2NLs are starting to be sent for April interviews. This month was a bit different because some people noticed their case was “in Transit” (being sent to the embassy) as early as Friday the week before last. The 2NLs would normally be sent before we see the in transit status. So – they have waited quite some time to send the 2NLs, and we need to scrape the cases again to see how many interviews have been scheduled.

The email itself has no useful information. It simply tells you to check the ESC site for the interview details. Some people that receive the email will find the ESC site is not ready, those people should try again after a few hours. Also, some people find the email itself goes to a trash or spam folder or somehow miss it. So – if you think you may have been scheduled but missed your email, you can check the ESC site, just in case. The 1NL (you have been selected letter) is replaced by a new letter which gives the appointment details.

*** please for our willing scrapers – let’s get scraping (as we can then identify the cases that have been scheduled, and that tells us how many interviews are being scheduled per embassy/region ***



For those that received their interview notice, now is the time to start preparing for the interview. Gathering documents, scheduling the medical and so on. To learn how to prepare please view my guide on preparing for the interview.
