I have added a video on my YouTube channel to explain 2NL analysis, backlog concerns and a warning to DV2019 selectees that have not yet been scheduled. Please take a look at the video to understand more about the urgency for DV2019 applicants during the final stretch of the DV year.
I will be adding more videos over the coming weeks, so please subscribe to my YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss anything.

June 15, 2019 at 03:00

Hi brit ,
I had a question i couldnt see the reply or the question so I am asking it again…can we pay the green card fee ($220) using a debt card????
June 15, 2019 at 08:42
Thanks for your efforts.
I would like to ask what does the term (no response) from charts means?
June 15, 2019 at 13:27
It means someone who was selected, but has not moved to the next stage. That could be for one of several reasons:
1. They simply never checked their win.
2. They knew they won but decided against proceeding with the process and therefore never submitted the DS260.
3. They started the process of submitting the DS260 too late.
4. They submitted the DS260 but did not submit the documents in time.

Thanks. Crystal clear.

I have a question about my visa,
I have recited three courier belonging three visas me and my two little child but when arriving at home my wife opened two of these envelopes knowing that it is forbidden to open it.
So I called for U.S. ambancy nairobi to ask if it can be sealed again he told me to send to DHL with an explanation and why she opened
my question is the how time to make to return the envelopes

I don’t really understand your question. You have to get the envelopes resealed – so do that.
June 15, 2019 at 13:06
You are really doing a great job with this blog.
Up to April 2019 I`ve been totally blind in terms of DV Process until I found your blog with all the info.
At beginning I have not been concerned about the backlog, but as time passed I realized it is more serious than I`ve expected.
Now I see that some people will miss their chance of a lifetime because of it (and probably their own lack of attention).
In my case I have submitted the documents in April 2019, DS260 in June 2018 and I am still waiting for my 2NL letter, that should be for August interview. A quick calculation shows April to August is 4 months, from June till September we have just 3 months left so for some people it may already be too late if they did not listen to your guidelines.
When I look at it now I am shocked that it could be me as well if I would never found this blog.
I hope people will have a good understanding of what you are trying to say to them after this video, I know it is not easy to deal with the DV process if you doing it first time, but from other side it may be the only time you will do it in your life.
So people hurry up!
Thanks for everything Brit

June 15, 2019 at 13:46
Send the documents again!!
June 15, 2019 at 15:15
I’m AF39xxx , ds260 submitted last year and documents sent on 25may and again 13 june , and I got nothing but the automatic reply , I called the KCC 2 times in the last month and every time they tell me that my case under processing , when I ask them about the documents they tell me that they will consider them after they have processed my ds260 , I inted to call them again today
Is there a chance I’ll never get the ready for shceduling email ?
and thank for all the help you provided , you are really helpful
June 15, 2019 at 15:54
I’m hoping that the last remaining cases will get document requests in the next week or so. If not, ask KCC again.
June 16, 2019 at 02:16
I’m aware of some cases 40xxx and above that got their ready for scheduling email , is it not based on the order of CN ?
June 16, 2019 at 03:57
All numbers are current for DV2019. Once the cases are current, high case numbers don’t have to wait for lower cases numbers.
June 15, 2019 at 17:23
If the Embassy already submitted your Visa to you and by mistake you opened the sealed envelopes, in that case what will happen , and this case is already happened before?
June 15, 2019 at 18:50
You have to take the package back to the embassy to be resealed.
June 15, 2019 at 21:25
Hi mr Simon, Am dv2020 selectee, during the Entery I typed the 1st letter of my name wrongly instead of Roland Ackerson, I made it (Poland Ackerson) should I go ahead and submit the ds260 with the right name being Roland Ackerson since all my Certificate bares that name, and how are my chances going to be like?
June 15, 2019 at 22:18
It depends on whether that is truly the only mistake, or whether there are concerns of fraud. If you are from Ghana they are especially wary of people who often have this type of “mistake”. In any case, the ONLY way forward is to correctly enter the name on the DS260.
June 16, 2019 at 07:18
You look like Winston Churchill LOL

Who was also a wise man…

Dear Brit thanks for your tips. We got our password with visa.My daughter had Japannese scholarship and she now studies in Japan. in the August we will enter USA after that she will leave to (2-3 days after) Japan for study. She will come back every summer and winterbreak. My question is: does she have to apply I-131 and get travel documentation?
Give us an advice about this.
Thanks a lot again.
June 17, 2019 at 14:16
Read the FAQ about that.
June 17, 2019 at 12:37
My CN is 2019EU25xxx. After my case number was current in April and received email from KCC to send required documents, I have submitted all required documents at the beginning of May to KCC. Will my interview be scheduled for August or September? Or no chance?
June 17, 2019 at 14:19
June 17, 2019 at 18:44
Hi Brits, my case number in 28000. As you know now we have CURRENT.
Today i got mail “Further DV Documents Required”…
Is it means that if i will send documents the visa interview definitely will be made?
June 17, 2019 at 19:31
No – there is no “definitely”, except to say you definitely won’t get an interview unless you respond to their email, so get on with it.
June 20, 2019 at 21:41
Can I make an appeal for my refused visa and how do I go about.
I completed tertiary school but I was denied a visa base on education
June 20, 2019 at 22:08
There is no formal appeal process, but if you feel you have some IMPORTANT evidence that could change their mind, you could contact the embassy. But they are not obliged to reconsider your case – you had your opportunity to show how you meet the requirements.
June 22, 2019 at 08:42
Hi Mr Simon.
I’ve been sent the ready for schedule email weeks now..n I haven’t received my interview date n time yet…. Cn 29***. Will I be schedule in July or August
June 22, 2019 at 14:38
Not July. August probably.
July 18, 2019 at 15:01
My case number is 2020AF24***. I have submitted my DS 260 in May.
1- Do I wait until the KCC sends me an email asking for documents or do I send my documents directly without delay?
2- I have seen people asking you about sponsors, and ADVIT. Does it concern DV lottery cases too? And where can I find more info on that on your blog?
3- I have submitted my DS260 with an address of a friend in the US. The problem, another person submitted the same address, is there a problem if 2 case numbers submitted the same address?
Thanks a lot.
July 18, 2019 at 15:06
2. Search my blog for I-134
July 18, 2019 at 15:58

July 18, 2019 at 16:27
Dude. Do you realize how many times you have asked me this question??
TWELVE TIMES IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS!!!!!!
If someone asked you something 12 times in fourteen days, don’t you think you would be a bit pissed off with that person?? Please behave like an adult.
July 18, 2019 at 17:44
Hahaha yes but im a bit stressed so you’re here to help … im sorry brit i apologize…
September 11, 2019 at 14:02
Hi Brit, so just thought I would share. SA35**
I received email to send kcc docs on 15 aug 2019. I submitted on the 9 sep and got email stating that it was good today- 11 Sept. I must say they are very efficient.
