We will be watching this forum throughout Coronavirus/Covid emergencies to post information and to answer your questions about affected US immigration and visas:
I’m OC18XX and am also staying positive that my number will eventually get called up for the exact same reasons!
I’m not sure if I’m reading the visa bulletin correctly but having a look at DV2020’s bulletins it looks like all case numbers can apply now? Is that what CURRENT means? I hope so because it gives me hope I might actually get a chance!
If there are as many holes this year as there was last year (and we dont have or continue to have a pandemic) that number should be fine!!I got OC21XX. Not really sure what the odds are but fingures crossed
Second time applying and got selected OC15xx. I’m already in the US on a J1 which will end next May so hope for approval by then!
it’s probably unlikely that you will have your interview by May...historically the range of numbers for May interview are 700-1200 range. I myself had 2018OC12XX and had my interview in August 2018.
Look at the spreadsheet here for historical info
Just so you can think about your plan and your interview location.
Thanks Aidyn, those dates and time frames are really helpful =)If there are as many holes this year as there was last year (and we dont have or continue to have a pandemic) that number should be fine!!
Congrats on your win, sit back, relax and enjoy the journey - its a long one!!
