2NLs are starting to be sent for March interviews (DV2019).
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!
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.
January 18, 2019 at 01:30
Which regions of the world that started to receive 2NLs for March today, Please? It looks that not all regions receive them at the same time!
January 18, 2019 at 01:37
I have seen people from ALL regions. Did you read the article?
January 18, 2019 at 01:45
NO WHERE in the article says ALL regions!!! Thanks.
January 18, 2019 at 04:12
No. But it does say that not everyone will get their 2NL immediately. CALM DOWN.
January 18, 2019 at 02:28

I received email confirming my documents are received on 2-Jan-19. Today received only email but not 2NL.
January 18, 2019 at 14:51
Your documents were probably too late for interview in March. So – April would be more likely.
January 18, 2019 at 05:35
I received email but not 2NL. ESC site says “The verification period for confirmation number expired”. Hope I’m not doing it wrong and just need to be patient.
January 18, 2019 at 14:50
Sounds like you are doing it wrong.
January 18, 2019 at 06:09

Hi, Brit. Still waiting for the news about Xarthisius datas. We scraped with the hopes to continue. Do you know, will it continue? Thank you
January 18, 2019 at 14:56
We wil want to scrape some more numbers soon. I will post about it soon.
January 18, 2019 at 15:47
Scraper is active. If you go to CEAC page with script enabled it should show you new numbers
January 18, 2019 at 19:49
And some explanation here…
January 18, 2019 at 09:42
Still haven’t received email to send documents, EU16xxx and filled ds-260 on August. Do you think this is a problem and is it ok if I send documents without receiving email ? I am worried because police cert expires in 3 months in my country and considering a possible interview in May 2019, it will be invalid if I submit my docs right now ?
I contacted KCC and they said they’re still processing my ds-260 (more like a general response).
January 18, 2019 at 14:57
Send the documents. If needed, renew the police cert later.
January 18, 2019 at 12:40
Hi….. I received the 2NL today nd my interview is in March 🙂 thanks for your guidance Brit nd good luck to all
January 18, 2019 at 13:31
its been over a month since I received there last email which mentioned that I completed all the documents which was required for my case.
It made me think and worried about my interview date which has not been scheduled yet.S
My case number was included on visa bulletin for the month of December as per visa bulletin i supposed to be recieved my interview date on December but unfortunately I haven’t received my interview date and time yet,
January 18, 2019 at 15:10
January 18, 2019 at 16:14
Received 2NL today.. case number AF14***
January 22, 2019 at 12:16
I have submitted the documents in November 9 last year and my ds260 have been processed but not 2NL yet. I’m current right now AF12******. If my current month pass it doesn’t affect process or there is something else.
January 22, 2019 at 14:57
If the month passes you will be in a later month, that’s all. Be patient.
January 18, 2019 at 17:27
I have received my 2NL (EU88xx) sadly I have to reschedule it because I will not have my passport from the government until the beginning of March and my interview is scheduled in very very early March so I wont be able to make it. It is a bummer but I have to take the risk and reschedule it.
In the country I will be interviewed in (Ireland) it says on the webpage that I will need to register to their website then register for the interview, am I supposed to use that website for rescheduling? I couldn’t find a post dedicated to rescheduling and I heard that process if different for every country/embassy. so if I register from website can I also send a request from there to reschedule it or am I supposed to send an e-mail to Dublin embassy to contact them directly?
Thanks in advance!
January 18, 2019 at 19:59
Contact the embassy directly.
January 22, 2019 at 15:02
Thanks for your answer. I have contacted embassy directly and they refuse to reschedule it unless there is a medical emergency.
as I have mentioned above I will have my passport back on early March so I’m afraid I won’t be able to get the medical examination results and make it to interview. Do you know how many days do medical centers need to process results after the exam? Would they schedule me an exam 1-2 days before the interview? I have thought about going to interview without the medical results and go to medical examination later and provide the file but again they probably won’t examine me without the passport which will be with the US embassy.
I know it sounds unnecessary complicated but I really don’t want to lose my chance for interview and I’m really scared. What do you think I should do?
January 25, 2019 at 14:27
Hello Karen. It seems we are in a very similar situation. I also am interviewing in dublin at the beginning of march. But when I went to apply for my medical. I was told there was none available until August! Have you tried to schedule a medical?
January 18, 2019 at 17:55
Any AF15*** who received his/her 2nl ?
January 18, 2019 at 21:44
Hi Simon, all documents were submitted first week of Dec, i never received a confirmation that they received the documents, just the automatic email that you get from them when you send them something. i’m current for March, AS48**. what do you think?
January 18, 2019 at 22:06
I think you should be patient.
January 21, 2019 at 00:05
Thank you Simon, If documents are incomplete, do they send an email to let you know? Like the email they send to tell you that docs are complete?
January 21, 2019 at 00:56
They will if you ask them.
January 19, 2019 at 01:27
Esc kept telling me session timeout when i submit.please help me what’s the problem?
January 19, 2019 at 02:45
You probably have multiple windows open. Don’t do that.
January 19, 2019 at 07:09
hello brits AF13××× current since january after i send the required document i received an auto mail stating that my document were received but didnt get informed if my scanned document were processd or valid then i sent them an email if they processed my document then they respond this
Thank you for your inquiry.
Your DS-260 has been processed. You should have received, or will soon receive, an email from the Kentucky Consular Center giving you instructions to complete in order for your case to continue processing. Please follow the instructions in the email. Interviews are scheduled numerically based on case numbers that have completed processing. Interviews for the DV 2019 program will begin in October 2018 and conclude on September 30, 2019. Please refer to the visa bulletin at
what does it mean to you i havent still received 2NL?

January 20, 2019 at 15:50
Probably not. Email KCC if you want.
January 20, 2019 at 15:24
Hi brit i submitted all documents to kcc already a got conifarmation of my document almost 2 months ago cuse no 11****havent reiceved 2nl i resend my documents a gain?
January 20, 2019 at 15:42
Wait until he end of the month.
January 20, 2019 at 18:12
My case number is EU94xx
I completed my ds in june but had to reopen the form so I could make some changes. So I resent it on 13th november meanwhile all documents wanted by KCC have been sent on november 3rd. On december 11th I got an email from kcc telling that my ds was complete and valid and all documents were received. According to visa bulletin I should have had the interview on February. Still no 2nl.
Do you think me reopening my ds form has delayed my interview? Do you think I will be scheduled on March?
Thank you for your patience with us! 🙂
January 20, 2019 at 19:06
Wait until the end of the month…
January 21, 2019 at 06:46

January 21, 2019 at 15:52
I don’t know. I can barely understand your question.
January 21, 2019 at 19:26
I’ll come back to you with a question about police certificates.
I went to the provincial police today. Then looking at the US website about the police certificate, with the details mentioned, they told me that if they make this request with this information the RCMP will not accept it. Then they let me know that they are used to making fonts certificates on paper without the need to take fingerprints.
There I really do not know what to do, if you can help me on this case.
Thank you so much
January 22, 2019 at 03:08
Follow the instructions on the reciprocity page.
January 21, 2019 at 20:05

January 23, 2019 at 20:36
Do you know someone who had a problem to access to his ds260 and he got a visa or 2nl ?
Do you think that this problem can impact somehow ?
January 23, 2019 at 20:44
Obviously you need to complete the DS260 in order to get your case processed.
January 24, 2019 at 10:50
Yes of course I completed my ds260 but after the maintenance of the web site it shows me this message “The Case Number entered is currently unavailable. ”
I know that a lot of winners have this problem but I want to know if someone got a visa or 2nl ?
If not do you think that it can impacts somehow ?
January 24, 2019 at 14:39
January 24, 2019 at 15:58

Hello Brit, I am a winner of DV 2019, my country Venezuela is going through a political crisis very important, my question is: if the American embassy in Venezuela were to close, I could to do my interview in another country or in the United States?
January 24, 2019 at 03:45
Another country possibly, NOT the USA.
January 24, 2019 at 04:00
Hi Brit! Thanks for the information
In the email sent to KCC for the online documents:
I should put the case nr as the subject
Then should I just upload the documents or also write my full name, birthday and case number ?
January 24, 2019 at 04:44
They give precise instructions in the email.
January 24, 2019 at 04:24
Hi brit which case reported?
January 24, 2019 at 04:45
I can’t read your mind – you have to make your question clear.
January 24, 2019 at 12:47
helloo !! I am from Albania …. I see many winners in 2019 with case number below 13000 who have not received email from kcc..A can you explain why this is happening in the processing of issues ?? I look forward to your reply….
January 24, 2019 at 14:41
January 24, 2019 at 15:45

January 24, 2019 at 17:50
Pls mr brits. Is it ok for a case number Af 34xxx to receive the mail to send documents before CN Af 21xxx if but summit their ds form same time
January 24, 2019 at 18:06
January 24, 2019 at 21:37
Dear Brit. My case 2019EU beetwen 8800 – 9900. In early December, I received an answer from KCC that scans of my documents were received and everything is ok. But until now I have not been assigned an interview, and the status “AT NVC”. What I need to do?
January 24, 2019 at 21:48
Just wait. That’s all.
January 25, 2019 at 00:21
Hi simon, quick question: are 2nl emails still being sent for March interviews? Is there a deadline for the last batch of emails to be sent, Like the end of the month?
January 25, 2019 at 01:04
Copied from article above:
“Other people waited until the beginning of the following month to get their 2NLs and ESC page update. “
January 25, 2019 at 05:36
Hi Brit! With the new process, and the notifications that they are sending, it is my understanding that once you get the email saying that the DS-260 and the scanned documents are completed and ok, you can be scheduled for an interview in the month that your CN is current. Do you think that the date for that interview, and the 2NL,depends on the KCC or on the local embassy in your country? The reason I’m thinking about this, is if it makes sense to compare when people are getting their 2NL in different countries. Obviously each case is different, but I was thinking that maybe some countries are busier than others, and that’s way some people get the 2NL earlier.
January 25, 2019 at 10:39
I think so. Exactly, it depends on the Embassies in the different countries. (I think)
January 25, 2019 at 15:05
Some embassies have made their booking systems available directly to KCC, others have not. So – KCC make the appointments but the effort/time varies. In reality a little patience is required.
January 25, 2019 at 05:51
Did I understand correctly that when I received an e-mail message with such content:
“Records indicate you have submitted a complete and valid DS-260 application for each family member, and you have provided all required documentation to the Kentucky Consular Center. Interviews are scheduled numerically based on case numbers that have completed processing. Interviews for the DV 2019 program will begin in October 2018 and conclude on September 30, 2019. Please refer to the visa bulletin at http://www.travel.state.gov to locate the current numbers being processed. This bulletin is updated after the 15th day of each month. Once an interview date has been scheduled, you will receive notification via email to check http://www.dvlottery.state.gov“.,
everything is OK with my documents and I just have to wait?

Im from albania and my case number is EU10*** .
I have recieved my confirmation email on 14 december and it said that i have completed a valid registration but i still have not taken my interview date . What do you think , can my interview be in march ?
January 25, 2019 at 15:11
Wait until the end of the month…
January 25, 2019 at 14:44
Is it possible to attend the Consular interview without first having a medical report done? I have my interview date for early March but the closest date for a medical is August. Any one heard of this before?
January 25, 2019 at 15:16
Some embassies may allow that, but August is nonsense (and would put your case at risk. The panel physician has been chosen by the embassy to provide a service that allows the visa process to work. It sounds like you did not make clear yours is a time bound DV case. Call the physician again.
January 25, 2019 at 17:19
It was via email, (I cant get an actual human at the embassy or the hospital) I put the exact date of the interview with the consular in the email and that it was for the Diversity visa. I have sent another email to clarify this. Fingers crossed its just confusion. Thanks Simon

I’m sure you can get a faster appointment than that.

Hi Brit, I received an email requesting to send more supporting documents which I did send in Nov 2018, but till now I haven’t received any notification if they received it. Should I contact them or should I resend the documents? I, m AF17*********
January 27, 2019 at 00:40
Contact them if you want.
January 28, 2019 at 06:50
Hi Brit, Thanks for answering all these question. My Case no is EU12***. I have send electron documents and received confirmation on Dec 26. My case is under 13500 and it seems that interview will be in March. Havent received 2NL yet ? How long do you think I should wait ? Should I contact KCC ? Thanks you
January 28, 2019 at 14:10
If you don’t get the 2M: in the next 3 or 4 days, then you will have an April interview.
