How to decipher the visa bulletin

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

Im one of the lucky selected people for the DV-2014 visa.

Now i looked at the Visa Bulletin here and i have NO idea what means what, and even whether im looking at the right link.

My number is around EU-13000

If someone could try to explain to me how to read that bulletin so i could figure out when its my turn (once they post the new numbers in october)

id be really greatful.

Is there also a way to figure out if it makes a difference that im from Switzerland?

I have a EU number, but Switzerland isnt part of the Union... so i thought that maybe Swiss applications have their own quota...

Thanks for the help in advance!

EU stands for Europe, not European Union, so no you don't have your own quota.

It's very simple, if your number is less than or equal to the EU number for a particular month you will be called for interview in that month. You won't know for sure whether or not it's your turn until the month your number is published, also known as your number becoming current, although you may get an inkling the month before if the cutoff is close to your number. If the bulletin actually just says "current" , which it often does in the last month or two or the fiscal year, then all numbers are eligible for interview.
