This visa bulletin covers January interviews.
For those that are current, and have forms processed early enough, they can expect their 2NL in about 2 weeks from now. I know I am going to get a lot of people who will ask me this exact question – so let me say that again. 2NLs for January interviews will be sent in about two weeks time. They will include interviews for cases that have been made current in this latest visa bulletin AND backlog cases that were already current last month but the DS260 was submitted late.
We don’t know how far KCC will have progressed in terms of what submission dates will have been processed. Last month most 2NLs went to people who had submitted up to early July. However, as I always point out – processing times for each case can be different, meaning two cases submitted on the same day may not be fully processed by the same day. As a guess I would imagine most submissions up to mid to late July would have been processed in time – but once 2NLs for this month are out we will see better.
Whilst DV2015 is still processing, this is the first visa bulletin of DV2016. Read this link if you are unsure how to read the visa bulletin.
For those that cannot understand why the pace has slowed down, please read this post from a month ago that explained the backlog effect on the VB.

HI SIMON MA CASE NUMBER IS ABOUT af56000 WHAT DO YOU THINK
November 20, 2015 at 11:38
That is a high number – one of the highest for DV2016. So – there is some risk…

HI Mr Simon

You should email them, ask them to unlock your form and make the correction.

My wife has graduated from university and she has her diploma with herself but her 12 grade certificate is lost, is this a problem?

In some embassies they will accept the degree, others won’t. She should get a replacement.

Sir i submitted my ds 26o form as high school, no degree but just i got my degree. So is it necessary to unlock the form and correct my education profile as high school, degree. Actually I dont want to unlock. So will it be ok if i directly submit my certificates at my interview?

I already answered your identical question yesterday.
