Morning all – I slept well last night and took a long walk on the beach. I hope you all are rested too. I took Curtis’ advice and I have been breathing and drinking water. 🙂 I suggest you all do the same. This has been a stressful time and I can see some of you are wound up like watch springs. So first. Breathe. Relax. Take a moment, take a walk.
Sometimes we need to win a war in small battles. That is what happened last night, we won an important battle, but the war is not over, and not everyone will make it. Make sure you understand that for a start. The goal was always to get as many people as possible through, but we have always assumed we wouldn’t get everything we wanted.
As I mentioned last night, I am thrilled that we made some progress and got an order to keeps hope alive. However, exactly how that will work is not clear yet, and I am concerned that you will all take little pieces of info, mix it all up, and make up 20,000 different versions of the truth. I am not in a position to give perfect clarity yet. Nor are the lawyers. They need time to interpret the order, they will be speaking to the government lawyers and the government will also be deciding how to implement the order. I think it will take several days to know where we stand. So – be ready for that delay and please allow us the time to respond accurately. So – if I direct you to this post, that is what I mean – WAIT! PLEASE!
For those that got visas issued prior to the Fiscal year deadline, firstly, many congratulations. You all worked hard, you pushed, you scrambled to make it to appointments and I have seen some incredible stories of struggles, and people helping and supporting each other. It fills my heart. For those that have been issued there are many questions. The embassies have caused much confusion with various formats of annotations on the visas. These visas sometimes mention an exception to a proclamation, but it is not clear whether the issuance of the visa itself was the exception (but the visa holder is still subject to the proclamation) OR whether that means the visa holder is exempted from the proclamation. That will need to be clarified – but I can say this.
The immigration ban remains in force until December 31. The only cases which are supposed to be exempt from the ban (i.e. could enter prior to the Dec 31 date) are those people who had visas prior to April 23, and recently got a re-issuance of that visa. That was described clearly in the first order.
The 14 day quarantine regional bans are also still in force. I’ll refer to them as the Schengen bans, although more countries are affected by similar bans. There was a second part of the order on September 14 that clarified that visas could be issued while the Schengen bans were in force, BUT AGAIN, the terms of those bans are still in effect. That means that if someone were not affected by the immigrant ban, they would still have to be outside of the Schengen bans area for 14 days prior to entering the USA. However, in practice, BOTH the immigrant ban AND the Schengen bans could both apply to you.
Now, it is also possible that Trump gets re-elected, and if he does he is likely to extend the immigrant ban (10014/10052) beyond December 31. If he does people holding visas will still be affected, but of course the legal battle is not over yet, so it’s possible we could find ways to block that. Indeed, there is a current lawsuit trying to do just that. So – let’s wait and see how that goes. Those of you that watched the first presidential debate will have seen Trump behaving like a petulent child. He did himself no favor with his idiotic performance. Of course a small minority of people probably liked what he did, but that minority is weakening daily. As long as Trump continues to behave like a fool, and as long as Biden takes the high road and stays alive, we should be seeing a Biden win (eventually, after some more lawsuits, possibly).
Lastly about the chances of being able to enter the USA at the moment. I am sure some people will be reporting that they entered the USA and activated their visas, even though the ban should not have allowed that. However, there is such confusion at the moment, that it would not surprise me at all if people managed to enter the USA and become LPRs during the period of the ban. I am not trying to encourage you to try, I’m just saying that some will try, and some will succeed.
Over the next few days we will figure out the terms of the extension and the implementation. WE will try and figure out how to tackle each case, each embassy that hasn’t helped, every scenario. But all that will take time.
So please, take note of what I am saying here. Try and hold your questions for now, there are no answers yet for many of the questions. Just wait, breath, and drink water.

HI CONGRATULATIONS BRITT. GOOD JOB.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE WINNERS OF THE DV 2021. WHEN WE SHOULD ACT LEGALLY.
October 1, 2020 at 18:43
What about visas without annotation?
What’s that mean?
October 1, 2020 at 21:24
Nothing special. Same rules apply.
October 1, 2020 at 18:46
Thank you Brit for your being honest ! You are awesome! I hope that we will win!
My visa just issued on September 28. I want to try to enter the US before Dec31. I think I will succeed!
October 1, 2020 at 21:23
Please let me know how that goes!
October 2, 2020 at 06:55
October 1, 2020 at 18:54
Thank you Mr BritSimon. You AND all others lawyers are heroes for all DV2020 winners.
I am also waiting for entry to USA, we pray and hope that one day we will enter to USA very soon, if you and AILA, JCA & Court Morsion lawyers keep their outstanding support as well as have been kept yet.
Thank you again.
October 1, 2020 at 18:57

Thank you Simon for your efforts, I’m one of the winners back in 2015 and you helped us a lot and I’m here in the USA now I can understand everything you say.
Thank you again and I wish all the best for every one
October 1, 2020 at 21:23
Thanks for saying hi after all this time!
October 1, 2020 at 19:01
Thank you so much Mr Brit Simon! You are our heros! Hope we will fight for dv2021 as well very soon.
October 1, 2020 at 19:03
Hello Brit! Thanks for the update on the judge’s order.
We understand that it will take some time to digest the order and come up with a clear actions. However, there are already some confused interpretations spreading on the internet related to how those 9095 visas will be delivered.
Some lawyers are saying that people need to contact Gomez and others in order to get into some kind of list, because only Gomez and others from the team will be able to help to schedule interviews.
In our understanding the order states that Gomez case becomes class action that represents all DV winners, who did not yet get their visas, right? If yes, that means all DV winners (no matter if he/she is a plaintiff or not) can pursue KCC/Embassy on their own to get scheduled for interview, right?
Thanks in advance for your answer.
October 1, 2020 at 21:22
Gomez as a class covers all, yes.
October 2, 2020 at 02:02
Thank you Brits
That means AILA those of us filled form becomes GOMEZ we are all covered? just want to get confirmed please…
October 2, 2020 at 23:06
The visas that are reserved could be used by ANY case. Obviously not everyone can be helped because 9k is too few visas.
October 1, 2020 at 19:28
After a long trip from Cordoba to Buenos Aires of 700 km in a taxi, because there aren’t flights or buses working in Argentina, I could go to the interview and finally, today I picked up my passport with the visa printed. It has been a fight, I’m happy but with a lot of stress, I need vacations right now…
THANKS, A LOT, BRIT, U ARE A HERO WITHOUT CAPE.
October 1, 2020 at 21:21
October 4, 2020 at 16:49
Wow, 700km taxi ride- are even buses affected by COVID? It’s interesting- I travelled to Buenos Aires/El Calafate, Patagonia around this time last year, around a month after finding out I won the DV 2020 lottery. Still clearly remember walking around beautiful El Calafate thinking, ‘If I could learn to speak Spanish and get a job here, Argentina would be a nice place to immigrate to!”
October 5, 2020 at 21:44
I have cousins in BA on my wife’s side. I always think of it as a great country, at some time in the past…
October 1, 2020 at 19:29
Lawyers are celebrating! I am not seeing this as a victory. They got third what they asked for. Don’t get me wrong, they did an amazing job defending people they never met and for free, but they only won (third) of the case. I would say they had earned a third of champagne bottle! But thanks to them anyways.
I have relative out there who now have no hope given their documents are still never looked at and the embassy at their country is closed. Really wished they could come by next year.
October 1, 2020 at 21:21
Has it not occurred to you that they asked for 30k, knowing they could not justify that. Did you know that we got 6000 visas issued since September 4?
This was a great win. Sorry you have to look at the glass half empty.
October 1, 2020 at 19:34
is it possible that if JOE BIDEN wins, gives us an extension for DV 2020?!
October 1, 2020 at 21:18
October 1, 2020 at 19:37
Hello Brit, my cn is 221 ** I received confirmation of documents on March 4, how many chances do I have for an interview, I am part of the EU region
October 1, 2020 at 19:40
Hey Ana, they have to send congratulations not just a confirmation. “You can send a mickey mouse and get that confirmation”, Brit.
October 1, 2020 at 21:18
October 1, 2020 at 20:18
No words sir thank you for your endless effort
October 1, 2020 at 20:19
The way you and the team of lawyers have worked for us has been heart-warming. I might not get the visa, but this experience has motivated me to think beyond myself. Have a purpose beyond our own interests. You’re incredible Brit, loads of prayers and wishes for you. I’ll be making a donation as soon as I can afford one. And I’ll be referring you to every single person I know who is applying for DV. Have a blessed life ahead.
October 1, 2020 at 21:16
Thanks for the kind words!!
October 1, 2020 at 20:23
Thank you sir for everything.
Trump seem to be the bad guy, i knw the man was bad but i never thought he was going to be my problem
October 1, 2020 at 20:34
Thanks for the update Brit. You are one In a million.Thanks for everything you have done for dv 2020….God bless you abundantly and expand ur territories
October 1, 2020 at 20:34
Hi Brit, many thanks for your service. I got a quick question. I have planned my wedding for this December from months now. And I got my DV 2020 visa issued before 30th Sep (as a single). If I got married by this December and try to enter USA, it’s not an issue right? What do you think about the best way to get Visa for my spouse?
October 1, 2020 at 21:15
No problem, but you will wait around 2 years for the spouse visa.
October 1, 2020 at 21:48
Regarding this, would the beneficiary of that visa have to wait outside the United States for those 2 years approximately?
October 2, 2020 at 22:43
October 1, 2020 at 20:37
Oooh my God !!!!!
Yeah dear Brit !!!, that is no really easy to have a deep breath and relax with these stuff on the table…
So my simple and unique question:
why courageous judge Mehta didn’t make things simple with simple terms that could be simply understood by all (instead of only scholars experts of immigration) ?.
October 1, 2020 at 21:13
I can’t read his mind.
October 1, 2020 at 20:40
My little second question:
From the ceac data, it appears that about 7,000 dv 20 are “ready”.
Question: are those people ready to be interviewed in the next days/weeks, or those people might be part of the court granted 9095 next visas to issued.?
Thank you Brit for the light on this.
October 1, 2020 at 21:13
These would be part of the 9095 perhaps, but many of those won’t appear for their interviews anyway.
October 2, 2020 at 10:18
If they don’t appear for their interview then the spot from the 9095 stays open?
October 3, 2020 at 00:51
October 2, 2020 at 10:20
If 7000 are ready, this means their documents are processed or submitted? and if they are already processed this means there is only 2k left to process and get an interview?!
October 2, 2020 at 12:49
What is your CN bro?
October 3, 2020 at 01:00
I explain this in plenty of FAQs. Please read that.
October 3, 2020 at 01:00
By the way – what is your case number range/region.
October 1, 2020 at 20:52
Hi Brit! Thank you a lot for all the things you are doing!
I have a (maybe stupid) question. Is it possible to get to the immigration officer to get the stamp on the visa that makes one an LPR WITHOUT the actual entering to the US? I think it would be OK for a lot of people to just make sure that their visas will be not affected by further possible bans
October 1, 2020 at 21:16
Thank you very much for your answer !! We are very pleased that someone is listening to us and trying to do something !!!! Once again, many thanks to you that you are!
October 1, 2020 at 22:00
Thank you for keeping us informed in this difficult situation, my question is the following: the winners who already had the documents processed but the appointment for the interview had not yet arrived, do we have any possibility ????
October 2, 2020 at 22:46
Maybe – it is unclear how cases will be prioritized when processing starts, BUT it will be a long time until we know.
October 1, 2020 at 22:01
Hola Brit muchas gracias por todo su apoyo increíble,
Soy ganador del dv2020 de la region de Sur América, cubano y esperaba fecha para mi cita, mi caso aún se encontraba en el kcc.
Crees que aún tenga alguna posibilidad de que pueda ser entrevistado en guyana dentro de las 9095 visas otorgadas ??? o aún es prematuro tener esta respuesta ???.
October 2, 2020 at 22:46
You have to ask questions in English.
October 1, 2020 at 22:26
Hi Simon, just letting you know for reference that our visas were initially issued on March 11 and re-issued on September 30 by the U.S. Consulate in Sydney. The annotation in the IV states ‘Not Subject to PP 10014’. Thought you might like to know the exact wording if you weren’t aware already. Cheers
October 2, 2020 at 22:47
Cool. In that case, the embassy is correct with the annotation. I would advise using the visa early – and if you like you can enter and leave the USA immediately.
October 1, 2020 at 22:48
29th of September 2020 makes one of the historical days in my life, got my visa at 2:00pm. Many thanks and appreciations to Britismon for your tireless efforts (from Liberia)
October 2, 2020 at 22:49
October 3, 2020 at 19:48
Congratulation my Liberian brother/sister ! What is your case number? I’ m also a dv2021 winner my case number is 32***
October 1, 2020 at 22:51
Hello Brit ,
today i received sms to pickup my passport , so my case was in AP and the embassy just returned my passport and they said the deadline ends !
(We’re sorry but at this time, DV2020 processing is complete, so if you were not contacted and your case is refused and the decision is final.
U.S. Embassy Algiers)
so in night i checked my case number in website and get ( Your search did not return any data. ) !
what dose it mean ?
do i have any chance ?
October 2, 2020 at 20:45
Quand as tu dépose ?? Et c’est quoi ton numéro ?
October 2, 2020 at 22:51
All you can do is wait. It will take some time to get the final judgement (perhaps 3 months), and at that time there will be a chance.
October 3, 2020 at 17:05
Means to issue the 9095 will decide after 90 days or within a month?
October 5, 2020 at 17:18
We do not know the exact timeline.
October 2, 2020 at 00:31
Hi brit thank you so much for your help and efforts. I am confused court say only 9095 Visa set after September what that mean???. It means only 9095 case process or 9095 Visa issues ????
October 2, 2020 at 22:53
October 2, 2020 at 00:42
what if I try to enter the US before December 31 and I am not allowed to enter? Could this result in a disadvantage the next time I try (after the end of the immigration ban)?
Thanks a lot for your answer.
October 2, 2020 at 22:54
No. Just the wasted time and money. Your choice.
October 2, 2020 at 00:43
You mentioned in the 7th paragraph “Indeed, there is a current lawsuit trying to do just that. So – let’s wait and see how that goes.” – which lawsuit are you talking about? Thank you!
October 2, 2020 at 22:57
That was the NAM v DHS suit. They just achieve a block on the ban BUT only for H, L and J visas (non immigrant). However, the case law is useful for our further arguments.
October 2, 2020 at 01:08
You are doing a great job Mr. Simon. May God give you more years.
October 2, 2020 at 01:57
This Email I received yesterday. Why is that? I m in Group 5 n Asia.
Thank you for your inquiry.
The inquiry you are making is regarding a case number and/or program year that is closed. KCC cannot provide any clarification.
October 2, 2020 at 23:05
Because that is the NORMAL process. They don’t know anything about the lawsuit and have not been instructed anything else yet. You have to wait.
October 2, 2020 at 02:23
1.What does it mean about ceac data showing 7166 ready?
2. Havent those many cases been interviewed in between september 4 to september 30?
3.could you please tell us remaining case at embassy around the world grossly?
Thankyou for all your support and help.
October 2, 2020 at 23:07
1. Ready means scheduled for interview. There are ALWAYS cases that stay at ready.
3. Please wait.
October 2, 2020 at 03:33
I added my comment but it is keep going to the spam I think. Can you please provide your email address? I need to ask a doubt regarding immigration but I am bit hesitant to ask it publicly.
October 2, 2020 at 23:09
October 2, 2020 at 03:42
Does it take three months to implement the order or from within a week the process goes ahead? I mean from when does kcc work to issue 9095 visas after few days or three months later after Dec. 31??
October 2, 2020 at 23:10
It is going to take some weeks, maybe months to establish how the remaining 9k visas will be issued.
October 2, 2020 at 03:42
I have a doubt and it is bothering me.
I went to the USA on F1 visa and within 1 month I entered(illegal entry) Canada through the border and sought asylum. But my asylum was refused and
Canada immigration issued a deportation order. So I left the country. Does this immigration record affect me on obtaining US immigrant visas?
The consular officer requested my asylum package and told me he needs to review it. So obviously, he is going to refuse my case right?
October 3, 2020 at 14:26
I read your reply from another post. Thank you. please delete this comment if you can.
October 2, 2020 at 04:03
Posted a message on your live stream today.
In your last blog post you’ve mentioned that Charles Cook is looking for visas with 10014 annotation on visas, that previously expired before april 23rd 2020. The annotations in our visas were still not removed. Me and my wife are still waiting for embassy response.
Here is my email: [email protected]
October 2, 2020 at 23:13
Denis – send them to Charles – [email protected].
October 2, 2020 at 05:48
Hey Brit !
Seriously, you should now put an “October-2nd-Update” that must contains : TRUMP is overwhelmingly tested positive to viruses – including (but not limited to) : coronavirus, lawless virus, untruthtelling virus.
October 2, 2020 at 23:15
Today, it feels somehow that justice Ginsberg sent something down to have a last laugh…
October 2, 2020 at 06:19
Ohhh, Brit! How warm and optimistic your words!!! Thank you for helping us, so much appreciated for supporting our dreams and not leave us in difficult times!!! Actually, I tried to forgot about DV after April and June proclamation but we are so lucky to have these tickets to last train)) Final step is to move to Country of Dream 🙂 It was a long trip but we should go forward and have a good hope!!! I wish to all Good luck!!!
October 2, 2020 at 06:44
Hello Brit ,
May i know the name of the lawsuit which is challenging proclamation 10014?
October 2, 2020 at 23:19
NAM v DHS. They got an injunction but it is for non immigrant visas.
October 2, 2020 at 06:49
A big thank you to Brit and the team of lawyers who fought for the 9095 visas. The next worry would be, who gets the visa? So it will be implemented as another random draw.
October 2, 2020 at 23:21
No need for another draw. They have a rank order to work on if needed. But for now – just wait.
October 2, 2020 at 08:17
My April 8th interview was cancelled & hoping to be one of the 9,095.
When I check my status (at https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx) it says “Invalid Immigrant Visa Case Number”. My Question is, Is it normal? Or Is it an end of the road of my case?
October 3, 2020 at 00:04
No it’s not normal, but nothing to worry about either.
October 2, 2020 at 08:49
Hi Mr Brit Simon, God Bless u and all ur efforts sir.
For those of us in grp 5 whose police c certificate will expire this month, what do u suggest we do? Shld we spend money again and make another certificate to try our luck for the 9000 visas or wait
October 3, 2020 at 00:07
October 2, 2020 at 08:55
Bonjour M. Brit,
J’ai une préoccupation et vos conseils me seront vraiment utiles .
En fait je suis sélectionné dv2021(CN 432xx)
Ma ptt amie avait été sélectionnés dv2020, elle as son statut “issued ” sur le CEAC donc elle aura son visa incessamment.
On veut se marier avant son départ car elle porte une grossesse d’un mois mais j’ai peur des conséquences que ce mariage pourrait avoir sur mon cas car j’ai déjà rempli et envoyé mon ds260 comme célibataire tel que indiqué depuis le départ.
C’est vrai que j’aurais tout les éléments de preuve pour mon mariage lors de l’entretien si je fait ce mariage.
1- pensez vous que cella puisse être mal vue que je déverrouille mon ds260 pour changer le statut matrimonial à cette période si?
2- la réglementation permet elle ce genre de manoeuvres, je veux dire ne me disqualifie t’elle pas?
3- Est-ce que le fait qu’au moment de mon entretien j’aurais déjà femme et enfant aux USA peut constituer pour moi un avantage ?
4-Que me recommandez vous de faire ?
Notez qu’elle compte partir du cameroun en janvier tel que prevu par les règles.
Merci de me répondre monsieur, portez vous bien.
October 2, 2020 at 14:27
I think Brit knows english and spanish but not french. So try to ask in english.
Mais si je dois donner mon humble avis, je crois que tu es chanceux et il n’y a aucun problème du moment où vous pourriez prouver votre relation. Et après le mariage tu peux changer ton status dans ton ds-260. Et après l’accouchement vous ajouteriez le bébé dans le ds-260.
October 3, 2020 at 01:12
I speak 4 languages, including French, but I ask that people post in English so that others may understand the questions and answers. Also, Eurovision.
October 3, 2020 at 00:08
October 2, 2020 at 09:52
I received my passport and visa last night from the US embassy in Montreal with a letter indicating that you can not travel because of the ban.
What a challenging process for DV2020 winners.The date of the visa issue is Sep30th.
Thanks for you support and guidance through this difficult year and I hope the remaining winners can get their visa and cope with 2020 complications.
October 3, 2020 at 00:20
October 2, 2020 at 10:29
Hi Brit Simon, I watched Curtis video update in YouTube. He said the lawyers are working on the merit case. And that they will talk with kcc asap so that their clients should be treated first. But clients with high case numbers would not have a place.
1) Does it mean that the named plaintiffs would be prioritized to non named plaintiffs?
2) considering the class certification put in place, help us talk to kcc so that non plaintiffs should not be treated like what they experienced 3weeks back.
October 3, 2020 at 01:01
All cases are covered, but it remains to be see what the prioritization will be. This will not be fast, so be prepared to wait.
October 2, 2020 at 12:39
We are getting a lot of questions about which visa categories are eligible to participate in our upcoming reuniting families lawsuit. These are the 6 categories:
(F1) – Unmarried sons and daughters (21 years of age and older) of U.S. citizens;
(F2A) Spouses and Children of Permanent Residents
(F2B) Unmarried Sons and Daughters (21 years of age or older) of Permanent Residents
(F3) Married Sons and Daughters of U.S. Citizens
(F4) Brothers and Sisters of Adult U.S. Citizens
(IR-5) Parent of a U.S. Citizen who is at least 21 years old.
These categories are all impacted by PP 10014, expanded by PP 10052 (labor bans). And it is only fair and just that the visa applicants in these 6 categories get the same relief the plaintiffs in NAM v Trump received yesterday for their nonimmigrant employees. (exemption from those bans).i am not understanding
October 3, 2020 at 01:04
I only work on DV
October 2, 2020 at 15:09
CONGRATULATIONS! even if I’m not concerned by the court decision CN AF67**** but it makes me happy somehow..
October 2, 2020 at 15:13
2020AF00067*** I knew it from the beginning big case numbers have a small chance
October 2, 2020 at 16:23
Thank you for your reassuring words, Simon. Those of us who have our Visas in our hands already- there is plenty on our plates until January 1st, 2021- How about starting the process of researching and applying for jobs online, writing out our resumes and CV’s, dealing with logistics like starting to toss away things in our house that we don’t need, deciding what we WILL bring, looking into international moving companies etc. It ain’t easy packing up decades of our lives that we have worked hard to build and starting anew, so we better be well prepared. Point is, no real point in fretting now- let’s just do what we CAN do to be well prepared, no? Good luck, all!
October 2, 2020 at 12:37
Are you subject to the PP10014? I love the optimism, truly.
October 3, 2020 at 16:01
Yes, yes I AM subject to the PP10014. We MUST stay optimistic- back on June 22nd, when Trump extended the PP10014, I couldn’t imagine in my (wilder?) dreams that eventual lawsuits would partially overturn it in favour of DV Visa applicants and that I would be called up for an interview, medical and issued the Immigrant Visa before September 30th. (I initially mulled over joining the 1st Curtis Morrison ‘Mohammed v Trump’ lawsuit but eventually didn’t as I thought there was no chance that anything could be done to overturn Trump’s ban- I eventually didn’t need it to get my visa, but I was obviously dead wrong at the time!)
October 3, 2020 at 01:30
Yep – preparation is important, but it WILL be frustrating before you get to USA.

God bless you Brit! You are helping to so many people. I am from DV 2021 but have been monitoring this whole situation, because our cases might be as bad as DV 2020. You giving people the purpose, as we all want to believe that everything will eventually come right to all of us.

I am called Arnold from Cameroon. Before the Covid ban I did my medicals and it showed I had some traces of weed in me. But that one expired. I stayed clean throughout that time till I was called to renew my medicals for my interview which I attended on September 14th and the Doctor said I was clean. But then I was still refused the visa yesterday because some guy called me from the embassy saying I’ve been denied because the CO saw in my medical records that I still had it in my system. So I don’t get it. Is it that the doctors didn’t send my new records to the embassy or the workers in the embassy didn’t show the CO the new medicals I brought. So what advice can you please give me or what do you think. Because I swear I’ve been clean for over six months and all tests done at the clinic showed negative for any drugs. I know your busy and have a lot on your plate now. But I would really appreciate a reply from you.

Smoking weed is not a medical problem, its a public charge one. The CO has the right to consider factor that may make you likely to need public assistance. Being a habitual drug user could cause that suspicion, and the CO is empowered to apply their own judgement to decide whether to take that factor into account, or not. Their decision is final.
