2NLs are starting to be sent for July interviews. Again, as has been the pattern for the last three months, these are earlier than normal, I expect we will see similar unusual process this month, so the 2NLs might be spread out over a few days, or even the next couple of weeks – I don’t know for sure. So – look out for the email – and check the ESC site.
Last month, some people 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. If your 2NL is delayed, it has nothing to do with President Trump and doesn’t mean aliens have invaded. Just relax and be patient. Some physicians won’t schedule the medicals unless you have the 2NL in hand, BUT these interviews are for JUNE, so there is plenty of time.
The other thing that happened last month was that some people did not get scheduled as they thought. Those people should find they have been assigned to July interviews. In the same way, it is possible that some embassies will not have capacity for the large number of cases to be scheduled this month – so some people will have a difficult wait until the end of the month.
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 ***

I just call kcc right now concerning my CN Af290xx from Cameroon and the said my interview has been scheduled on the 28 August and that there’s some delays for me to get my 2nl. That I should wait between 10 business days to get 2nl email from them. That’s a good news for Cameroonian still waiting too
June 21, 2018 at 16:20
Good luck both of us
June 21, 2018 at 16:40
Yes that is good news.
June 23, 2018 at 06:54
What going on again!?
June 23, 2018 at 14:38
June 23, 2018 at 15:21
Hi Simon, so to prove that me and my family (2kids) will not become a public charge we will bring proof of money/assets to the interview. Do we need to get a certified translation for these papers as well if issued in another language?
Bank/other financial statements

Hello simon? Am from kenya with CN 3432* I HAVE not received my 2NL so far.my case is current but when I checked in CEAC data update I saw August 1st batch of cases to be interviewed on August and may have their cases stating in transit even cases as high as 48*** but my case states At NVC.i sent an Email last week and a reply states that it’s waiting to be scheduled by my Embassy which is Nairobi Kenya Consulate.kindly what might be causing this scheduling delay.i submitted my DS260 June 2017.is there a possibility that I might not be interviewed all? Are there cases that misses to be interviewed evev if they are low case Numbers? KINDLY your answer will be most regarded.
June 23, 2018 at 22:56
I honestly don’t know what will happen. I don’t think they can schedule all the cases left – but I don’t know which cases will be scheduled. All you can do is wait.
June 24, 2018 at 09:06
Kimwok Just be patient we will be scheduled as long as the embassy clearout all pending interviews.
I am AF 40XXX waiting to be scheduled for Nairobi embassy .
Just relax .Almighty God will handle it.
June 23, 2018 at 22:48
I’m a 2019 applicant, I try checking my Case but it’s giving hard time and no response from the site what can I do? With all the basic information giving on the confirmation paper.
June 23, 2018 at 23:40
June 24, 2018 at 07:32
Hi Simon, pls my CN 2018AF296xx in At NVC, pardon give me the meaning behind it. Pkd
June 24, 2018 at 14:25
It is the standard starting status – ignore it.
June 24, 2018 at 09:33
Ok ximon let’s wait but it seems some embassies are very slow on scheduling. Nairobi embassy seems like it’s picking a few cases randomly as long as you are current.
June 24, 2018 at 09:38
If you check on xiathrus there are only two cases ready between 36000 to 37000 and it is scheduled on May for July interview. August interview I didn’t see any new case ready
June 24, 2018 at 09:57
Plz give me the meaning of CN At NVC
June 24, 2018 at 11:36
case Number at National Visa Center
June 24, 2018 at 11:42
I’m also from Liberia bro we just have sit and watch everything mine is AF346xx.As for your question (CN Case Number) and NVC is National Visa Center
June 24, 2018 at 10:15
hello brit! My case NUMBER is 2018AF42###!

Thanks for reply! God bless you!
June 24, 2018 at 14:18
Yes you can ask KCC
June 24, 2018 at 10:53
i dont understand i see in CEAC DATA cn 26000 receive 2nls and in same time cn 47000 get 2nls in same time but 27k 29k 30k……38k not receive it.
NOT MAKE SENSE !!!!!!!!
June 24, 2018 at 14:14
Again – as I already described, case number order no longer matters in AF region, because the region is current.
June 24, 2018 at 23:52
Please Simon, something really confused me because I check on CEAC DATA I can see my case number in that figures list
June 25, 2018 at 01:44
In WHAT figures list? Make your point clear.
June 25, 2018 at 06:59
I don’t understand I see in CEAC DATA for July 2NLs.csv and August 2NLs.csv (1batch) many cases numbers status from 2000 to 52xxx some are ready, transit, None, At NVC, but I can’t see my case number in there , but my 2018 AF296xx
But I can see if a look like jump upon me or my case not received by them. Really I don’t know if. But I submit. My ds260 since April first
June 25, 2018 at 16:22
Once a number of cases are all current, the scheduling order between those cases is not based on case number.
All remaining AF numbers are current – so KCC are scheduling as many interviews as possible this month, and in July (for September interviews). It remains to be seen whether they can schedule all cases or not.
June 25, 2018 at 07:10
Pls how do you check the CEAC DATA for July NLs to know your number is not there pls
June 25, 2018 at 16:21
You can download the file from Xarthisius site
Check individual cases here
June 25, 2018 at 07:13
I have received 2NL for July interview.
But even though I have stated married and submitted DS260 for me and my wife, it stated 0 beneficiary.
So I called the embassy and indeed there’s only 1 appointment. I also check there’s only 1 status ready on CEAC data.
Please advise. Should I call KCC?
June 25, 2018 at 16:15
Yes. Are you sure you submitted one DS260 for EACH? Did you marry after initial entry? If so you would have needed to upload the marriage cert to the DS260 to add your wife as an applicant. Did you do that?
June 25, 2018 at 16:57
yes I submitted ds260 by adding spouse. therefore I have two confirmation form: one as applicant, one as accompany. I uploaded the marriage certificate because it’s mandatory in the form. and yes I got married after initial entry. I called kcc and they said there’s nothing else they can do as the case is already scheduled. they told me to go together on interview day and call embassy instead.
is it an error on their side or what?
I’m confused as I have prepared everything and now this.
June 25, 2018 at 17:02
I don’t know what caused the error. However, you must do as KCC said – contact the embassy, telling them what has happened and they will (hopefully) instruct you.
June 30, 2018 at 01:30

Your number is above the highest number announced in the FINAL VB. So you have no chance of the Green Card.
