People have started receiving their 2NLs for September 2017 interviews. This will take a few hours – and possibly even a couple of days before all have gone out.
It is important to note – these are the final 2NLs for DV2017. If you are expecting an interview and don’t get notified within the next 2 days you MUST contact KCC to see why you have not been scheduled.
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.
For those that received their interview notice, now is the time to start preparing for the interview. Gathering documents, scheduling the medical and so on. To learn how to prepare please view my guide on preparing for the interview.

Please help m, thanks in advance

1. Your selection letter has a link to the instructions. Start there.
2. That’s OK – I would have used only the current name – but it doesn’t matter.
3. No change *needed* to the DS260 – but you can unlock and update if you wish.

Kingsley please kindly WhatsApp me please 0246875171 please am also in September

I have submitted DS260 very late August 8th 2017 for case number 2017AF1XXX. Like you told me it was too late, it happened because we didn’t check our status until this August. I have contacted the KCC via phone and the lady told me that it’s of course late but to again check in couples of week.
we are a family of 3 my husband and I didn’t live outside our country and our son is only one year i don’t think we have complicated background to be checked.
however, based on your past experience, do you think there is ANY chance to be scheduled in September at last? or should we forget about it?
thanks a lot
August 9, 2017 at 14:29
I don’t know. Do what KCC told you.
August 10, 2017 at 15:37
My case # is 2017AF1XXX and the VB for Africa region for September month says current, which means, visas are available for all the remaining 2017. but…
1. It still depends on DS260 processing right?
2. what is the minimum day required for interview after receiving 2NL?
3. do you think 2NLs received at the end of August can be scheduled for end of September?
thank you so much!
August 10, 2017 at 15:42
Your case is delayed, and maybe impossible because of your late submission. That is what you are waiting for – so your questions are irrelevant. Your case is not going to follow the “normal” path.
August 28, 2017 at 13:10
Hi Birt very surprisingly we have been scheduled for September 6th for interview regardless of our very late DS260 submission of the DV 2017(you know we have completed and submitted on August 8th). God has really helped us.
1. does online embassy registration for interview is required even if we already know our interview date and time? if yes when I try the system doesn’t accept why?
2. do you think it is because our status is still “in transit” how long it takes to change to “Ready”?
3. should i wait and register online at embassy when the status changes to “Ready”?
Thanks a lot!
August 28, 2017 at 14:25
1. Yes it is required. You need to choose the options that allow you to register – but the systems vary between embassies, so I cannot instruct you.
2. Don’t worry about that. It isn’t important.
3. Well keep trying before and after it says ready.

My interview was scheduled for sep 21 2017,but I just got a call from embassy n said ur interview is on 1 week of September…
Can I change my sponsor now?
August 10, 2017 at 14:01
Yes, but you can’t change details on the DS260 – so just discuss it at the interview.
August 21, 2017 at 03:13
Your feedback and way forward are very helpful to every one who are going to face interview.
I have one query on marriage certificate.
My marriage certificate is in both language that are Nepali and English (in on one page). The information regarding issue of Citizen of my wife (bride) and mine (bridegroom) is fine in Nepali version But in English version, there is typo error that is citizen ship No and issue date of bride is written on place of bridegrooms and citizenship No and issue date is written on place of bride.
My interview date is 1st week of Sep, 2017.
Typo error of Citizenship number and issue date date will create problem in interview or not?
Hoping your response soon
August 21, 2017 at 04:12
I doubt it will be a problem.
August 21, 2017 at 16:54
I am not clear about your answer. It meas we are on safe or on problem?
We have also translated copy of marriage certificate in English and certified by Nepal Notary Public Council. Is it works or not?
August 21, 2017 at 17:06
our marriage certificate have two part, upper part is in Nepali language which is correct and lower part is on English language (except citizenship number and issue date). We have also prepared translated copy of marriage certificate based on Nepali language which is correct and certified by Nepal Notary Public council.
Does it works or not?
Waiting for your response.
August 21, 2017 at 17:31
I just answered this – don’t repeat the questions.
August 21, 2017 at 17:29
My answer means I don’t think there twill be a problem – but I cannot be 100% certain.
Take the translation you have.
September 9, 2017 at 07:12
What is the meaning of visa bulletin Current ? ( For e.g. September Visa Bulletin Current for all region) ( For Asia latest No 5500 in May)
Is that mean later AS 5501 cut off( don’t get interview)?
I really don’t understand.
Thank You So Much
September 9, 2017 at 11:40
Current in that context means all remaining numbers could get an interview – ALL – including those above 5500.
September 9, 2017 at 15:06
Thanks for your reply
