I know I shouldn't be. But I'm nervous.
After checking the website twice a day since 15th of the month when it was supposed to be updated, U.S. Visa Bulletin
was published yesterday. It says:
For March, immigrant numbers in the DV category are available to qualified DV-2004 applicants chargeable to all regions/eligible countries as follows. When an allocation cut-off number is shown, visas are available only for applicants with DV regional lottery rank numbers BELOW the specified allocation cut-off number:
All DV Chargeability Areas Except Those Listed Separately.
AFRICA: AF 23,200 Except: Ethiopia 21,900, Nigeria 16,475
ASIA: AS 10,500 Except: Bangladesh 6,940
EUROPE: EU 17,800
NORTH AMERICA (BAHAMAS): 13
OCEANIA: OC 685
SOUTH AMERICA, and the CARIBBEAN: SA 1,400
Some facts are:
- Cut-off numbers for February were so:
AFRICA: AF 20,400 Except: Ethiopia 18,600, Nigeria 15,400
ASIA: AS 9,225 Except: Bangladesh 5,900
EUROPE: EU 15,600
NORTH AMERICA (BAHAMAS): 11
OCEANIA: OC 600
SOUTH AMERICA, and the CARIBBEAN: 1,250
- Avilable number of visas are 55,000.
- The rank number doesn't increase separately for different regions.
- My rank number is AS 32,***.
I shouldn't worry about it to much. I may have an interview 6-7 months later or I'll find another way to get out of here. :)
