmed by the US State Department website.

Last years DV result news

US annuls 2012 DV lottery results
The KATHMANDU Post, MAY 14 -
It’s  bad news for those who had thought they had been selected in the Diversity Visa-2012 programme. The US State Department announced that it has cancelled the results as a computer programme failed to make a random selection from among millions of applicants.  
The US State Department said the results that were previously posted on the website — http://dvlottery.state.gov — are not valid, they were posted erroneously.
In the first week of May, around 22,000 people, including Nepali applicants, were told that they had been selected. The US State Department said a new selection process will be conducted based on original entries.
“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,” read the US official website. “Results of the new selection process should be available on this website on or about July 15, 2011.We regret any inconvenience this might have caused.”
Set up in 1994, the lottery is carried out by an electronic random selection.
For 2012, at least 100,000 hopefuls were due to be chosen from among the 14.7 million applicants, comprising a total of 19.6 million people when family members are included.
The 100,000 then can apply for one of the 50,000 visas, with authorities leaving room for those who drop out of the process, or are rejected by immigration.

Warning against fraud (read the news, what the victims and officials have to say)

Fake DV racket fleeces gullible of hefty sums


Binod Ghimire KATHMANDU, AUG 23 -
Nawalparasi’s Gaindakot resident and +2 teacher Arun Karki’s happiness knew no bounds when he got an e-mail saying he had been selected for the Diversity Visa (DV) via lottery. The two-page notification telling him that he was one of 50,000 winners from across the globe among millions of applicants, led him to dream about a cushy life in the United States. The letter asked him to transfer US$ 989.67 for taking the process further. Wisely, Karki refrained from doing so. After enquiry, he found that the letter was fake.
Prakash Sharma (named changed) of Jhapa also received a similar e-mail asking him to deposit US$ 989.67 to process his case. However, his gut instinct saved him. On the other hand, there is no dearth of those who fall hook, line and sinker for the fake email. No sooner does the US government publish the annual DV lottery result than hundreds of people start getting fake e-mails asking for money.
“I found even my colleagues had received similar mails,” said Karki, who is a lecturer at a local college.
Police say no complain has been filed regarding the issue but added that they are holding consultations with experts from the field to control such fraud. “No formal complaint has been filed with us. However, we learnt about the problem through informal channels and are working to nail the culprits,” SP Kedar Rijal Chief of Metropolitan Police Range Kathmandu, adding the best way to avoid getting conned is to be wary of such fraud.
Most of the fake mails press for sending money through Money Gram to an individual in England, though the ISP addresses most of the time indicate that the emails originated in Nigeria. Unlike the fake lottery notifications that usually ask for the payment within seven days, the real lottery doesn’t ask winners to make an upfront payment.
“The thing to remember is that the DV lottery notifications are not sent by email, and the emails that say you have won a DV are not legitimate,” said Heather Steil, Public Information Officer at the US embassy here. “The only way people can ascertain their status is by visiting the US State Department website.” [Source:  http://www.ekantipur.com/2011/08/23/top-story/fake-dv-racket-fleeces-gullible-of-hefty-sums/339560.html]


Extra Information
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE 2013 DIVERSITY IMMIGRANT VISA PROGRAM (DV-2013)
This document can be directly downloaded from US State Department Website

The congressionally mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is administered on an annual basis by the Departmentof State and conducted based on United States law, specifically Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). This law provides for a class of immigrants known as ―diversity immigrants, with visas made available to persons from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States. For fiscal year 2013, 50,000 diversity visas will be available.
The annual DV program makes visas available to persons meeting simple, but strict, eligibility requirements.  A computergenerated, random drawing chooses selectees for DVs.  The visas are distributed among six geographic regions, and within each region, no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year.  Visas are allocated to nationals of countries with historically lower rates of U.S. immigration.  Nationals of countries who have sent more than 50,000 immigrants to the United States over the past five years are not eligible to apply for the Diversity Visa program.
