Firstly, there has been a terrible earthquake in Nepal today. Many people have lost their lives, or had their lives changed. My thoughts go out to the people of Nepal at their difficult time.

This is a quick post to publish the CEAC data extract that I have taken over the last few hours. The file includes the 2NL cases (denoted by their “in Transit” status). Mostly the in Transit cases are the new 2NLs but AS region had about 75 cases still at in Transit after the last update – i.e. not claimed by the embassy.

You will see I have also extracted the complete file – letting the extracts run until the end of the numbers in CEAC. I don’t publish this complete file every time because it takes longer to extract but it is useful to refer to it sometimes to see what cases are above the current VB numbers.

You can also see that the issued progress remains on track – with one week to go in the month it looks like they will get very close to hitting 5000 issued visas this month.

I have commitments today, so I am not going to be able to work on predictions today – I might be able to get to it later tonight.  So by publishing the data it gives a few hours chance for some that are interested to work on their own predictions. In previous posts I have explained how I come up with the predictions and there is all the data you need in the attached file. So – it will be fun to do your own predictions and if you like leave me an email or comment on what you think they will be.

Here is the data

And before you ask me to give you data on “your” embassy – it is very easy to do that yourself. So – here is how to use google sheets to analyze the data.

One more thing. If you appreciate the work I am doing in keeping you informed and assisting you through the process I would be grateful if you could read this page about the “Treehouse fund” and leave a message (which Sofia LOVES) or feel free to donate if you can afford to do so.
