In recent months, several courts have ordered the Department of State (DOS) to reserve and adjudicate DV-2020 and DV-2021 diversity green cards. On August 17, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in Gomez v. Biden ordered DOS to “process DV-2020 applications in random order until all 9,905 diversity visas have been granted.” On October 13, 2021, the court ordered DOS to begin processing the 9,905 DV-2020 visas “as soon as is feasible and to conclude such processing no later than the end of the 2022 Fiscal Year, or September 30, 2022.”
