電腦凸槌 抽中綠卡?2.2萬人空歡喜
最近全球約二萬二千人以為抽到了美國移民簽證,不過只是空歡喜一場。
     美國國務院十三日宣布,這次抽籤結果係電腦錯誤造成,因此必須作廢重抽,並對造成不便或失望表示「誠摰致歉」。
     美國政府自一九九四年推出「多元移民簽證(即綠卡)抽籤」(Diversity Immigration Visa Lottery,DV),每年提供約五萬多個名額給移民美國較少的國家人民抽籤,目前完全透過線上申請,初步由電腦隨機抽出約九萬名,經過面試會刷掉一部 分,最後約五萬多人可拿到移民簽證。
     二○一二年的DV係於二○一○年十月五日至十一月三日開放線上申請,申請筆數達一千四百七十萬,抽籤結果五月一日開始公布在網路,但國務院到五月五日才發現,約九成中籤者都是在頭兩天登記的,顯然電腦發生錯誤。

     但已有一百九十萬人上網查看結果,其中約二萬二千人被告知中籤。這些人想必興高采烈,沒想到被國務院擺了大烏龍。國務院說,電腦問題已經修好,接下來將重新抽籤,結果可望在七月十五左右公布。
     台灣亦可參加美國DV計劃,最近幾年台灣每年都有三、四百人抽中。2011-05-15 中國時報 【尹德瀚/綜合報導】

**IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE 2012 DIVERSITY LOTTERY PROGRAM**
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.

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.
