Generally these come out as in batches over a period of a few hours or a couple of days at most. If you expect your 2NL and you have NOT had it within a day or two, it probably means you submitted your DS260 late.
It would be GREAT if those that received their 2NLs would add a reply to this message saying when they submitted their DS260. A survey like that helps us understand the processing time for the DS260 and let’s us understand the backlog.
*** READ THIS BEFORE ASKING WHERE IS YOUR 2NL****
Having had some feedback, it looks like DS260s submitted up to mid to late May have been processed in time for October interview. I have only heard of one June submitted case and a couple of late May cases that have not processed in time.
NOW – not all cases are processed at the same pace – some take longer than others. So – there may be some more 2NLs sent on 8/26, but if you submitted your DS260 from June or later, you are probably too late for October interviews. As a rough guess, Next month (November interviews) will probably be June submissions, and then submissions in July will be for December submissions.
Being late is not a problem – if you are interviewed in November or December and so on that is not an issue – so please relax.

I live in Canada, I applied using my born country… Thank you!
November 4, 2015 at 19:48
I doubt you will get a 2NL this month – maybe at the end of the next month – keep an eye out on the posts where I announce the 2NLs – I usually track the submission date backlog.
November 4, 2015 at 18:09
Also, how are the interviews like? Any tips or considerations?
Thank you again.
November 4, 2015 at 19:46
The interviews are extremely simple and fast – as long as you are properly prepared.
November 4, 2015 at 19:48
How can I be properly prepared?
November 4, 2015 at 19:51
Read and follow the instructions.
November 4, 2015 at 20:04

Ds260 form i email kcc to unlock my ds 260 they said we send you case to embassy we can’t unlock i can add the baby’s without Ds260 in the day of interview
November 4, 2015 at 23:33
Yes that is all exactly right. You cannot update the DS260, but the embassy will handle it.
December 16, 2015 at 10:38
I submitted my DS260(mine and derivatives) on 3rd Sept. My case number is 2016AF37xxx. Considering the pace of the 2NLs, do you think there is hope?

Don’t worry about the pace. That number is fine.

Hello Sir i am from Ethiopia and my case will be current on February. i submitted my ds-260 on may 21 my case no is 2016AF00014*** i contacted KCC and they emailed me back
Your case number is now current for interview processing. Once the interview date has been scheduled, you will receive notification via email to check http://www.dvlottery.state.gov. If you need to make changes to your DS-260 you should contact the consular section where you will be interviewed, or bring the information about your changes to your interview appointment. Because your case is ready to be scheduled, KCC can no longer unlock your application.
1. what does this means ?
2.when to expect my 2NL?
