And for those that like numbers - again, this is all quite easy in OC. Using DV2015 OC response rate and the issued rate can show roughly how many visas they would need to serve the the 3863 people selected. Response rate from DV2015 - 46% Issued rate from DV2015 - 72.75% So - that means 46% of the 2418 cases (calculated above) will respond - 1112 cases. 72.75% of the 1112 would be approved based on DV2015 approval rate - 834 cases. The derivative rate grows a little during the year (babies, and marriage) - so the 834 cases would need at least 1400 visas for everyone to be happy. The quota is around 800.
