Sadly, it looks like the government are stopping all issuances for the DV2023 program. All the visas are issued, they have actually exceeded the cap by about the same as last year – it will be some time before we get the final number.

Dept of State made this announcement yesterday

And now it is morning time and already people arriving at embassies are being turned away without interviews. So far this has happened in 4 embassies – Kathmandu, Tashkent, Yerevan and Nairobi.

So – unless you have your visas issued before now, you will unfortunately lose your chance. That will be the same for scheduled interviews, 221g, and AOS cases.
