Seeing a couple of cases getting their 2NLs for October interviews. Again, this is a sign that things are working better than DV2022.
By the way, this is also confirmation that, at least for now, the document procedure is not re-implemented for DV2023. That’s great news.
For those that get an email to say check the ESC page, just understand that the ingterview letter is sometimes a little slow to show up there, just wait a few hours and try again.

What’s going on with Dv 2020 cases have we been forgotten?
August 13, 2022 at 16:24
No. Just waiting for the appeal.
August 12, 2022 at 21:35
Thanks for the update, it’s certainly a good start, and I really don’t understand the advantages of sending civil documents, and I guess not sending them simplifies the procedure.
In any case, we will have to wait for the geographic area to see how everything works out.
Some friends of mine have the SA5xx, do you think they will have to pack soon?
August 13, 2022 at 16:26
Asking for civil documents served to “weed out” people who couldn’t even provide the basic documents. Therefore it reduced fraudulent cases, and improved the quality of the candidates being scheduled (reducing refusals). So – it was a good idea – but badly implemented.
As for progress – wait and see.

August 22, 2022 at 04:01
Soon. Be patient.
August 16, 2022 at 16:04
Im a dv2023 winner. Do I need to send some documents to kcc when my DS260 is submitted?
August 22, 2022 at 04:06
August 18, 2022 at 16:57
Hello there, BritSimon. I have a couple questions, if you don’t mind my asking, please. My case number is 2023SAXXXXX904. I checked the September 2022 Visa Bulletin and the allocation cut-off number for October is 500. What are the chances that I will be getting my 2NL to go to an interview in November, considering I submitted my DS-260 on May 8, 2022? Also, I live in Quito, Ecuador. When I filed my DS-260, the system automatically assigned me to the Guayaquil Consular Office for a potential interview site. So what I did is I changed it right there when filing the DS-260 and requested the US embassy in Quito, which is geographically closer to where I live. Then I check the websites of the embassy and the consulate in both cities (Quito and Guayaquil) online and apparently, the US embassy in Quito doesn’t deal with DV lottery visa processing. Does that mean that when I get my 2NL, I will be assigned to the Guayaquil consulate again? Why would they give me the possibility to change to the US embassy in Quito if they don’t process DV lottery visas? Thanks in advance for your kind answers.
August 22, 2022 at 04:22
Wait and see when you get current.
They will pick the embassy, and wil not allow a local option if that consulate does not process DVs
August 25, 2022 at 09:36
Hola! Soy de ecuador también, te molesta si te contacto por algún medio?
August 25, 2022 at 18:23

I just got to know that a friend with case no OC2** received her 2nl and my case no is OC1** and i haven’t heard anything from KCC yet. What could be the reason? Getting anxious by the day.
August 28, 2022 at 21:33
The processing doesn’t go in precise case number order. Patience.
August 28, 2022 at 20:50
That is normal.

Hi Dear BritSimon
Is it possible that a Disqualified applicant by double entry to be selected or win dv lottery???
My freind was Disqualified because of double entry that he made undeliberately during registration
on November 2021 and error came( you are Disqualified due to double entry) but on 8th may 2022 when the results were announced he checked
his status and have won the lottery, he is randomly selected for further process in fiscal year 2023.
Should he submit his DS260 or is he rejected?
Waiting for your response.
August 28, 2022 at 21:33
Sounds like the system stopped the double entry.
August 29, 2022 at 19:14

Unlock and add your husband to your DS260
September 18, 2022 at 08:35
hey Simon, if the document procedure is not re-implemented for DV2023, is that meant i don’t get worries about work experience even though i filled that i have work experience (‘yes’) in ds-260???? …………..why i asking is because my employee doesn’t allow me to get work experience because they scared that i will leave the job.
September 24, 2022 at 18:25
THe document procedure did not ask for any documents about work experience, so the one thing has no impact to the other.
