OK two country will go current this year
Thanks Roger, coincidentally I was just looking for this a couple of days ago. It must have been published very recently.
Interesting to see AF and AS as the beneficiaries of the EU/OC miss. I expect they will have fixed that somewhat with the second draw for DV2017. The 1st draw numbers were increased for EU, and reduced for AF and AS. The second draw is where the risk (if there is any) lies. But, we don't have numbers for the 2nd draw....
They also updated the yearbook. So it's time for me to update my sheets...
2013; 2014; 2015
Diversity 45,618; 53,490; 47,934
Hmm.... Guess we were lucky to be part of DV-2014 lot, specifically for EU Region....
Revised Regional Quotas (unofficial)
Based on my understanding of the law and appropriate numerical sources. DV-2018 is preliminary, change unlikely.
DV-2014 was indeed a fantastic year for Europe – but only for those folks who didn't miss out.
By the way, I'm thrilled about the face lifting of Homeland's yearbook Web site. Publishing the tables HTML coded means it takes me 1 minute to pull the data into Google Sheets. The messy Excel spreadsheets were a pain.
Looking at these number it seems there is possibility that SA region will have a larger amount of selected? I understand these are just projections but still just wanted to make sure I understand.
Ecuador is eligible in DV2018 - so the quota change with a small regional increase as shown above.
Thanks for the clarification BritSimon and its good to see another country in the SA region is eligible for DV2018. Happy New year 2017 for you
You too. Hopefully it will be a fun year for you - sometime in early May!
Thanks to you I understand that the lottery is all based on luck and I hope its on my side this next May . I'm sure as well it will be a great year, just waiting for May to do a nice vacation trip to the U.S. for a couple of weeks
For the SA region in the CEAC data it says that there where 223 cases issued and 12 refused, does this mean that there were a total of 235 interviews by january?
No, it doesn't mean that. The 235 issued includes derivatives
Oh ok, thanks
