2NLs are starting to be sent for September interviews (DV2019). Please note – I am saying STARTING to be sent, some 2NLs will be sent right up until the end of the month.
This relates to DV2019, and does not concern DV2020 in any way.
Please also understand that 2NLs are only sent to cases which are current, had submitted their DS260 so that processing has been completed on that AND they have sent their documents some time ago. If someone only sent their documents in the last week or two, that was probably not in enough time to get on the list to be scheduled this month. Given that this is the final month we have to wait and see whether many cases will have been unable to be scheduled.
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!
VERY IMPORTANT. 2NLs will be sent during the remainder of the month. If you do not get yours today – no need to freak out, just wait. There is no need to ask me or anyone elseabout specific regions or countries, assume any country or region could have 2NLs as late as the last day of the month (last day in the USA, not where you live).
Also, you will not get the 2NL if you have not submitted your DS260 AND your documents to KCC AND your case number is not current (lower than the VB number for your region). If ANY of those three things are not true you will not get the 2NL, and there is no need to ask me about that – it should be clear (especially as I have repeated this information many times before and a couple of times in this article).
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. You log in to the ESC page with your original confirmation code (from when you entered the lottery.

Can you Please tell me having a interview on September 28 risk involves? Because kcc told me my interview will be September 28.
July 30, 2019 at 21:14
Well the risk is only if you go unprepared to the meeting OR if they decide they need some additional background checks. There will be NO time for any of that.

July 30, 2019 at 20:24
Hallo Britsimon. As I submitted my ds260 i added my husband around october last year, for i had entered the lottery as single(i got married after the lottery). I got 2 confirmations upon completion. I received my 2nl, but on beneficiaries it lists none, the interview is just for the principal applicant. How do i go about this? Why is he not listed? Is it a common error? Have you heard of this before? Advice please
July 30, 2019 at 23:26
It’s normal. Take a screenshot of BOTH DS260s to the interview and medical so that they let you in to the embassy. You ca also email the embassy to make sure they know.
July 30, 2019 at 20:36
Just received my 2nl this evening for September interview.Am so greatful for your endless interssessions by words of advice,caution,brilliant proposal and educating us on how to go about our cases…..You are a wonderful driver leading this long journey.

July 31, 2019 at 06:58
Once they confirmed the interview date for you then you will surely receive it by the close of the day , keep hope alive .
July 31, 2019 at 00:12
I have not received my date yet for the interview I am worried?
July 31, 2019 at 01:05
maybe you have e-mail so check 2NL by your first and last names; date of birth … on the website https://dvlottery.state.gov
July 31, 2019 at 01:31
I I don’t know how to check it
July 31, 2019 at 07:47
go to ” https://dvlottery.state.gov/ ” and do as you did 1st time and find that the letter “You have been randomly selected for further ……” has changed by the letter “This is the official notice for your application for ………. Interview Appointment
CONSULATE GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES

July 31, 2019 at 12:25
Hi Brit. I met a girl yesterday who got her 2NL for September too but the agent who did her original entry attached himself to the girl like couples but when 1NL was out the boy or agent check her case and inform the girl that she was selected and that he mistakenly entered the case as couple and that they can go ahead and make a married certificate to continue the case. The girl refused the option and threatened to take the matter to the police, that was when the agent gave her the details of the case and she did send her ds260 as single.
Can she call kcc , embassy to inform them about the agent’s name in her or take the matter to the interview?
July 31, 2019 at 21:06
So – the original entry was made as married – right? In that case denial at interview is a risk. She can write to KCC or the embassy, but the risk will remain.
July 31, 2019 at 12:41
Not necessary cause she’s already submitted her DS260 so I don’t think she need to call the embassy.
July 31, 2019 at 20:24
July 31, 2019 at 12:54
If it`s possible and you agree, please share any information or post to inform people that we need scrape in the website of dvcharts, it`ll help us to see the last situation, possible final visa numbers.
July 31, 2019 at 21:08
Yep – tomorrow.
July 31, 2019 at 12:54
2019AF31***, received our 2NL yesterday, interview is scheduled for the 12th September. Simon, thank you for all your support and calm during this crazy process. Will keep you updated on how it goes
July 31, 2019 at 18:38
I have a worry on my passport , applicant name and other DV documents my second name is written Laurence with a ‘U’ Whereas on my high school certificate it’s written as Lawrence with ‘W’ . Will that be a problem at the interview ?
July 31, 2019 at 21:41
As long as you entered it correctly in the DS260, no.
August 1, 2019 at 07:20
thank you for your support and advice, I am dvistes 2019 and now I have my interview scheduled for September 13 but I wonder if here in Morocco we should confirm our appointment?
if there is a 2019 dvist who has already taken his interview hard enough that he informs us about it.
August 1, 2019 at 08:56
No need to confirm your appointment. just go to the embassy the day of the interview as i did
August 1, 2019 at 16:09
August 4, 2019 at 08:36
Thank you very much Rachid .. I have another question
As for the documents, I want to know
The documents I submitted to the kcc say the criminal record of my home country which has a validity of 3 months expired so I have to renew or send as I have at the moment??
Tell me if it takes into account the validity date of the documents?
August 4, 2019 at 14:45
I recommend sending the police certs and then in some cases renewing the police certs to take to the interview (taking BOTH versions to the interview).
August 8, 2019 at 19:00
i’m morocco, can you give me you e-mail or WatsApp à cette mail: [email protected]
August 1, 2019 at 13:30
Read the instructions specific to the embassy!!!
August 1, 2019 at 09:06
Hi brit,tnx a lot for ur support.i got my 2nl yesterday but I have a question to ask.On my original entery I made a mistake in the spelling of my name Lovelass instead of Lovelace but on the DS 260 I corrected it and all my documents have the correct spelling.Do I need affidavit of support from Court to attach it to my documents or it will not creat any problem for me.thanx
August 1, 2019 at 13:39
Up to you. If you are being literal about the mistake, it sounds like a deliberate mistake in the entry, designed to allow multiple entries. Since it sounds suspicious I would not be surprised if they had concerns.
August 1, 2019 at 13:34
A FRIEND OF MINE SAID SHE SENT DOCUMENTS ON 30TH JUNE AND RECEIVED CONFIRMATION THAT HER DOCUMENTS WERE OKAY. UNFORTUNATELY, SHE DIDN’T GET 2NL.
DOES SHE STILL HAVE A CHANCE?
HER CASE NUMBER IS 2019AF38***
August 1, 2019 at 14:48
I suggest two actions,call Kentucky and ask position on her case and 2,log in her web to check if its there..
August 1, 2019 at 15:30
My husband is the main applicant. We have received our 2NL. My middle name on my birth certificate has a single L. My passport has my middle name spelt with LL. All my legal documents have it spelt with LL. However for some reason my DS-260 has my middle name spelt with single L. What issues will I face at the interview?
August 1, 2019 at 20:23
Should not be a problem. The “for some reason” is because you or your husband entered it that way.
August 1, 2019 at 19:36
Have KCC finished sending 2nl for September interview or it will continue till the end of August for 2019 caseRs
August 1, 2019 at 20:51
I cannot be certain.
August 1, 2019 at 21:36
Brit,normally by the end of July 2019,you would have brought an article saying no more 2nl’s or let’s start scrapping. Have kcc changed the process why you have not been able to bring any article or what.reply.
August 1, 2019 at 22:01
August 4, 2019 at 08:43
Bjr to all and much to you Mr. Brit,
if anyone has any information about how or steps to follow for an interview in Morocco let him wave to me because I need information for the smooth running of my interview … 2019 dvistes in Morocco ‘212606601392 WhatsApp . We are peris for lack of information then those who have already had to go through this stage keenly let him wave to us. Thank you for your support.
August 4, 2019 at 14:46
So the blind are leading the blind. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. You should read the TONS of interview experience stories here.
August 13, 2019 at 10:35
it’s to follow their experience but I just wanted to know if in morocco someone was forced to validate his interview because there are some who say to have validated and others say no so I’m confused that’s why I wanted just know through the one who has already passed his glimpse otherwise I read the examples of interviews on your page ..
August 13, 2019 at 13:52
Just get the I-134 and stop worrying!
August 6, 2019 at 00:31
Hello Brit !
1. I received 2NL couple of weeks ago but CEAC still shows “ In Transit “ . Do I have to worry ?
2. My sponsor is different from the person I used the address on DS260. Is that ok?
Thank you for your response!
August 6, 2019 at 01:00
1. Perhaps you should worry about your short term memory since you already asked this. https://britsimonsays.com/ceac-system-ready-for-2019/comment-page-2/#comment-194454
August 6, 2019 at 02:12
Lol to be honest I didn’t see your first answer.
August 7, 2019 at 10:32
Thanx BRIT Once again. Am a2019af00044xxx , I ‘ve already received my 2nl, done medical and given my x-ray CD +vaccination certificate. Everything went well as the doctor told me.now where will this x-ray CD needed ?. My interview is on 9th September.
August 7, 2019 at 14:17
You provide the medical at the interview.
August 9, 2019 at 15:27
My wife and I was selected for the 2020 DV program but from the previous entrant during the time of playing in last October. My date of birth was not correct from the entrant for example ( July/05/1990) is change to (July/05/1992) it is only the year that was temper with. With me not being the principal applicant what is needed to be done to solve with time still ahead.
August 9, 2019 at 15:31
There is some risk with that, but typically as long as it is correct in the DS260 it would be OK.
September 9, 2019 at 15:17
How can i check if a 2nl was send to me
September 9, 2019 at 19:11
Read the FAQ.
August 12, 2019 at 07:38
Hi brit please I gave birth to a baby after submitting my DS260. But when the kcc asked for my documents I also sent the passport and birth certificate of the new baby stating to the kcc that it is my new baby. my question is following. 1-the new baby my no DS260 what to do? I must try to fill a DS260 or I simply go to interviews with his documents.
August 12, 2019 at 12:36
You should ask KCC to unlock your DS260 to allow you to add a DS260 for the child (and add the child to your own DS2600.
August 13, 2019 at 04:37
Tthank u brit my interview is schudele in septembre is it a problem if I unlock my ds260
August 13, 2019 at 14:09
You cannot unlock at this time.
August 13, 2019 at 07:44
I am 2019 dv winner with case number 2019AF8**. My interview is on September.
My problem is when my exams results were released, the registration officer mistakenly added a letter to my middle name. The correct name is owusuaa and the registration officer made it owusuwaa.
Since consular officers in American embassy in Ghana are very strict, can you please advise me on this?
Thanks in advance.
August 13, 2019 at 13:35
If that is the only mistake in an otherwise excellent case – that should be no problem.
August 13, 2019 at 15:55
August 27, 2019 at 18:21
Thanks so much mr britsimon for your great job. Now my interview is in 9 sep ,is it possible to have a co -sponsor if the other one does not met the requirements needed? Kindly waiting for your answer please sir.
August 27, 2019 at 19:21
It cannot be a “CO” sponsor – you should have ONE sponsor that meets the requirements.
August 30, 2019 at 13:26
Hello Brit thanks for all u have done for use i have been scheduled in the second week of September but while arranging my documents I just discovered that one of my mothers name was wrongly spelled on the non conviction i sent to Kcc in May instead of LIMUNGA they wrote LUMUNGA. I now have a new one since the old one got expired.Will it pose a problem for me since i will be presenting the two at the embassy.please your advice will be appreciated .
August 30, 2019 at 14:08
It should not be a problem.
August 30, 2019 at 17:34
Thank You Brit God Bless You
September 2, 2019 at 18:50
Sorry Mr britsimon for the disturbance once more , is a joint sponsor allowed in form i 134 for dv winners ?pliz help.
September 2, 2019 at 19:33
If you mean a second person because the first person does not earn enough, then the first person is not a good sponsor.
September 3, 2019 at 13:35
Hi Sir. I was asked to bring evidence from my sponsor form 134 . How can I proceed ?
September 4, 2019 at 00:44
Provide the evidence they are asking for.
September 3, 2019 at 20:31
Sir, how do you do? Would you please tell me when my interview may take place. My CN is 2020AF00048xxx.
September 4, 2019 at 00:59
September 8, 2019 at 20:05
Hi Sir . Is a scanned or mailed copies of i-134 and taxes return accepted? Or I must bring the originals.
September 12, 2019 at 16:25
Hi BritSimon, my interview was on September 5 2019.
After the interview the CO collected my passport and educational certificates. One of them was a result slip. The CO has put the case into AP. She said she was going to verify the result slip. And they will call me later.
Since September 30 is the deadline for dv 2019, Please with your experience, do I still have a chance?
My passport and all educational certificates are with the Embassy.
Thank you in advance for your patience.
September 12, 2019 at 19:50
Yes you still have a chance until September 30. Now you just wait.
September 18, 2019 at 12:51
Hi to all, I come by this note to share my recit …..
My interview took place at the Embassy of the USA in casablanca in Morocco, 2NL received on 30 July and meet at the embassy on 13 September at 9am.
Very early in the morning, my wife and I and my son woke up around 5:00 in the morning and we didn’t want to be late. We arrived at the embassy at about 7:30 this way and we lined up… At about 8am the controls begin, first control, passport+2NL+photo
and check the bags physically, then second check complete search and requisition of laptops and any device!
We now go into a room where there are several windows. I was called after 35 minutes at the window to free myself of the amount 990 dollarsfor us 3 what makes 9654dh
After another 40 minutes my name was expected at window 4 to place the documents and checks….
After 25 minutes at counter 6 we come back to wait for the actual interview, after 15 minutes my name was heard at counter 4 . My son slept with him after the window 6
CO: Good morning
Me and Mrs: Hello everyone smiling
CO: raise the lines and swear ….
Me and mrs: xxxxxxx
CO: What did you do after graduation?
I: xxxxx xxxxx
CO: What did you study?
Me: xxxx xxxxx
CO: What are you doing right now?
CO: Are you going to the USA?
I: xxxx xxxxx
CO: Who is your sponsor to you? ” a friend, a brother or what?
Me: A friend of mine
CO: A friend how?
Ms Speaks: provides more details xxxxxxx
CO: What are you going to do to the used ones?
CO: All jobs labas are legaux laughter.
CO: How did you meet your wife?
I: xxxx and I was interrupted by the lady who continued
Mme: gave more details and he stared at me to see if it was true but all was natural from where he and my wife remained in exchange as if they had known each other for a long time… Following their exchange he takes a blank sheet on which he puts my case number and says
“okay! I don’t have much to ask you again there I will give you this sheet and if I have something to ask you there I will give you a signal
Our interview lasted only 2 to 3 minutes ….
I got a call on the 17th from the embassy for a question
CO: In which centre you took your exam
I: xxxxxxx xxxxxx
CO: Given the short time, we will move quickly to manage your file as quickly as possible .
Since then I’ve been waiting Mr Brit
Just a little stressed because I can’t wait to be in a real place!
Thank you for your advice Mr Brit this has been helpful …..
September 18, 2019 at 16:03
October 1, 2019 at 12:04
Hello Mr. Brit
My status changed to Posted on September 25 and until then I have not yet received my passport and that of my wife and my son, I called the courier service of the US Embassy in Morocco ARAMEX but I was informed that passports are not yet at their level or I’m wondering right now ….
What can you tell me?
Thank you for situating me!
October 1, 2019 at 14:20
Just be patient.
September 25, 2019 at 19:18
Hello sir Brit i have a worry. My visa was approved on the 17th of September and was as keV to come get my passport and VW’s packet on the 19th but when I came i was told mine was not printed and so asked to come back on the 26th.Now my worry is dv2019 ends on the 30th of this month will it pose a problem if visa approved has not been issued by the 30th. Your kind response sir will be appreciated sir bc my ceac status is still showing ready whereas it has visa has been approved.
September 26, 2019 at 03:46
It must be issued by the 1st October – otherwise it cannot be approved.
September 26, 2019 at 15:21
What happens if the status check shows “issued” but the embassy has not called you to pick up your passport and packet yet and Monday is the 30th of September?. Will that affect you in anyway?
September 27, 2019 at 00:10
That would be OK. You would pick up the visa in the first few days of October.
September 27, 2019 at 22:16
No problem to pick up the already issued visa just after October 1.
