Hello Simon, thank you again for all your help. Looking forwards optimistically in case I do indeed get an interview scheduled next month, I just have a few specific queries, if I may:
Firstly with regards to formal police records- I successfully acquired one from the U.K. based ‘ACRO’ (as I previously lived in England where I completed my BA Law degree). However, that certificate was issued back in December ’19- hence do I need to apply for another one, as more than 6 months has elapsed since then? I also successfully applied for a Hong Kong based police record, also last December ’19(although that certificate was sent directly from the HK police headquarters to the US Consulate General here in HK).
My second query is based on the fact that I have read that we should have a good knowledge of our own D-260 visa application questions, answers and other info, including ‘dates of your visits to different places.’ I am usually quite good at recalling specific dates- however, I wish to know whether it would be like, for lack of better word, ‘pop quiz’ style, where they would fire out questions regarding specific years where I went to so-and-so location? In addition, I personally previously studied in the U.S, albeit short term, and admittedly at more than 1 university(although I did not obtain my BA degree in the U.S). (On that note, I still kept my old passport with my U.S. student visa stapled in it). Would the interview possibly resemble something akin to a job interview, where the consular officer may ask why I changed schools, gaps in time, what grades I got at the U.S. uni’s, yada yada? Thank you so much again, Simon. God bless, take care.

Hi Brit, pls my case number is 2021AF000020** and have successfully submitted all documents( police cert etc) to KCC on 7 August 2020 and awaiting interview. According to KCC if between 3 to 6 weeks I don’t hear from them about the interview date I should contact them. It’s past 6 weeks and I haven’t heard from them. Pls how long should i wait for my interview date and to make a complaint to KCC if the date isn’t out. Thanks in advance

You need to wait. Ignore the 6 weeks. They probably will contact you in November.

Hello Mr Simon
Do I need to bring my 13 yrs old kid to the DV interview? I have to go to a foreign consulate and do not want to expend in airtickets and so on if it is not necessary.
Thanks in advance and regards

I’m an Australian with dual Italian citizenship. When sending my documents, do I send scans of both my Australian and Italian passports or just my Australian?
Also, am I correct in assuming that my high school diploma is to be taken to the interview only and not sent with the documents?
Thanks you for your guidance!
