This visa bulletin covers March 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 March 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 late August/early September(and a few in mid September). 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 September, and even early October  would have been processed in time – but once 2NLs for this month are out we will see better.

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 months ago that explained the backlog effect on the VB. People should also read my analysis posts over the last week or so, and catch up with the CEASC data that I have published.
