View Full Version : DV-lottery unused quota?

Some of my friends told me that every year each country has a quota to issue the DV-lottery immigration visa. Suppose the quota is one hundred winners but there may have some winners does NOT fit the requirement for the immigration visa--so under this situation, there may have some space left within this one hundred space---does anyone know whether this "space" will be issued to other citizens of that country who fit this requirement such as by "first come, first served" basis or by other means?

The government takes care of that, they pick 100,000 or so winners, out of which only 55,000 will actually get visas. The rest are all standby.
