This visa bulletin covers June interviews.
For those that are current, and have forms processed early enough, they can expect their 2NL in about 2 weeks from now. I know I am going to get a lot of people who will ask me this exact question – so let me say that again. 2NLs for June interviews will be sent in about two weeks time. They will include interviews for cases that have been made current in this latest visa bulletin AND backlog cases that were already current last month but the DS260 was submitted late.
The backlog seems to be massively reduced now so progress from now on can be largely due to new VB numbers, not backlog.
Read this link if you are unsure how to read the visa bulletin.

**** About EU and OC regions ****
The numbers published for EU and OC are somewhat ridiculous. In EU the highest case number in CEAC is 24517. I have been looking for new cases in CEAC since the VB last month, but there are still NO CASES between 24517 and 28000. Same story in OC – highest number is 959. It seems like KCC are avoiding giving the impression that EU and OC have gone current while other regions are still going through the process. Why would they do that? Well I can only imagine it is to avoid numerous questions from regions still limited about allocating wasted visas from EU and OC to the other regions. There is a tiny (and reducing) chance that they could release some additional winners in EU and OC, but as of now there is NO evidence to support that hypothesis, including no extra cases in CEAC, and it is quite late in the year to inform more winners. Please Note – this would ONLY affect EU and OC, it would make no sense to release more winners in AF, AS and SA regions since there are already enough (too many) winners in those regions.
If you want to check how close these numbers are to my predictions, please check here. Happily all three regions that are “real” are exactly in my predicted ranges.
