In the last hour KCC have pushed the button to send the remaining 2NLs for June 2019 interviews. Please refer to my earlier 2NLs announcement for more info and to read where I had pointed out this second batch would go out before the end of the month – and they did, at about 2pm in Kentucky.
Now – if you don’t get your 2NL in this batch, you will almost certainly NOT get a June interview. The next steps will be the VB (released between the 8th and the 15 of the month EVERY MONTH) and then the July 2NLs which will be sent in the second half of the month.
Just as a reminder – I believe there is a backlog of cases waiting for interviews because of the new document procedure. No case will be scheduled until the case is current, has completed the DS260 AND submitted the documents to KCC. If you have not yet submitted those documents, you must do it as soon as possible. Read about the new procedure here.
And last but NOT least. With these final 2NLs going out we need to scrape the CEAC data again. So – scrapers at the ready. Xarthisius will make the new cases available for scraping within a few hours, so please go and check the scraping instructions and help. We need to see how many 2NLs have gone out. Embassy capacity is a concern as there are now only 3 more months of interviews to be scheduled and the backlog cases will take a lot of the available interview slots.

SL embassy was closed for a while after the bombings. I believe interviews have been restarted BUT obviously there may have been a decision to delay some interviews to allow rescheduling of cancelled interviews. So – be patient.
May 2, 2019 at 16:52
Hi dear, my CN is AF18*** current for may and i didn’t receive yet the 2NLs.. i submitted the ds form on june and the documents were sent on december
May 2, 2019 at 17:04
Hi Brit. My question is about joint sponsor. We are 6 members that have the interview next month. One sponsor (husband&wife) cannot reach the limit of yearly income to cover his family and all of us. So that, the only solution is the joint sponsor (husband&wife). My question is: what form should both the sponsor (husband&wife) and the joint sponsor (husband&wife) fill out? Thanks.
May 3, 2019 at 14:10
That is fin – that is “household” income.
May 2, 2019 at 20:16
unfortunately i have lost my police certificate. i am scheduled on june.
I am on stress now. what shall i do? shall i contact kcc and bring new certificate? is the lost would be seriously considered??
May 2, 2019 at 20:19
Get a new cert and show them a copy of the one you lost.
May 2, 2019 at 22:46
Hi brit..I get the second letter ,my interview is june10 I have some personal reason so I am not able to continue my intervew.can i change my interview date..if can how?.

May 2, 2019 at 23:42
I have a pending asylum in Canada,I won a Dv lottery in 2019,my passport is currently with the Canadian immigration,
they told me to be able to have it for my interview which is next month I have to give up and cancel the asylum request
Can you advise me what to do In that case,as we know that winning a dv lottery doesn’t guarantee that your visa will be approved
May 3, 2019 at 00:40
You CLEARLY need to decide that for yourself.
May 3, 2019 at 00:50
Hi dear, My cn is AF18*** current for May.. i had sent all documents and submit the ds form on december or earlier.. but i didn’t receive the 2nls yet.. is that normal?
May 3, 2019 at 04:34
No. Contact KCC.
May 3, 2019 at 02:10
I have a question, my wife is the principal applicant. We have interview on June 20th, we did our medical on last week. My wife is pregnant and in the early stage.i.e 3 months.
In our medical she did X-ray also with doctors advice but my wife didn’t get the vaccines and doctor also not recommended the vaccines. Doctor said they will issue the medical report with next two weeks.
My question is,
1. Will it cause any negative impact on visa approval?
2. What can we do?
3. Can we get visa?
May 3, 2019 at 04:37
1. That is up to the doctor.
3. See 1.
May 3, 2019 at 05:06
Doctor says they will issue the medical report, but vaccines can’t be take. Without taking vaccinations does the embassy will approve the visa or they will hold the case?
May 3, 2019 at 05:39
Again. The doctor decides.
May 3, 2019 at 07:10
please am 2019AF20*** I emailed the kcc in april 24 asking if my documents were ok because I have not seen any message from them to confirm the validity apart from auto reply, so they asked me to re-submit the documents, I did so in April 26. my problem is, they have past my number already, please can they schedule me again, if yes please when?, is it for July interview or August. thanks
May 3, 2019 at 13:44
You will have to wait and see.
May 3, 2019 at 10:31
i think i did make a big mistake.. i have only sent the translated copies to them in December!!.. i thought they will make me know about missing documents but they didn’t.. i was current for may and i didn’t receive the 2nl yet.. should i send them all documents again or what? please help!! what should i do now??
May 3, 2019 at 12:56
Have u sent all required documents?
Did u at least receive a mail about KCC telling u your documents are ok?
May 3, 2019 at 13:10
yeah i did send them but only the translated copies not Originals.. and i think that is the problem
i only received the automated email says that kcc has received my email and is currently processing my documents.. that’s all
May 3, 2019 at 13:18
U did well.
I think the originals should be shown when u’ll get ur interview. But let the time to Brit to confirm what am saying…
I sent my translated docs and I received the automated response. 3 days after sending,I received the mail telling me my docs are ok.
It remains the interview date.
What u should do is to contact KCC if they receiced ur docs and ask them if they’re satisfied with.
May 3, 2019 at 13:26
i already contacted KCC yesterday night.. i received only an automated response again.. no response from KCC yet
May 3, 2019 at 13:28
Or call them if u can
May 3, 2019 at 13:45
yeah thanks bro!
now i only want to know if i have to just send original copies immediately even if their validity date is expired.. or i should to call them first
bcz i just got their response seems just like the first one.. reminds of required docs.. that’s all
May 3, 2019 at 14:01
Send everything again.
May 3, 2019 at 13:52
May 3, 2019 at 14:54
i called KCC.. they said that they haven’t received any documents at all
and i have to prepare new docs again bcz they won’t accept dates expired ones..
now i need at least a week or more to prepare everything again.. that sucks
thank you anyway
May 3, 2019 at 15:23
At least you know. Pay special attention to the instructions and using your FULL case number.
May 3, 2019 at 15:43
Thank you Brit!
FULL case number.. i got it 😉

May 3, 2019 at 10:49
Hello brint I would like to thank you with a sincere reply . I’m the winner of dv2019, case number 252 **, I sent the decals on April 2 and I did not have the confirmation, I also called and said that your ds260 has not been processed yet, please tell me What should I do or if I can have a problem?
May 3, 2019 at 13:53
You have to wait.
May 3, 2019 at 12:29
Sir,will you give any analysis about the updated CEAC data?
May 3, 2019 at 13:38
How many did you solve Turan?
May 3, 2019 at 21:10
Because of study i could not
May 3, 2019 at 21:28
My unconditional analysis … Eu had 3586 total cases ….. from 2 nl we understood that about 1000 nl was distributed …. were 3586 -1000 (nl June) = 2586 case waiting to be interviewed … .. There are still three months free for interview (JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER)) …. EUROPE has the capability to process these cases …. Stay calm … I have seen many cases that the interview will have in July ….. May be over 1000 cases …. Everything is in our favor
May 3, 2019 at 13:04
ALL DONE, DO NOT SOLVE ANYMORE.
CEAC data is ready for updating and publishing on the site ceac.state.gov.
May 3, 2019 at 13:06
CEAC data is ready for updating and publishing on the site xarthisius.
May 3, 2019 at 15:09
Brits thanks for all your advice. is ds-160 is filled by immigrant visa applicant? and affidavit i-134 is optional or obligatory for dv lottery winner?
May 3, 2019 at 15:20
DS160 is not for DV.
May 3, 2019 at 15:31

Now, I send my ds260 form indicating my middle name”R” and KCC send me a confirmation with my middle name on it but unfortunately my 2nl letter didn’t come with my middle name.
My sponsor ask me to spell out my middle name but on my passport is not spell out.

May 7, 2019 at 03:53
Dear Brit, please I need your help, I mailed the Kentucky if they were Ok with the documents I sent to them and this is what I got as reply.
Thank you for your inquiry.
Records indicate you have submitted a complete and valid DS-260 application for each family member, and you have provided all required documentation to the Kentucky Consular Center. Interviews are scheduled numerically based on case numbers that have completed processing. Interviews for the DV 2019 program will begin in October 2018 and conclude on September 30, 2019. Please refer to the visa bulletin at http://www.travel.state.govto locate the current numbers being processed. This bulletin is updated after the 15th day of each month. Once an interview date has been scheduled, you will receive notification via email to check http://www.dvlottery.state.gov.
Please explain to me what the mean by that because I was supposed to be scheduled for June intervie
May 7, 2019 at 05:32
You won’t get a June interview. You might get scheduled for July – 2NLs in the second half of this month.
May 7, 2019 at 09:56
Mr. Brit,last week I have received 2NL with interview details in month of June in Abudhabi Embassy. But today when I checked in ESCW site my 2NL is not appearing in the site. Instead of 2nl im getting 1st notification. This can be due to system error? Do I need to contact KCC regarding this as I have not taken a print of 2nl? Thank u..
May 7, 2019 at 10:21
May 8, 2019 at 19:23
Hello But Hope u’re good…
Is it true the DV site was hacked?
Should we worry about that?
Anytime,I try to check, the page is inacessible
May 8, 2019 at 19:24

May 14, 2019 at 16:48
I was shortlisted in the dvlottery this year. when I made my registration I used old photos. Would this be a reason for me to be denied a visa? I would like to know if there is a way to change them
May 14, 2019 at 17:13
You cannot change them. Denials for old photos are rare unless your appearance has changed significantly.
May 30, 2019 at 17:27
Hi brit. my case is EU201900020xxx i sent my Ds260 and the documents in the first week of may, after i received the email from KCC were they said that they have received documents and DS260 and the interview will be scheduled when my case number will be current, I’m still waiting is that normal? should i do anything?

May 31, 2019 at 12:35
So I should wait and see what happen, maybe my interview will be in the latest of july or first week of august?
May 31, 2019 at 14:07
Not July. August or September.
May 31, 2019 at 13:25

Does these have an impact on our chances on getting our second interview and approval
May 31, 2019 at 16:28
Of course it does!
June 7, 2019 at 16:00
I want to thank you so much for your time and information. I have been following your website for about a year, because I didn’t know anybody who had an experience with DV-Visa or the process. Yesterday (06/06/2019) I had an interview and it was approved! EU18xxx
Just wanted to thank you and say that I appreciate a lot!
June 7, 2019 at 18:03
July 7, 2019 at 16:53

July 7, 2019 at 22:06
Check again this week.
July 10, 2019 at 09:53
Hi Mr Brits ,
Thank you so much for your help concerning dv program .We are dv winners 2019. We had an interview today Wednesday 10th of July 2019 AF 29*** . All the documents the asked ,we provided plus original documents but at the end the denied us with Visas saying we were supposed to make a Police Certificates in our country of origin NOT in the country of residence. We’ve been in UAE since 2009 .
The gave us a blue Paper returning our passports back to us saying “ WE SHOULD GO BRING THE POLICE CERTIFICATES FROM OUR HOME COUNTRY BEFORE THE END OF SEPTEMBER AND OUR CASE WILL BE CONSIDER”. In that blue paper there was an email that we can get it and scan , send to them .Two working days if we like we come in person and give them the Police certificates plus the passports. We are in progress of the police certificates from home country now .
Wishing to ask SIR whether will we be considered following their strict decision.
Waiting to get a reply from you SIR and thanks in Advance.
July 10, 2019 at 18:24
So you have almost thrown your chance away because you did not read the instructions! You have been reading my blog since December last year at least – I just don’t understand why you would not take the most basic steps. You were supposed to provide police certs in BOTH your home country and current country (and possibly others).
Will they now approve you if you get the police cert? I don’t know. But get on with it!
July 10, 2019 at 19:04
So true SIR, the English was a little bit difficult to understand concerning the Police certificates. The form given was written there as temporal refusal as according to section 221 SIR.Hope all will be fine Sir.
Thanks once more
July 11, 2019 at 10:13
Thanks for all you are doing and still doing..
Please have u a theme concerning the advantages of those who won the dvlotery?
Thanks in advance
July 12, 2019 at 05:37
I have no idea what that means.
