2NLs are starting to be sent for August interviews (DV2019). Please note – I am saying STARTING to be sent, some 2NLs will be sent right up until the end of the month.
This relates to DV2019, and does not concern DV2020 in any way.
Please also understand that 2NLs are only sent to cases which are current, had submitted their DS260 so that processing has been completed on that AND they have sent their documents some time ago. If someone only sent their documents in the last week or two, that was probably not in enough time to get on the list to be scheduled this month, and the interview will be held in a later month.
Some people previously got 2NL emails but then had to wait days or even a couple of weeks before the interview letter showed on the ESC page. Other people waited until the beginning of the following month to get their 2NLs and ESC page update. So – be patient, stay calm. Some physicians won’t schedule the medicals unless you have the 2NL in hand, BUT there is plenty of time before these interviews, no need to stress out!
VERY IMPORTANT. 2NLs will be sent during the remainder of the month. If you do not get yours today – no need to freak out, just wait. There is no need to ask me or anyone else about specific regions or countries, assume any country or region could have 2NLs as late as the last day of the month (last day in the USA, not where you live).
Also, you will not get the 2NL if you have not submitted your DS260 AND your documents to KCC AND your case number is current (lower than the VB number for your region). If ANY of those three things are not true you will not get the 2NL, and there is no need to ask me about that – it should be clear (especially as I have repeated this information many times before and a couple of times in this article).
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. You log in to the ESC page with your original confirmation code (from when you entered the lottery.

Hey Brit. Thank you so much for your help.I’m dv2019.. I received my 2nl my interview is in Aug.
I would like to ask something. In 2014 I was dating an American who came to my country – in East Africa, To visit me. He visited twice, but the second time, he never returned to the US. We broke up in 2015 though. I think he doesn’t have a work permit here in kenya yet he has a restaurant business.
I was just worried if his visa expired, will the embassy know about his visit and probably question me…
Considering that he had given my personal details to kenyan embassy in USA or American Embassy when he was visiting the first time.
June 29, 2019 at 19:32
I don’t know.

I have scanned my documents such as Birth Certificates, Passports and Police certificates for me and my family and also sent them to KFC. Please confirm me if I am going to get interview date this month.
July 1, 2019 at 22:53

Ask KCC if they are satisfied with your documents.

My photos are on my computer ,
I have to put them in an album to show the concil or i can just show him on my computer ?
July 5, 2019 at 21:45

Hello Brit, thank you for your helpful comments.
I completed highschool, and have the Transcript and submitted all three required documents. But, the country I am from do not give give a matriculation result for those didn’t have a good result to enter college instead, we are required to continue national services which I did and received a diplom.
For your knowledge, is there a new rule that says you have to have the matric result?
I know two girls from my country got disqualified and I am asking an advice from you for my August interview.
Thank you for your time.
July 6, 2019 at 03:55
I don’t know specifics in your country.
July 7, 2019 at 19:18
I’m from Italy and I did my police check certificate back at the beginning of march the 4th/03 I got my interview scheduled for the end of august the 27th/08, how long does the police certificate for my own country last is 6 months or one year? Do I need to get a new one and bring with me at the interview?
July 7, 2019 at 22:02
To avoid the concern, get a new one.
July 8, 2019 at 08:01
mportant: Police certificates expire after one year, unless the certificate was issued from your country of previous residence and you have not returned there since the police certificate was issued. If at the time of your interview the following three items are all true, you must bring a new police certificate to your visa interview:
You are more than 16 years old;
The police certificate was obtained more than one year ago; and
You still live in the country that issued the certificate.
Cause I read this on the DV website and I thought I wouldn’t need a new
July 8, 2019 at 23:27
I said “To avoid the concern”.
July 16, 2019 at 17:15
The 2nl for septmber did not sent yet
July 16, 2019 at 17:26
Correct. It can be ANYTIME in the second half of the month.
July 19, 2019 at 12:19
My case number is above 38000, 2019 applicants.
I received the documents received Email on June 14, still didn’t receive 2NL email for interview.
Should I write to Kcc to ask about the interview date?
July 19, 2019 at 13:54
July 23, 2019 at 10:53
Please what do you mean by 2NL? I’ve searched through all the posts, and I cant figure out what it is….neither can I see the video you’re talking about.
July 23, 2019 at 20:10
2NL is the notification of interview date and time.
July 24, 2019 at 07:05
I had mine in June…. And I’ve been scheduled for interview on the 1st of August.
My case is a three digit, but I couldn’t start the process early; submitted my DS 260 early February, and I was asked to submit all the supporting documents, which I did that same month.
