KATHMANDU: The U.S. Embassy in Kathmandu has been issuing a limited number of visas to DV winners. As many as 16 DV winners received visas from the US Embassy here in June.

Visas had not been issued to DV winners until May 2021 due to several reasons such as COVID-19 restrictions and halt of services.

A limited number of DV winners received visas in July as well but details of how many visas were issued is yet to be known. Visa interviews for DV winners have also been scheduled for August and September.

According to the US State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs, 23 Nepalis from around the world received diversity visas last month.
