You must take note that all the selected winners in a given fiscal year program will not be called for the interview as the allocated slots may exhaust before the closing date. There are 50,000 permits will be issued under this program each year and 100,000 winners used to be selected as winners as all the selected people may not have the required eligibility requirements. So to give away all the allocated ones, this procedure is followed by the State Department each year.
