The answer is simple – yes.
But if you want to understand it better, please take a look at this video.

Why won’t someone from the KCC come forward and explain the whole situation with DV2021 in a normal and transparent way? I mean if it’s game over then it is game over, right? Why is it so hard for them to say that? Why are we fortunetelling the whole thing? Or forcing them to say something with all the legal mumbo-jumbo for that matter. You know, shouldn’t be so hard to say: “no more interviews for September, end of story. go home.”
Thanks for everything anyway,
August 14, 2021 at 3:32 pm
That is not how they do things – that should be clear by now.
August 15, 2021 at 1:53 pm
Lol definitely they have a soviet way of doing things for sure.
August 12, 2021 at 5:55 pm
I’m 2021AF9k, DQ since December 2020: I live in country A, but country A has adjudicated only seven (7) DV2021. I wrote country B to accept my DV case for interview and they agreed, they told me to ask country A to transfer my case to them (country B).
But I’m confused, I have not been scheduled yet, the embassy in my country A is not prioritizing DVs. What can I do?
August 14, 2021 at 3:37 pm
Nothing. You have left it too late. The only hope now is the lawsuits.
August 14, 2021 at 11:37 am
hi, it is mid-August Now, how do you think when they will send September 2nls, or is everything (except judge’s decision) over already?
August 14, 2021 at 5:26 pm
We are close to the end, if not already there.
August 19, 2021 at 1:28 pm
I have sent the scanned documents in may2021 as they asked me. I have not yet recived an email from them to confirm that my documents are ok.Then i sent them an inquiry to know where my case stands. Yesterday they sent me this reply :
Thank you for your inquiry.
An interview for this case has been scheduled at the American Consulate/Embassy in xxx on xxx. You will receive a notification letter by email within the next 7-10 days, from email@example.com. Within 3-5 days of receiving the letter, you will be able to log into https://dvprogram.state.gov/ to verify your appointment date.

Please can you help me, i dont know what to do. Thank you
August 20, 2021 at 4:04 am
Do what it says.
August 21, 2021 at 3:38 pm
Yes, thank you. But do you think they have scheduled me an interview, or is a standart reply from them?
Thank you for you understanding and feedback ?
August 21, 2021 at 8:21 pm
Wait and see.
August 23, 2021 at 7:52 am
Dear Simon, EU2021 derivative here, also a Goh derivative. We wrote an e mail to our local embassy, asking for help regarding interview scheduling and contacting KCC on our behalf – which they did expressly. Not only that, they called my wife (principal applicant) on the phone, saying they have a capacity and we’re welcome. After providing all the data, an e-mail was sent from the embassy directly to the KCC, a day after KCC responded ….” the case listed below is not documentary qualified. If Post has available capacity, please provide it to KCC so that we can schedule documentary complete cases accordingly…” That was a shocker ! no explanation, why we are not DQ, resending files or correction request ? There are 3,4 e-mails exchanged with our IV department, and they didn’t explain anything. Can you explain it ? If I could somehow send you the docs, so that you can maybe find something we missed or did so wrong that this just happened.
August 26, 2021 at 11:44 pm
I assume you are the same Luka from Twitterworld – right – and I explained this yesterday. Let me know if it’s still unclear.
August 27, 2021 at 12:08 am
Yes, That’s me. I have written this here before the Twitter. It’s perfect clear now. Waiting for the Goh outcome. Thank you ! …and this blog is a lifesaver, even for me with 7 years of law firm history and running a legal department in an international company. ( USA – Croatia )
I was never dealing with US immigration before and have been always coming in / out US on a regular visa basis. Now, with this whole DV thing, and thanks to you I got hooked. I’d never knew for Charles, Greg, Jeff, Curtis, Raphael or Aaron, and most of all I’d never be able to join the lawsuit if it wasn’t for this blog and videos.
I can tell you this – if my case is going to be among the preserved ones from upcoming JM’s order, and if I get my visa – then I’m taking the Cali Bar once I get there.
Much appreciated ?
August 28, 2021 at 5:47 am
Yes – come to CA great place to live and awesome place to be in law.
August 25, 2021 at 4:25 pm
I’m from DV 2021. I sent an email to KCC asking if they had received my documents a month ago and they just with this today.
“Thank you for your inquiry.
The Kentucky Consular Center has not received your documents. In order to continue processing your case, all documents should be submitted as attachments to your email to ensure they are properly received. We ask that you use the following method to name and attach your files: • Your DV case number; • The full name of the applicant whose document you scanned; and • The document name or form number. For example: 2021AF00938653_John_Doe_Passport.pdf 2021AF00938653_Jane_Doe_Birth_Certificate.pdf Use your case number as the subject of the email. The maximum email size is 30MB. If the total size of your attachments is larger than 30MB, send multiple emails using your case number as the subject of each email. Please send your documents for KCC review only after you have collected all of the required documents for yourself and all accompanying family members. Send documents only to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Documents photographed or scanned with a mobile phone are acceptable, but every document must be fully legible. Illegible or incomplete documents must be re-submitted and will delay processing of your case.”
I have followed the tips in this article and all the documents are legible. The only issue I can think of is that I used this format 2021AF00938653_John_Doe_Passport.pdf instead of 2021AF00938653_John_Adams_Bary_Doe_Passport.pdf because there are four words in my full name. Should I resend the documents by including all the four names in my full name?
August 28, 2021 at 5:25 am
That would not be the problem. Look very carefully how you are sending them and make sure the subject is your full case number with leading zeros
September 3, 2021 at 6:18 pm
We’re in the range 2021AS18K, we submitted our DS-260 on June 11,2020 and we didn’t receive an email to send our documents(we were looking at the inbox and junk everyday). However, we sent them in March based on your recommendation.
I recently knew that people in my country with higher case numbers received the “submit your documents” email before December 2020! I think there is something else missing/blurry in their processing.
Note that we submitted our DS-260 after our marriage. Do you think they wanted the marriage certificate to be directly sent after completing the DS260 so they start processing it?
September 3, 2021 at 8:01 pm
Your number is fairly high, so they may not have got to your documents. Your best hope is a preservation order in the lawsuits.
September 6, 2021 at 12:44 pm
I think KCC process DQ according to ds 260 submissions and not case number. For DV 2022 I found that those who submit their ds 260 before May 13 have been asked to send their documents regardless to CN. Some people their CN is 35k have been asked to doc, and other CN less that 1000 has not been asked to send doc. Reasons behind..
September 6, 2021 at 6:20 pm
I have explained this many times. In the early days after the winners announcement there is no backlog so an early submission could easily be processed, but once there is a backlog, case number order is what drives the processing.
September 10, 2021 at 8:28 am
Hi Brit I have been asked to submit documents 3days ago, please clarify me on this. When naming the documents in the example it is written John doe but what in the case where you have more than 2 names? And also should I rename the pdf files the same way as described in their example ” John doe” ?
September 11, 2021 at 7:34 pm
September 11, 2021 at 8:25 pm
I sent my scaned document on december 2020.
A lot of times o sent inquiry emails to KCC, if my docs were ok or something missing. The only response that i had is….”Your DS-260 has been processed. You should have received, or will soon receive, an email from the Kentucky Consular Center giving you instructions to complete in order for your case to continue processing. Please follow the instructions in the email. Interviews are scheduled numerically based on case numbers that have completed processing.”
I don’t understand. Is this mormal??
Thank you for your time
September 11, 2021 at 10:52 pm
I’m guessing you have a high case number, so they never got to your documents. Your best hope is the lawsuit.
September 12, 2021 at 6:59 am
September 12, 2021 at 4:42 am

Sorry Brit for this long explanation, i’m not understanding nothing anymore.
Thank you so much for your time an support
September 12, 2021 at 1:54 pm
You will have to wait and see what happens in the lawsuit.
September 13, 2021 at 10:58 am
Hi Brit Simon greetings
How do I differentiate when naming both of my police certificates ? Or I should just write police certificate on both without indicate which country.
September 17, 2021 at 12:45 am
Use your judgement.
September 13, 2021 at 4:29 pm
Hello Brit, thanks for your efforts and help for us. My question is: DQ what means exactly? Is it manned sending the affidavit support documents with the requested documents? Or presenting the affidavit support to the embassy at the interview? I let you know that I’m in Algeria North Africa.
September 17, 2021 at 12:50 am
DQ means you have provided the documents required prior to the interview.
September 17, 2021 at 1:27 pm
Thanks sir, I’ve provided them except the affidavit support, here in Algeria they ask for it at the interview.
September 14, 2021 at 7:51 pm
My SO was selected for further processing in DV2021. Initially we prepared to get married so that we could go together to the US. Unfortunately, the DV2021 situation unfolded in such a manner that we, with a high case number, thought it exceedingly unlikely to get processed in time. Hence we cancelled the wedding for now since it’s financially very unfavorable in our country, and there is no real direct need other than immigration. However, my SO was then suddenly made DQ and invited for an interview on the same day (in late August). There is now no time to get married and process everything with the embassy before the 30th of September.
Question: do you think it makes sense to try and get a reserved visa if the judge decides he will also reserve visas in DV2021? After all, the whole ban is the reason we are in this situation now. Is there anything we can still try within the scope of the DV program this year? Or just try to get a F2A? It’s a bit of an unfortunate situation as that will take years and years. Maybe for us there is no other option to abandon the green card and wish someone else luck on it 🙂
September 17, 2021 at 4:36 am
Once his case is adjudicated that will be the end of the chance to add you. I don’t have a good suggestion other than a time machine.
September 17, 2021 at 1:41 pm
Please Mr Simon, we are at the end of the fiscal year for DV21, my file is at the NVC, I’ve received nothing yet? In case I receive nothing in the coming days: do I have the chance to be on the list of the preserved visas; I let you know that I’m not a plaintiff, I personally waited for them to do their job, because the visa is not a right, becoming a plaintiff will be logical After the expiration of the fiscal year, the NVC and KCC employers have the right to do their job, legally speaking, I think that I have not the right to sue the administration before the expiration of the delay. Thanks for your help.
September 17, 2021 at 2:08 pm
The lawsuits have to be filed and visas reserved BEFORE the year expires. As to whether non plaintiffs will get reserved visas – we have to wait and see.
October 8, 2021 at 3:38 am
Simon, you are correct in your videos about how cases are ordered. But I believe KCC’s scheduling interviews based on DQ date instead of case number is unlawful. The law says diversity visas “shall be issued to eligible qualified immigrants strictly in a random order…” [8 U.S.C § 1153(e)(2)]. The time to become DQ is not strictly random, but based on arbitrary factors like complexity of application, number of derivatives, and country of origin. Only case number ordering is strictly random. Therefore, legally, of those plaintiffs who are already documentarily qualified, the 6,914 reserved visas in DV2021 should go to those with the lowest case numbers, not those who became qualified first. DQ date must be disregarded completely, or KCC is acting unlawfully and low CNs will have grounds for appeal.
October 8, 2021 at 5:08 am
You are only taking one part of the regs into consideration. The very next line says “(3)Waiting lists of applicants for visas under this section shall be maintained in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary of State.”. And that refers to procedures about cases on waiting lists being treated in an order of DQ. This is standard among other visa types. So – I don’t think your point has any legs. But feel free to consult a lawyer.
