The Visa Bulletin for JUNE 2023 has been published! In it are the regional cut-off numbers to apply in the Diversity Visa program in JULY 2023.
For July, most regions and all exception countries had their cut-off numbers increased. The increases have made new case numbers current for interview for July in the regions concerned. Such cases can expect to receive their interview notification as of now. However, a case number becoming current in the Visa Bulletin does not mean that that case will be scheduled for interview at all cost.
Interview scheduling also depends on other factors, including whether the DS-260(s) concerned has/have been submitted, whether it has/they have been processed, as well as the pace of interviews conducted at the embassy or consulate concerned.
Below are the regional cut-offs numbers that will apply in JULY 2023 as shown in the June 2023 Visa Bulletin:
With the publication of this Visa Bulletin, cases whose case numbers are current in the various regions and exception countries now include the following:
AFRICA: (same as for June) Case Numbers 1 through 63,499;
Except: ALGERIA: Case Numbers 1 through 39,999; EGYPT: Case Numbers 1 through 43,199 and MOROCCO: Case Numbers 1 through 62,999

Cases whose case numbers are the same or higher than their regional cut-off are still not current, and can not expect to receive their interview notification yet. Applicants concerned must continue to follow the Visa Bulletin as it is published in upcoming months – to ascertain the status of their case number.
The Visa Bulletin is published every month, and it is by means of this tool that Diversiy Visa applicants get to know the month when their case becomes eligible for interview. Publication of the next Visa Bulletin – for the month of July 2023 – will be done some time in June. The cut-offs shown in that Visa Bulletin will be for AUGUST 2023 interviews.
