Details of DV 2022 Results Released

Background

In the month of July or August every year, the State Department – in its monthly Visa Bulletin – releases the details of the DV results published a couple of months earlier. This information provides a deeper insight into the DV results and allows some level of ‘forecasting’ as far as the upcoming DV program is concerned. This year’s details have just been released!

The Numbers

For the DV-2022 Program, 119,021 entrants were selected and have been ‘notified’, and are encouraged to apply for one of the 54,850 Diversity Visas which will be on offer during Fiscal Year 2022 (October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022).

This year’s total number of selectees is lower than that of last year, but is still a high one, making a second DV-2022 draw much less likely. 119,021 also indicates that a total of at least 64,171 (total selectees – available visas) will certainly not receive one of the available visas. SELECTEES, TAKE NOTE!  

There had been a total of 7,336,302 qualified entries (13,191,296 with derivatives) submitted during the last entry period which ran from noon, Eastern Daylight Time on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, till noon, Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, November 10, 2020.

Countries with the highest number of selectees for the DV-2022 Program are mostly the same as those of last year: Algeria, Egypt, Russia, Sudan, and Uzbekistan, with each in excess of 6,000.
