Some people are reporting receiving their 2NLs for January interviews. It will take a few hours – and possibly even a couple of days before all have gone out.
The email itself has no useful information. It simply tells you to check the ESC site for the interview details. Some will find the ESC site is not ready, those people should try again after a few hours.
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.
Please add your first submission date, and if you unlocked please add that resubmission date and the data you changed. That is helpful for all.
Now – if you do not get your expected interview, please come back here and read updates to this page to see the feedback I will have received.
Based on last months feedback, we know that December interviews went to those people that had submitted up to the end of June or early July. Hopefully this month we will see the rest of July, and perhaps some early August submissions. I would like to hope the backlog will reduce either this month or next month as the greatest volume of DS260s will have been processed by that time.
By the way – these 2NLs are going out quite early. Some months have waited until the end of the month for 2NLs.
**** UPDATE *****
It looks like most DS260 submission dates were up to the end of July. This represents about 1 month movement in the last month – about the same pace as before.
