This is interesting. This morning I received a message from a reader called Fayola who had contacted KCC and been sent what appears to be the DV lottery section of the next Visa bulletin. I would normally treat this with caution, unless I have some way to corroborate it with another source. However, I have had some people (three I believe) that have asked to unlock their cases and KCC have said no because their case is already current for scheduling. This is common when the VB number has been released – but up until now I have never heard that before the VB was actually released. Then – this month – I have heard of three such cases. So – it *is* possible that KCC are indeed working from the set of numbers below – and that these might well be the numbers we will see released in a few days.
Please understand that these are not “official” until we see them in the published VB – but the format is accurate, so I am inclined to “trust” this information. KCC could *of course* change these numbers, but with that said, have a look a the numbers and then read my comments below the VB.
For October, immigrant numbers in the DV category are available to qualified DV-2018 applicants chargeable to all regions/eligible countries as follows. When an allocation cut-off number is shown, visas are available only for applicants with DV regional lottery rank numbers BELOW the specified allocation cut-off number:
AFRICA: 8,500 Except: Egypt 2,350
ASIA: 1,200 Except: Iran 750
NORTH AMERICA: 2
SOUTH AMERICA: 190
The Visa Bulletin at http://www.travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/law-and-policy/bulletin.html is updated monthly and contains the current allocation cut-off numbers as well as other important information.
Interviews for the DV 2018 program will begin in October 2017 and will conclude on September 30, 2018. KCC cannot provide information as to when an interview date may become available for your case. Interviews are scheduled numerically according to assigned case numbers which have completed processing. The Department of State designates how many interviews will be scheduled each month according to visa availability. You may refer to the visa bulletin at http://www.travel.state.gov for the list of current numbers. This information is updated on the 15th day of each month thereafter.
OK – now for some comments.
These numbers are surprisingly low compared to other recent years. Having said that, these numbers seem sensible *IF* there are no DS260 “backlogs”.
Let me explain. The backlog is a term I use to describe a case where many DS260s are waiting to be processed. Many people submit their DS260s in the first few days after results are announced, and KCC can’t process those submissions fast enough, so a “backlog” develops – meaning cases waiting in queue for processing.
Normally the first few VBs of the year have higher numbers – because the backlog means KCC have to have a high number to get the number of interviews they need, due to delays in processing the flood of DS260s submitted in the early days after the results are announced. If these numbers are correct it shows they have yielded enough processed cases from these low numbers to fill the interview slots available in October. If that is correct, it means one of the following:
- DS260 processing throughput has been massively increased, meaning little or no backlog.
- KCC have found a way to prioritize DS260 processing based on submission date AND case number. That would be a smart move if they have been able to do that.
To explain – since the introduction of the DS260, we have seen processing backlogs for the first few months of the year. If someone with a case number like 2018AF45XXX submitted their DS260 in the first few days in May, that DS260 would be processed (background checks) before lower case numbers submitted days or weeks later, even though the high case number could not be interviewed early. So – if 2018AF1XXX were submitted in June or July – that case would not able to be interviewed in October, because there would be a backlog of cases to process based on earlier submissions. That was wasteful and frustrating – because the later case numbers (like 2018AF45XXX ) would have to wait until they were current – so their rapid processing was pointless. KCC might have found a way to prioritize the processing early case numbers. This is just a guess, but I hope that it is correct! To the “ladies of KCC” – please feel free to let me know if I am wrong or right!!! 🙂
Now – this has the effect of reducing the VB number because if a higher percentage of cases in the first numbers are ready for interviews, KCC can set the VB number at lower levels and still get enough interviews to meet the embassy capacity.
With all that explained – these numbers are pretty much what I would expect if most cases were ready for scheduling. The countries that specially slowed (Nepal, Iran, Egypt and Ethiopia), all have so many selectees in the early number ranges that they are slowed down for processing.
For instance, Nepal will have about 40% of the early numbers – so out of the first 750 case numbers about 300 will be Nepalese cases. Each case has the selectee and the derivatives of that person – so 300 cases would be about 500 people. NOt ALL of the 300 cases would be ready for interview, but the Nepal embassy can probably handle about 200 to 250 DV interviews in a month. So – limiting the VB to 750 is about what I would expect. The same calculation technique (although not at 40%) could be applied to the other countries limited in this way.
I hope that explains and helps people understand the process a little better.
Lastly, thanks to Fayola for forwarding this to me so I could pass on this information to my readers.
August 6, 2017 at 20:15
Why people should still keep their number till next year if they already chose the winners??
August 6, 2017 at 21:04
In some years there is a small second draw. But not this year.
August 9, 2017 at 16:46
We should just forget and try next time
August 6, 2017 at 21:44
IF there is such situation, does it influence final cut numbers of DV2018?
August 6, 2017 at 21:47
August 7, 2017 at 01:26
May i know how much money can take per person when going to usa after get dv visa. Thanks.
August 7, 2017 at 02:38
$10,000 in cash, but you can transfer any amount.
September 7, 2017 at 16:38
Does child have the same limit ?
A family of father mothet and years child can take 30 thousands Cash ?
September 7, 2017 at 17:11
That would be a very bad idea!
October 11, 2017 at 02:34
$10,000 ?? for what exactly
and in case we don’t have this ammount of money what should we do?
October 11, 2017 at 03:45
What are you talking about? Public charge or carrying cash?
August 7, 2017 at 04:17
Thank you Brits, I am from Ethiopia I understand the case numbers choosen for
October interview (2100) this much number is added each month up to Sep. 2018 or the case number is vary? If this rate is as it is what is the last cut off number for this country for DVD 2018?
August 7, 2017 at 04:34
The numbers will vary each month. I don’t know the final numbers. No one does.
August 7, 2017 at 05:47
Thank you !
August 7, 2017 at 06:30
Hey David I guess ur from Ethiopia text me ur email adress so that we can share information
August 7, 2017 at 07:25
hi Selam i am also from Ethiopia and my CN81xx and mu mail address [email protected] so we can also share information.
August 9, 2017 at 12:43
Hi Selam yes, I am from Ethiopia my email address is : [email protected]
We share the information what we have. As a chance my CN is near to yours. Thank you.
August 7, 2017 at 14:33
Hey dev that’s also my worry but the main thing is the maximum number of DV allocated for each country shouldn’t be above 7%, which is 3500 and for DV 2018 more than 4000 entries are selected,so the final cut off depends on the distribution of the selected numbers and success rate of the visa interview.
August 9, 2017 at 12:48
I hope they increase the number in the second interview from the past experience.
August 7, 2017 at 05:43
Hey Brit i havent submitted my Ds260 forms yet but i ll do it today my case number is 3500.Do you think i am too late for the first call ?
August 7, 2017 at 06:22
Yes. But that is no problem.
August 7, 2017 at 07:44
hope i dont have to wait until january 2018 🙁 Thanks for the reply
August 7, 2017 at 06:50
Thanks for the info for your followers/readers
1,in your note you said ;KCC might have found a way to prioritize the processing early case numbers so my case number is AF21XXXX and send the form DS260 on June; thus I might get notification in between September up to November ??
2 what is the exact time of releasing each month visa bulletin by KCC?
August 7, 2017 at 12:25
1. Once your case number is current.
2. THe 8th to the 15th of each month.
August 7, 2017 at 07:56
According to this insight, would a CN EU8xxx, submitted in May 16 and unlocked once in June 21 have a chance for an interview in January? Do you think me unlocking it in June can influence the interview date? The interview date is important to us as we need to apply for a waiver and that would take at least 6 months to get approved. And it can only be submitted after the interview.
August 7, 2017 at 12:23
January or sooner.
August 7, 2017 at 12:29
Thank you, I appreciate it. But still, we’ll have to wait for another two weeks to see if those numbers match. I hope they don’t, the EU numbers are too low… way too low!
August 7, 2017 at 08:39
Am from Kenya 2018AF80xx,I submitted ds 260 on early July.Will I be called for interview on October or I was late?

he contact the embassy and CO told him its already late to have another visa . he also dont remember visa number and passport number.
August 7, 2017 at 12:37
Well KCC can’t help.
August 7, 2017 at 12:31
Hello BritSimon. My case number is 2018EU35XXX. Considering the low cutoff number mentioned above for Europe, do you think I have chances of [ever] being scheduled for an interview? Thank you!
August 7, 2017 at 12:38
August 7, 2017 at 15:55
Thank you! One more question, if I may.. on the Online Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration Application (ds260) print application, in the upper part it says “Application – Sensitive but Unclasified”… what does it mean?
August 7, 2017 at 16:17
It is just standard wording regarding the document – not you. Ignore it.
August 9, 2017 at 05:17
Hi Lavinia, our case #’s are very close, Stay in touch.
August 7, 2017 at 13:50
I think that Europe will get it Most Visas Western Europe………. 🙂
Follow the situation Trump Tumi has announced he does not want any more immigrants from Africa. Russia has sanctions
August 7, 2017 at 13:54
August 8, 2017 at 07:12
August 7, 2017 at 14:54
In ds 260 there is a question saying have you been visa refused or refused your visa application at the port of entry and I had someone who field a petion for me it was petion of alien fiance and it was denied by Uscis and It didn’t pass to visa center or us embassy and I didn’t make an interview is petion denied count a visa refusal thank you
August 7, 2017 at 14:58
You already asked this – and I answered. Please don’t waste my time.
August 7, 2017 at 16:36
Hi Brit, My Case NR for EU 34xxx. Submitted May 24th!! So can u guess for me?
August 7, 2017 at 16:46
August 8, 2017 at 12:10
Hello Simon I don’t have a word to thank you!!
In this blog i,e, “Possible early notice of first DV2018 Visa bulletin”
>>”The countries that specially slowed (Nepal, Iran, Egypt and Ethiopia), all have so many selectees in the early number ranges that they are slowed down for processing.”
here is my question:-
1.do you know the largest case number which is in early range in Ethiopia?
2.how many winners in Ethiopia? tell me if you know the quota.
3. does it takes an advantage from the highest case numbers in Ethiopia and other Africans?
4.how many early case numbers taken by Egypt and Ethiopia?Quota.
super thank you Mr.
August 8, 2017 at 14:23
Let me help you on some of the questions
1.The highest CN from Ethiopia is around 46 000, analysis is mainly from Simon bolg and other DV forums
2.for DV2018 4496 entries are selected from Ethiopia
-For 3rd and 4th question Simon might give you precise answer but what ever number is selected from a country VISA is available only for 3500 people, this includes the derivatives,i.e one selected entry might take more than one visa (in case of family winners).
I think from this info you can make your own prediction, And the good thing so far for Ethiopia is all DV selectee have been interviewed. I got almost all the info’s from britsimonsays.com
August 8, 2017 at 14:57
1. I would be surprised if it were that high.
2. The 4496 is selectees, not entries.
August 9, 2017 at 11:25
Thank you Bro
August 17, 2017 at 20:58
Makmad , im also also a 2018 winner from ethio shall we change some information ,my email is [email protected]
August 8, 2017 at 15:16
1. I’m not clear on what you are asking – but I don’t know the precise numbers per country.
2. 4496 selectees (winners + derivatives). The 7% country limit is not a concern for Ethiopia, and there is no quota specifically for Ethiopia or any other country.
3. I don’t understand.
4. I don’t know.
August 8, 2017 at 12:34
Greetings Brit! Sorry my case number 2018AF12XXX submitted on 9 May ..do i expect my interview in november hopeful or since it was a early submission i can get à chance for October interview..Sorry brit.
August 8, 2017 at 15:11
Wait and see.
August 8, 2017 at 18:06
Hello Brit! I wonder, could it be just an example that KCC provided to people?
August 9, 2017 at 00:24
No, I don’t think so.
August 8, 2017 at 19:23
For October, immigrant numbers in the DV category for Europe is 2600? I highly doubt it as it has never been this low since DV started,it’s always around 8000 and considering 40000 ish winners from Europe it makes no sense,will see when bulletin comes out,but seems like typo to me
August 8, 2017 at 20:01
Did you read my explanation???
August 8, 2017 at 22:50
I have read a lot of Q&A , just saying number 2600 for Europe is extremeley low, never been that low that’s all I am saying, don’t mean to be nasty or anything and if you mean explanation saying you think there is no backlog, I got it, but I still think it should be quite a bit higher unless many European entries were processed real quick and they expect vast majority of them to be approved as there are over 40000 “winners” from Europe.
August 9, 2017 at 00:11
I didn’t take your comments as nasty in any way. But the VB will be published over the next few days and I expect these numbers to be the actual numbers (although there is a chance they will have changed). So – wait and see…
August 8, 2017 at 22:49
Hi Simon, Just an FYI – I asked for my DS-260 to be unlocked to make a minor change yesterday. Awoke this morning to an email saying my case was “current for interview processing”. Seems like things are moving quickly this month – as you predicted.
August 9, 2017 at 00:13
Yes a number of people have been told the same for several days now – which ONLY makes sense if KCC already know what case numbers are current.
August 9, 2017 at 06:55
what region you are wonder?? and what is your case number (roughly), Just want to see where i am at the moment??
August 9, 2017 at 10:09
OC, and very low. Don’t panic. Your time will come.
August 9, 2017 at 04:33
My Case Number is OC47X. I had submitted my DS260 in the first week of May. Is there a chance that my interview is scheduled in December or would it be pushed into Jan onwards since the first lot is a low number compared to other years
August 9, 2017 at 04:36
Wait and see…
August 9, 2017 at 06:12
Brit, what is your prediction about the Europa final cut off number? I checked your historical visa bulletin sheet. This year seems like the year 2006. My case number EU15XXX. Could I get the interview slot from the KCC?
August 9, 2017 at 14:32
August 9, 2017 at 08:36
Hey Brit, Thank you for the useful information. Since less Iranian will be eligible to apply for a DV visa according to the ban, I thought the number of applicants applying for interview would be much less than always. With this in mind, is it possible that they have other reasons to restrict the case number for Iran? (other than what you mentioned) Our case number is AS29XX we’ve submitted our DS260s early May and We are from Iran, with this restrictions on Iran when do you think will be the earliest time we could have our interview?
August 9, 2017 at 14:30
THe restrictions in the VB are not because of the ban. As for when you will be current – wait and see.
August 9, 2017 at 09:20
what can be cut-off number at 15 september ?
August 9, 2017 at 14:28
I don’t know.
August 9, 2017 at 14:20
Visa bulletin is out and numbers are confirmed as you stated above…a bit shocked though
August 9, 2017 at 14:44
Why shocked? I have been doing this a while….
August 9, 2017 at 14:27
VB is realised seems like same cut of numbers
August 9, 2017 at 14:43
Yup – thanks.
August 9, 2017 at 17:50
Hello Brit, when do you suggest I should be submitting the D260 having a 2018 SA 16xx
Is it best to wait couple of months, January or to do it now??
August 9, 2017 at 17:55
It doesn’t matter – you will wait until summer for the case number anyway.
August 9, 2017 at 15:56
I have a few questions. You keep saying that we will know that we are invited to an interview, when our number is current, my question is how do we know that our number is current, wher it written?
I see VB listed current, but I do not understand how you can understand and draw this about my number (my number is AS72XX). I’ve read your entire site and I still do not understand. The second question is, I tried to understand your explanation of the low numbers. My question is, should I worry? When will I schedule an interview (if any)? If I submitted the form around the end of May, it does not affect my reading for the right interview?
thanx for your wonderfoul site!
August 9, 2017 at 16:07
I am certain you have not read my entire site. If you had, the FAQ would have led you to this post https://britsimonsays.com/read-visa-bulletin/
August 9, 2017 at 16:10
I am from Ethiopia but currently I live in the USA for school. I was selected for visa 2018 and my case number is 83.. so this morning I was able to check the visa bulletin section and I did not understand the middle part where it says 8500. Could you please help me understand that part.
August 9, 2017 at 16:13
Since you are from Ethiopia you go by that number (2100) not the AF region number. So – if your number is 2018AF83XX, you have to wait.
August 9, 2017 at 20:09
Hi how are you??? I see you’re from africa and live in US we do also my sister and I, and my sister also won this year for dv lottery2018 can you send me your email adress just for talking about Dv lottery etc… and helping each other??? Thanks
August 9, 2017 at 18:12
Pls, if want to travel with my step son and his real mother(my wife) to the US under the DV lottery program:
– will his real father sign a sworn letter giving ME(step father) or MY WIFE( real mother) or both of us(my wife and me) the permission to travel with the child?
I mean whose name will be on the letter; mine, my wife’s or both of us?
NB: we are legally married.
August 9, 2017 at 18:28
I don’t know how custody works in your country – so consult with a professional in your country that knows these matters.
August 9, 2017 at 19:58
How are you??? My sister case number is 2018Af000012××, so can she submit her document to USCIS for adjustment of status right now???because we live in U.S precisely in Seattle Washington and when may she be called for interview???some people told us she can be called in october is that right??? thanks
August 9, 2017 at 23:42
I am currently in USA and Also i am 2018 DV winner. Since I am here some lawyers told me that i should do AOS and not leave the country because currently my visa is expired but I am still in status. My case number is EU31XXX aand I am so worried if i will have time to complete the AOS process.
My questions are:
1.Do you think I can get an interview since my case number is high and the October cut-off is really low?
2. IS it really risky If i decide to go back and do consular Processing? (Lawyer told me that i can lose my f1 visa too and can be denied from both)
3. If somehow I get the interview here is there a chance that i will be denied only because i am F1 visa older which is nonimmigrant visa?
August 9, 2017 at 23:57
2. I am not an AOS expert – but yes – if you do CP and are denied, you could lose your F1.
3. Not for that reason.
August 10, 2017 at 09:07
Hi Brit, I have a question with regard to this situation:
1.Does deny in DV-visa could cause automatic canceling of non-immigrant US visas which person already has?
Other question non-related to this, but to ds-260 filling in about a child.
1.Applicant is filling in all information in the child’s form. Is it possible to put there phones and mails of adults, with whom child will travel?
2.Is it ok that in child’s DS-260 the same questions as for adults ( for example, about work, marrital status, etc.)?
August 10, 2017 at 13:58
1. Not always.
August 10, 2017 at 12:24
Do you have any guess about the time that possibly I can have the interview?
And do you think the cut- off numbers will increase more since it started really low? When I check 2014 which had 140K selectees, 30700 was current in the month of May. Do you think that would be something similar ?
Thank you Brit!
August 10, 2017 at 13:47
August 10, 2017 at 20:07
My Case number is AS83xx . is it a good number for Asia region?
August 10, 2017 at 21:41
August 11, 2017 at 10:52
Hi Brit,thanx for the great help,we appreciate.I have some querys
1.when I was submitting my ds260.it had technical error but thru ur help I managed to submit successfully by omitting the first 3zeros as u advised,did DAT change my case no.from AF00027xxx to AF27xxx or it remained as the initial given??
2.I lost my documents I.e passport n high school certificate n I was informed DAT my country-kenya no longer replace lost certificates but instead writes a letter to show that I have completed my high school diploma,will that inconvenience me??can I use my results slip in case I’m summoned for the interview??
3.My case no.is AF00027xxx when should I be expecting my interview,because I need to replace my passport and getting the letter from KNEC which I am afraid it might take long.Thanx again for your help and information, personally I appreciate your effort.
August 11, 2017 at 14:08
1. Your number did not change.
2. Present what you have – but they may ask you to get more evidence after the interview which would delay your case.
3. It will be some months yet.
August 10, 2017 at 21:26
My case number is 2018EU11XXX
Is this considered high or low. Any chance to be interviewed?
August 10, 2017 at 21:44
August 12, 2017 at 01:10
My number is 2018AS00011+++ Do you think I will get interview? If so which month do you think ?
Thank you for your help.

August 12, 2017 at 07:31
Hello Brit, this is Sarah..I’m regularly following your site and found the only site which covers DV questions so nicely. I’m DV winner from AS quota..my question:
1.I’m legally living in US on dependent F4 visa with my husband. I submitted D260 in May, should I also submit AOS? I’m looking for COS and do not plan to go out side..
2. As I’m in USA and looking for AOS not asking for interview through relevant embassy, there a possibility that I get some early call as numbers are low for AOS in USA?
August 12, 2017 at 07:40
1. You seem a bit confused. Read the information on the following link. In particulat the spreadsheet linked from the first post on that thread. http://forums.immigration.com/threads/dv-2018-aos-only.336256/
2. You cannot submit your I-485 before you number is current.
August 12, 2017 at 14:23
Are your number above 8000 or below?
August 13, 2017 at 02:43
YOUR CASE IS CURRENTLY AT: KCC
August 14, 2017 at 02:59
Same confusion what does that mean…your case is ar kcc?
August 14, 2017 at 04:17

Hello Mr. Brit. Please could you rate my number’s risk level?
2018af467**—- low, normal or high risk?
August 14, 2017 at 14:16
You have asked me this question numerous times. My answer won’t change, but I do get tired of people asking things over and over again.
August 16, 2017 at 19:26
Is there a chance that, not only a high number of DS260s have been processed this year (as you mention in your post), but also that a higher number of people have submitted their DS260s, which in essence results in a high volume of numbers never going current this year, particularly in Europe?
August 16, 2017 at 21:53
Response rates tend to be the same year to year. For changes to happen, there would need to be some reason to explain that increased or decreased desire. example, immigration is down right now – meaning the desire is less – because we have a moron in the White House. But I cannot imagine a reason why there would be a sudden INCREASE in response rate in EU region – but theoretically that would change the final outcome if it happened. That is why I am not prepared to predict final cutoffs.

Thank you Simon for your insights, appreciated. Let’s hope your predictions are accurate as I have a EU27XXX number and would really like to smash that interview next year.

Greetings Mr. You could share with us your forecasts of visa numbers granted by regions for the DV 2017
August 24, 2017 at 16:06
No. I don’t have a prediction.

From what I understand,for example Asia , the total of selected winners are 15997 but this number is not actual because Iran 4500 winners and Nipal 4097 winners are counted separately.
So the actual counted numbers for Asia will be 15997-4500-4096=7400
Am I right?
August 28, 2017 at 02:52
No – I don’t think so. Iran and Nepal are part of the Asia region and numbered within the Asia numbers.
August 28, 2017 at 04:43
I’m not talking about numbered
I’m talking about the maximum number for Asia will be except Iran and Nipal
I’ll count it in other way
If my case number was 115xx and the total number in Asia 15997 so I will count it this way 115xx/15997= Around 72%
So the 72% from 7400 will be 53xx
This will be my number is Asia counting except Iran and Nipal
August 28, 2017 at 05:05
That doesn’t make any sense to me…

My case is 2018 OC9**.
1. I submitted my ds260 and recently noted that the place it says enter number of institutions in education section I entered- 2 ; referring to my two tertiary level institutions where I got my diploma and degree from. Should I unlock and enter my secondary level as well.
2. I also entered my mothers surname after marriage because my mother had no surname.. Should I unlock and make these changes???
September 10, 2017 at 14:05
2. No change for the name.
September 11, 2017 at 12:10
Hi brit, please I have this worries.
1. When i was filling my DS260, instead of putting Management as the degree which I had i made a mistake and put Business Management. Will this cause me problems?.
2. If yes how can I handle this now that I am ready for October interview (AF40XX) but not yet received the 2NL?
Thanks in advance my Brit.
