DV-2018 Visa Bulletin.

Visa Bulletin pages are published by the U.S State Department every month for the benefit of the American visa applicants. In this bulletin you can find many useful information if you are one of the U.S visa applicant. It is good for those DV-2018 visa lotttery winners of the last held USA diversity visa program.

Dateline.

Interviews started on 01st October 2017.
Program will close on 30th September 2018.

In this visa bulletin there is a special section published for the DV winners who are looking for their visa interview dates. This helps the selected winners to proceed with their winnings as per their birth region. Cases numbers of the current DV program are published with cut out numbers for the next coming months. So the winners with the case numbers under the cut out numbers can expect that their case numbers will be current in those months and those winners can expect to receive the second letter for the interview in these months normally 4/6 weeks prior to their interview dates.

In the main visa bulletin section in the U.S State Department website there used to be current visa bulletin, last published one and the archives of many visa bulletins from previous months to the past years too. Usually the visa bulletins are published in the first week of every month in the American Government's official website.

The DV lottery interviews used to start in the month of October and finish in the month of September next year, you must check within these months in the current fiscal year visa bulletin. Cut out numbers of the case numbers that are going to be current for the 6 regions will be published separately every month. Also in the visa bulletin some countries in the Africa region will have their own case numbers as cut out numbers. Some European countries too get them in separate field with their case numbers that are going to be current in the coming months.

After the month of July many regions sector will show as current. That means no new numbers will be called for the DV Lottery interview for that fiscal year as the allocated visas are exhausted. So those who are with case numbers those are higher than the current numbers must consider themselves as unlucky and can try for the next visa lottery program to get an American visa through the online visa lottery program.

Those who are living in the USA and had been selected as winners for the DV-2018 must check this visa bulletin according to their region and when it becomes current they can contact the USCIS office to submit their application to change their current status to the American LPR status.

Visa bulletin for the month of September had been already published for the benefit of DV-2017 American green card lottery winners in the American Government website. Visa bulletin for the DV-2018 will be published from the month of August 2017.
