OK, the last 2NLs have been sent, so now we need to scrape the CEAC data to see where we are (how many visas are issued, how many are left and so on.
Even though the regions are current, we need to see how many interviews have been arranged, and how many visas have been issued, along with the AP case backlog and so on. We really NEED to see a higher number of interviews than we have been seeing.
The data is about DV2019 (not DV2020) but if some of you newbies for DV2020 could help it will lessen the workload. You will soon understand just how important this data is to understanding progress and what will happen, so please help.
Please help with the scraping effort – it is very easy and if everyone spends even an 30 minutes or an hour we would very quickly have all the data. The scraping link is here – https://dvcharts.xarthisius.xyz/scraping.html

hello Brit , after winning the lottery I changed my surname, now during the registration of the interview appointment should keep my old surname as a winner or to register with my new surname or should I keep the same notes as when I was a winner , thnx
July 1, 2019 at 22:55
If you are talking about completing your DS260, you should use your new surname. I assume you have paperwork to explain the name change.
July 1, 2019 at 14:56
My case number is 2019AF000473** i sent all the documents in jun 20. when i’ll recieve the 2 email or when i could being scheduled?
July 1, 2019 at 23:38
Obviously the ONLY 2NLs left will be sent in the second half of July. Have you checked that they are satisfied with the documents you sent?
July 2, 2019 at 06:42
Fist thank you so much.
I sent an email asking the KCC if they are satisfied with my documents, but i just keep recieving that my case is processing…!!!
July 2, 2019 at 13:49
Ask again in few days.
July 1, 2019 at 17:37
I want to make sure few point before I travel.
I received my Visa last month. I am traveling to DC tomorrow, I ll live in Maryland.
On my DS 260 I wrote that I ll live in Texas as my sponsor live there.
1.Since I ll be entering in DC as port of entry,and staying there,if they even ask me I ll tell them I ll live in MD
Can that be an issue for not going to live in Texas as DS 260 mention.
2.My other question is, I left my family behind they ll join me in 2 months .but on the DS 260 I stated that I ll immigrate with them .as the principal applicant I had to go first because of financial issue of taking the whole family together.
Can CBP question me or be an issue of not coming together as I put in my DS260.
July 1, 2019 at 23:44
1. No problem (but you might need to update your address at the airport for the sending of the GC).
2. No problem.
July 2, 2019 at 00:39
Thank you for answering.I ll update it at the airport. Sooo excited to fly in few hours from now
July 2, 2019 at 06:35
Hey Mr. Simon,
After receiving 2nls do you have to register your appointment again with the embassy or KCC wii send all appointment to them?
July 2, 2019 at 13:48
Most embassies expect you to register with a courier service. Read the instructions.
July 2, 2019 at 12:10
Hi brit, case no 2019Af 15**9.l sent my documents on June 20th to Kcc,I have called them twice to find out if they have received it,they told me it is under processing. Now my question is will I be scheduled for September interview since I have still not got ready for schedule yet or is possible I not get the ready to schedule but still can get the2nls.tnx
July 2, 2019 at 14:05
I don’t know. This is a new procedure since January so we have never seen these outcomes.
July 3, 2019 at 00:46
hello mr.Brit after i get 2nl for august i need to regisiter the interview in NVC just for myself or both because im principal aplicant or should included my husband ,because iv been married after lotttary , you understand me ? thnx
July 3, 2019 at 03:59
Both if you submitted DS260s for both.
July 4, 2019 at 10:01
Hi brit, I do not understand why last 2NLs… As you said in “Time is running out for DV2019 cases”, lasts will be between 15 – 31 july… Is not this so?
July 4, 2019 at 15:15
I don’t understand what is confusing to you.
July 4, 2019 at 23:23
@Zaza, When I read the article first time, I also got this information as you are, and thought that this is the Last Last 2NL, but than I realized that Simon meant “the last 2NL for august interviews” – not for all cases of DV2019. The last last 2NL for September will be send in July. You Don’t have to be worried, if you submitted all requirement documents by now.
July 5, 2019 at 17:01
My Visa was approved but learnt something, Consular Officer prefered Form i-864 over i-134 because I had both Affidavits of support [DV 2019]. He never even bothered to look i-134 when I asked which I should present
July 5, 2019 at 21:55
The officer you saw was an idiot.
July 6, 2019 at 11:38
Hey Simon 🙂
We’ve finished scraping. If you have time this weekend, please write some wise words..
Thank you for this wonderful site!
July 6, 2019 at 12:17
It’s a pretty depressing story. On the upside, there are plenty of visas left (over 20k, even allowing for some going via AOS). On the downside, the year will be underfilled (visas wasted) and there are certainly people that will miss out purely because they have not sent in their documents. I’ll post something this weekend…
July 7, 2019 at 12:46
Seems since some guys wanted to get rid of the Dv lottery but couldn’t so the only way was to complicate it with unnecessary procedures to reduce the numbers
July 7, 2019 at 14:45
Incorrect. The changes are well intentioned and a good change, BUT there are some implementation problems.
