This visa bulletin covers February 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 February 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 July (and a few in early August). 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 Brit, When checked with KCC on my Status they mentioned that
“Your forms have been received and pending further embassy review for the continuation of your visa processing. Interviews are scheduled numerically based on case numbers that have completed processing” what does this mean?
My Case # is AS5**. Submitted on August
December 27, 2015 at 05:24
You should get your 2NL in the next week.

Hello Brit! I just receive my 2NL. CN SA 7xx. Ds260 was completed on September 2th.
December 29, 2015 at 15:09
Dear Brit, I am preparing the docs for interview and registering my daughter for a DHL (express post) but the system asks for the passport number. In the DS-260 is her old passport number. Should I write the old passport number( the number in DS-260) or the new one? Thank you and kind regards!
December 29, 2015 at 15:54
December 29, 2015 at 15:56
Thank you Brit but the new one doesn’t correspond with ds-260? Do you think it would be not a problem?
December 29, 2015 at 16:44
Current in Europa – April. But you do not believe it. ((((
December 29, 2015 at 17:27
Hi Sloner! I fully expect EU to be current (and OC) – there is no doubt in my mind. I don’t think we will see current for April interviews, but perhaps as early as May. However, it is obvious that EU was underselected.
