Cases in which Additional Documents are Requested

Applicants whose case is refused pending additional documents should return with those documents as soon as possible. The DV program will end on September 30 of the running fiscal year or when all available visas are issued, whichever is first. After that time, no additional visas can be issued, and all existing cases will close.
