    @ arsem-6-123 in this particular case yup you are correct.
    But also if my number is lower and i had been delayed on filling the form due of any reasons, this is also not meaning i will get delay on the interview schedule.
    so i only meant no relation on delaying the for filling and the interview, its depending on your case number only and their work.

    You can find the historical numbers for all the 5 regions from the following link:

    http://forums.immigration.com/threads/historical-visa-bulletin-numbers-5-regions.324166/

    However if you want an Ethiopian specific historical data, you'll have to create that from the link I provided in my previous response. Communal effort is mostly what has been keeping this forum running and making it supportive and helpful to those going through the DV process.

    Hi arsem ,
    My case no is 29*** I think we are on the same boat. U can see the historical VB on the site mom replied but analyizing that will only drive u crazy I think its better to exercise patience and hope for a better number for next month.

    Am sorry but I was not foolwing VB this year, but sounds like it is a bit fast compared to 2015, one thing I learned from my DV lottery experience is "Patience" you are selected for a reason, try to exercise patience and enjoy your time back home :):)

    the VB progress for AF and ethiopia doesn't go with the same pace and GAP.. you can refer back to the previous VB's .. last year's bullentin for eth., for example, was faster at this time..

    it's just about time though.. . but this year's ds260 processing and VB is so slow for ethiopians unto this time.

    you can take my case too, I have a fairly low CN(9***) which became current in Jan. , been more than 7 month since I submitted the form but guess what,? haven't received 2nl yet..

    I really needs help from sinors
    I was looking Brit web and try
    to understand reason for slow
    VB at this time also I have
    checked the historical VB for
    Africa 2016,2015 its seems
    the same i mean the
    progration is even a little bit
    batter this year and from
    previous experience the real
    pace starts from april ,may,
    jun, because of several reason
    which I understand and the
    thing is I just can not get the
    extracted historical VB
    ....

    You guys are over complicating a simple thing.

    The pace year to year will be different. The DS260 backlog causes an early fast pace and a slowdown in the middle months. But the overall plan is to stretch processing out over a full year. They don't want to have all the interviews completed in 6 months - that would be inefficient, and potentially unfair to a low case number later submission. So - they control the pace. Stop stressing about it. It doesn't matter if you have to wait an extra month or two.

    Hi Arsem,

    Take it easy and relax, keep in mind that just a few people get selected over millions that apply every year. This little wait is nothing compared to a not selected :)

    I'm sure your case will get processed in the appropriated time and congrats again for your selection.

    This is my third time trying with the lottery and hoping to be lucky on this DV 2018. In my opinion getting selected is the hardest part of the process and you are part of that small % that gets the good news. Just relax now and feel good that you just have to wait now for interview and get prepared. Congrats and best of luck :)

    Yes, they want to make sure the person is not infectious anymore, they will have repeat x-ray, skin test, sputum exam.... If confirmed infective it must be treated before visa approval.
