Reviewing the official Nominated for 2023 page, perhaps we can narrow or confirm certain nominations.

Hin Nam No National Protected Area (Laos) [Transboundary extension to Phong Nha - Ke Bang]

"That Hin Nam No undergoes assessment for Green Listing at the same time as its sister site, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in Vietnam. This way, the future transboundary world heritage site, as a whole, will fulfill the highest international management standards," Deputy Director General of the Department of Heritage, Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, Phakhanxay Sikhanxay, said." - Article February 2021

"Improved Management Puts Hin Nam No on Track Towards Achieving UNESCO Natural World Heritage Status"
- Official Website Hin Nam No National Protected Area

I cannot find confirmation that Hin Nam No National Protected Area (Laos) actually submitted a final dossier for 2023 and while progress seems near completion, that could easily mean 2024 or 2025.

Si Thep Historical Park (Thailand) seems like the likely nomination for 2023 after its priority status for 2022 (incomplete). However, there is to my knowledge no clear evidence that any nomination dossier was finalized and submitted to UNESCO before the deadline. Chiang Mai remains active and we have 2 other nominations potentially listed for 2024! So we know which Thai TWHS are active, but the actual certainty of which site, which year, remains unclear.

Are there any of these extensions expected in 2023?
- Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests (extension)
- Extension of Danube Limes

Serbia's "Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe" tentative nomination was removed in 2021?

We have Vila Viçosa for 2023 and 2024, but it really is only possible for 2024 now.

Deer Stone Monuments and Related Sites, the Heart of Bronze Age Culture (Mongolia) was submitted to UNESCO in January 2019 and because of the pandemic, the Advisory body evaluation was delayed. the nomination was referred (one of the few matching decisions by the WHC with the Advisory Bodies). There is a fair chance this referred nomination is brought back before the committee in 2022, instead of 2023.

Has there been any news about these nominations?
- Historic Guild Town of Mudumu (Turkey)
- Mountain Ecosystems of Koytendag (Turkmenistan)
- Mt. Mantalingahan Protected Landscape (Philippines)
- Mt. Sabalan (Iran)
- Rijal Almaa (Saudi Arabia)
- Royal Mausoleums of Numidia (Algeria)
- The Coptic Monasteries of Wadi al-Natrun (Egypt)

I moved it to 2024 about an hour ago, so you might have been looking at an older / cached page for 2023 where it still showed.

The issue, in general, is that we can be sure that there are more nominations for 2023 than you have listed, but that these will come from countries where we cannot follow the news well or where such things aren't published. Most likely I think will be sites that have been Referred earlier, or had incomplete nominations, of where news has floated around earlier (such as in the examples above).

But we can ask Durian about Si Thep, he earlier wrote it would be first in line. And maybe also about Hin Nam No.

Absolutely, definitely an imperfect Science to reach a high level of accuracy. There are always nominations that seemingly come out of nowhere. Certain regions and countries also tend to have more published news about world heritage nominations. We currently have 19 confirmed nominations for 2023 and these sites are near certain (though a surprise delay can and probably will happen). With another 12 nominations as possible, though with a great deal of uncertainty, it's part of the routine (and fun) that we'll never know for sure until it's all officially published!

Repost :)

Really frustrated to inform that no news at all. There was a scandal on budget management on archaeological study of Si Thep Historical Park, so government prefers to keep silence on any progress of Si Thep to avoid media attention.

For Hin Nam No, last month Lao Government just cleared understanding with local communities on free access after become WHS. The report of site survey with Germany and IUCN assistance just finished late last year. so it would be a miracle to finish all nomination document within this year.

Ancient Port of Banbhore (Pakistan)

Incomplete nomination originally submitted for 2022, now seems ready for 2023. Nagarparkar Cultural Landscape could also be submitted simultaneously, but would likely be aiming for 2024.

"His department had already submitted dossiers on Nagarparkar and Banbhore with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) for their inclusion in list of World Heritage Sites."

Archaeological Site of Marib (Yemen)

"The file was received by Alessandro Belsamo, head of the nomination committee at the World Heritage Center at the headquarters of the International Organization in the French capital, Paris. According to the source, during a whole year, the file preparation team carried out continuous work to meet the date of submitting the initial version, which will be subject to observations by the organization's nomination committee, before the final presentation takes place next January for the final version to be examined by an advisory committee that takes the necessary recommendations to qualify Ma'rib monuments for the Heritage List." - September 30th, 2021

Ancient Jericho/ Tell es-Sultan (Palestine)

"A few days ago, the Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, Rola Maaya, signed the final versions of the nomination file for the "Ancient Jericho - Tell Al-Sultan" site for inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List, in the presence of the Ministry's World Heritage staff." - January 2022

Hin Nam No National Protected Area (Laos) [Transboundary extension to Phong Nha - Ke Bang]

Hin Nam No National Protected Area has been delayed.

"It is known that the Government of Lao PDR wanted and nominated Hin Nam No National Park to become the next extension of the World Natural Heritage Phong Nha - Ke Bang of Vietnam. At the same time, in the past, UNESCO and IUCN encouraged Vietnam and Laos to jointly nominate a cross-border world heritage area, but due to various reasons, it has not been implemented."

Suriname: The settlement of Joden Savanne and Cassipora Cemetery

I am going to include this for 2024, since it seems it was not ready for submission for 2023 (though 90% complete).

The Olive Grove Landscapes of Andalusia (Spain)

Spain's nomination has also been moved to 2024. I wonder if Spain submitted anything for 2023? If so, I suppose it would most likely be either The Ribeira Sacra, Lugo and Orense or Priorat-Montsant-Siurana Mediterranean Mountain Agricultural Landscape.

2024. After a file has been submitted (before 1 Feb 2023), they need to check whether it is complete. It will be included in the 2023 document "List of nominations received". If it is deemed complete, the evaluation cycle starts with a site visit by ICOMOS etc.

Some news about the 2023 WHC prep (and thereby the 2022 documents) has trickled through, and it is bad for the Japanese Sado mines:
https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2022/07/67594f978c40-unesco-not-reviewing-japans-sado-mine-for-2023-world-heritage-list.html

It seems to be a politically motivated "incomplete"...
