More odd happenings.
The normal behavior for the release of the 2NLs is that the 2NLs are sent and CEAC is dated later – often within an hour or so of the 2NLs being sent. This month, the 2NL emails have not yet been sent, but the CEAC system is showing many cases with “in Transit” which is how the cases appear before the embassy marks the case as received.
So – if you are waiting for your 2NL, you might find some comfort by checking the CEAC data to see if you case is “in Transit”.
The technical problems appear to be not yet completely fixed, but some embassies have been “reconnected – meaning they are getting closer to fixing the entire system.

June 25, 2015 at 05:53
Hmmm – I think they may be adding some more interviews – just wait a few days and see if you get the 2NL.
June 25, 2015 at 15:09
I called kcc the nice lady on phone told me my interview will be 21 August but when I asked about the 2nl she says by the end of the month
June 25, 2015 at 15:48

The data on 24/06/2015 does not reflect the real situation with August interviews, unfortunately…
WRW is sleeping on 37 486. My CN is still AT NVC (37***, ds 16/12/2014). I called KCC again on wednesday: “the interview wll definintely be in August, everything is OK with your forms, but the date is scheduling and will be scheduled in a few days”
And MOS interviews are not updated at all (the last scheduled case is 35 671 – the july cut-off)…
June 27, 2015 at 01:51
Called kcc my interview scheduled in August ,no letter yet.EU37…..
June 27, 2015 at 07:35
Still no 2nl yet?
June 27, 2015 at 07:46
Seems as if the state department is really working hard to clear up this technical issue and are almost done,now thats some good news. http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english/news/technological-systems-issue.html
June 27, 2015 at 15:10
Yep – almost back to normal….
June 27, 2015 at 19:35
Do you think technical issues are the reason for no 2 nls yet?
June 27, 2015 at 20:50
Probably related, yes.
June 27, 2015 at 20:58
so hopefully, do you think we will see the 2nls soon, as the IT issues have almost been resolved?
June 27, 2015 at 21:03
yes most likely.
June 27, 2015 at 17:32
My CN 2015 AF 42XXX. Ifill DS260 july 2014. then unlock Feb to add USE born baby. MY cn is cuurent for Agust and I plan to AOS. Do you think I can get interviweed on time. How long does it take to processes DS260
June 27, 2015 at 20:52
DS260 processing for AoS cases is very fast – a couple of weeks. Your number is announced as being current. Have you submitted your I485 yet (early filing)?
June 29, 2015 at 07:20
its monday,anyone gotten 2nl yet?
June 29, 2015 at 14:09
June 29, 2015 at 18:03
If the system is back online why haven’t I received yet the 2NL? 🙁
June 29, 2015 at 18:43
No 2NLs have been sent yet.
June 30, 2015 at 15:44
I just called KCC and they told me that my interview will be in september (EU37*** WRW).
Last wednesday they told me it will definitely be in august.
I asked whether the delay is caused by our late ds-260 submission (dec.2014) and the operator said no, that is because of their internal processes: too many forms, a lot of current cases etc… I asked what has changed from the last week and she said nothing has changed and she doesn’t really know why that operator said it.
Such a sad story
June 30, 2015 at 16:19
They are scheduling A lot of cases – that is certainly true.
June 30, 2015 at 16:35
But why don’t they schedule them numerically? Why some embassies have got all their current cases proceeded, while the other don’t? The embassies are busy in different way, OK send me to another embassy!
Is it honest that the CN higherthan mine is already ready just because interview is in ATA, not in WRW, for example? And all the ATA cases will get their interview but the lower CNs in WRW won’t and even may not get their visas because of its limited number, taken by higher CNs… I can’t understand the logic and I don’t believe it’s fair.
June 30, 2015 at 17:41
How could they possibly enforce numeric order across all the embassies. Once cases are current, they schedule them according to the availability at the embassy. That’s it. There is no point worrying about it. Just relax and be patient.
June 30, 2015 at 07:38
Hi BRIT thanks for your great work, I wrote to KCC to know my interview date and the answer me about. I was surprise just one month to prepare my interview. So I advice everyone tout wrote them and know their Interview date.
June 30, 2015 at 15:54
If you have an early August interview – your notice could be only 4 or 5 weeks – but it should be plenty of time….
June 30, 2015 at 15:19
Its month end still no 2nl,strange
June 30, 2015 at 15:20
Hi simon,what about 2nd L for nepal fro recent current 6476 to 7150 ?can you plz suggest me till when it will be issued?
June 30, 2015 at 16:17

July 1, 2015 at 19:04
Information from KCC – 2ND L will be sent for 7-10 days!
July 1, 2015 at 21:30
That was taken from a generic response. I think it will be sooner than that!
July 2, 2015 at 06:45
i hope so
July 2, 2015 at 08:57
Hello Brit .i completed ds260 in May last year but I unlocked it in March to edit my passport number as I had lost the one in my initial application as per your advice.my cn is af522**.if I’m to become current in the next vb do you think I will get a chance to be interviewed or I unlocked my ds260 form to late.
July 2, 2015 at 21:59
The unlock won’t affect you.
July 2, 2015 at 14:38

July 3, 2015 at 14:29
Hey Simon, how much time does it take to issue a visa if the interview is successful? If am granted a visa on the day of the interview that is 26 August, is there a risk that my visa won’t be prepared on time until 30 september that DV ends? Thank you.
July 3, 2015 at 14:58
Normally it is available within a week or so.
July 29, 2015 at 06:22
