The Visa Bulletin for September 2023 was published earlier today, and it contains the first cut-off numbers that will apply in the DV 2024 Program. The cut-offs in question are meant to identify the case numbers eligible to be interviewed in October 2023, that month being the first month of interviews in the DV 2024 Program. The case numbers concerned will be the lowest in each region.
All case numbers that fall below the cut-off established for their region are the ones eligible for an October 2023 interview. Such cases can expect to receive their interview notification from now to the end of August, provided they’ve submitted their DS 260(s) and said DS 260(s) has/have been processed.
For the DV 2024 Program, the exception countries from the three big regions are the same as in the DV 2023 Program. They include Algeria, Egypt and Morocco (from the Africa region); Iran and Nepal (from the Asia region); and Russia and Uzbekistan (from the Europe region).
The regional cut-offs to apply in the month of October 2023 as presented in the Visa Bulletin for the month of September published earlier today are as follows:
