OK, the last 2NLs have been sent for September, so now we need to scrape the CEAC data to see where we are (how many visas are issued, how many are left and so on. You can watch the new video above to learn more about scraping. To get instructions – jump to the 10 minute mark.
The data is about DV2019 (not DV2020) but if some of you newbies for DV2020 could help it will lessen the workload. You will soon understand just how important this data is to understanding progress and what will happen, so please help.
Please help with the scraping effort – it is very easy and if everyone spends even an 30 minutes or an hour we would very quickly have all the data. The scraping link is here – https://dvcharts.xarthisius.xyz/scraping.html

so just wondering, Nepal will loose around 1600 visas, only 2K visas have been issued?
August 3, 2019 at 00:27
No. First they are not “losing” anything since nothing is allocated to each country.
Next the year is not over.
Third there could be Nepali cases outside of KDU embassy.
August 3, 2019 at 12:25
Dear Brit. Did second letter for 2020 have been issued or not.
August 3, 2019 at 15:48
Of course not.

In albania till cn1500 has been sent the 2nl. And also wanted to point out that in albania there are very high cn. People claim they have cn 64k and also 73k.
August 8, 2019 at 21:35
Lorena, this high numbers are for D2019 or DV2020?
August 10, 2019 at 21:11
August 8, 2019 at 22:02
That is not the 2NL that people have been sent. It’s the documents request.
August 10, 2019 at 21:12
Than what is the difference because i thought this was the 2nl.
August 10, 2019 at 21:22
I find it at faq the difference. Thank you

Almost. DV2019 interviews will continue until the end of September, but at this point almost no new interviews will be scheduled.

Contact the embassy.

I would like to thank you so much for all the hard work in helping people. We know that DV2019 was probably the most stressful situation to deal with because of the previows year experience, but it became much easier because of the time you dedicated it, your patience your speed at predicting things.
You gave people a lot of good advice at the right time such as to send documents fast in order to recieve an interview.
We express our Thanks & Gratitude for your timely advice & cooperation in making our immigration successful.
It was a challenge to do the scraping but at the same time we were thirsty for information because we wanted to know in advance what to expect.
We got our visas in July but I wanted to finish every bit of scraping so everyone could get the precious information You and Xarthisius share with other people.
Thank you very much again for the great help we recieved from you.
God bless you and your family.
August 6, 2019 at 20:25
You took on WAY more than your share of the scraping – so thank you VERY much for that incredible effort.
I’ll be posting some videos soon about starting life in the USA – I hope they will be useful for you too in your move. Best of luck!

I have been trying for several days to scrap some data but seems that is not working and keep getting “Your search did not return any data.”
Note that I have scrapped before, so not sure if there is something wrong with the website or the script. I also tried updating the script but I am using the latest.
October 14, 2019 at 17:46
Keep trying – I appreciate the help – I’ll speak to Xarthisius.
October 20, 2019 at 13:23
Unfortunately it is still not working. I have tried using two PCs and both Chrome and Firefox, still getting “Your search did not return any data” error.
Not sure if I am the only one having this issue, but the scrapping number has not moved in a while and is stuck at 6655.
May 26, 2023 at 11:49
Hello Brit, not so sure you’ll see this from this older video. Is this still functioning? I noticed I coudln’t find the script even though I found the chrome extension, tampermonkey. If yes, when is the right day of the week to scrape? or when is the data updated weekly? (I posted on the youtube video comment too, so whichever is seen first, that’ll be alright)
May 27, 2023 at 11:10
No need to help with scraping now – we have managed to overcome their countermeasures programmatically.
May 29, 2023 at 00:39
Awesome! That’s just brilliant.
