The Department of State has issued all available 55,000 diversity visas for the 2023 Diversity Visa Program. Each year, the Department of State is legally allowed to issue approximately 55,000 diversity visas. When all of the 55,000 diversity visas are issued, the program concludes for that year in all countries – not just Uzbekistan.
The next Diversity Visa Program entry period will open in early October, and we encourage all who are eligible to apply. Those who were not selected this year are able to apply for the program again. The U.S. Embassy in Tashkent will release more information about the next Diversity Visa program as soon as it is available.
The U.S. Embassy has notified applicants whose appointments have been canceled. We understand that the conclusion of the 2023 program may be disappointing to selectees who were unable to receive a visa. We remain committed to facilitating travel for individuals from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States and recognize the important contributions diversity brings to our communities and the impact on the U.S. economy.
