Dear Editor:

Being the largest US-Immigration Supporter in Switzerland, we have considerable experience in the field of the Diversity Visa Lottery. I would like to share some of that experience with the other readers of your daily newsletter.

Persons being positively selected in the DV-Program often ask about the timing of their Embassy appointment. A few years back large numbers of the prospective Continental allocation had been made available already in the early months of the visa year. Embassy appointments were within those allocations scheduled upon receipt of the formal immigrant applications, i.e. first come - first served. This pattern seems to have changed last year, and more drastically this year. From the current visa bulletins it becomes obvious that fairly low amounts of visa numbers are available in the first few months, with a steady raise over the remaining months. Embassies also seem to be more reluctant to change appointments into later months. A stricter monthly reporting procedure seems to be in place now.

This of course allows us to forecast the approximate timing of the visa appointment better, as it is more linked to the case number now than in earlier years.

Hoping that some of this "expertise" will help attorneys with much smaller numbers of winners to advise their clients accordingly.

Yours truly,
Matthias Pfeiffer MBA
