🚨MAJOR update for #DV2020 & #DV2021! Many thanks to @curtisatlaw for posting!!!

1. Govt has completed the IT "updates" so they will be ready to process reserved visas in Gomez/Goh/Rai/Goodluck/Filazapovich IF APPEALS are SUCCESSFUL ....
2. As we all suspected the updates were minor. It appears that it involved the ability to re-upload DV cases from prior years and be able to differentiate between "active" (meaning #DV2022) and "inactive" (#DV2021 and #DV2020). Running of the script at posts will take minutes.
3. It sounds like in the process of doing this modifications to the system & software DOS has actually gone through the prior cases. And DOS has now "deployed" 36,872 cases of #DV2020 and #DV2021 selectees in "inactive" status.

I got 3 DMs/emails <5 min from #DV2022 asking to "confirm that the 55K cap could be exceeded" NO it can't.

I suppose either there was some group misunderstanding on social media or some of the DV YouTube 'experts' is striking again.

A short #DV2022 🧵
The DV statutory cap is established by the statute and is 55K (minus adjustments for NACARA) per year. There are no roll-overs and no special stash @TravelGov can reach into to grant more than the 54850 (I think is the #) DV visas allowed for FY 2022.
The number is total DV visa allocations. Meaning it includes
*both principals and their respective derivatives
* visas issued by consulates & AOS granted by USCIS.

IT is a grand total. Once DOS reaches that number they must stop issuing visas.
