The new Visa Bulletin has been released. This one is for interviews in July, and it now makes all regions AND COUNTRIES current. To be clear, this is about DV2021, it is NOT about DV2022 numbers.
However, as I have already explained, that is purely an indication of how “broken” the system is at the moment. KCC has reported that there are not enough “ready for scheduling” cases to use the remaining visas. That is only true because KCC have not processed enough documents, it is not a true reflection of the actual demand.
Now, far more critical is the pace of scheduling. Again that is bad. As I pointed out in my video a few days ago, there is no sign that KCC is planning to schedule a high volume of cases overf the remaining months, and in fact, they are instead showing the opposite behavior. They are still very very low on interviews, around 40 embassies are yet to even accept their first DV case, and the DoS has announced that DV cases are a very low priority in a capacity limited system. All very serious, and not the news you would want to hear.
Please consider the situation seriously. There is significant risk to all cases right now. I discussed this a few days ago and you can read/hear more on my thoughts about joining a lawsuit here.

I am winner of DV2022, my case number being 2022AS00008151. In my DS-260 social media accounts(instagram,facebook,youtube, google account, linkedin) I have messaged tons of girls, viewed erotics pics and watched porn. Does this have serious consequences?
June 3, 2021 at 05:14
You will go blind.
June 3, 2021 at 07:13
Haha no not that I meant does it have consequences in my processing?

Just a quick heads up: Frankfurt is sending out 2 NLs now. Just got mine 10 minutes ago, interview is mid-July. However, I have been ready for scheduling since November 2020 with a low 6k EU number.
I couldn’t be happier. I wish everyone else the best of luck that they will get their invitation or at least processed documents quickly!
June 2, 2021 at 15:28
I know that KCC is working based on case number but when i checked July 2nl, case number 2021AF62906 and 2021AF80068 are ready ? how did it that possible ?
June 3, 2021 at 17:06
Because as I have explained before, there are times when KCC would have been processing all case number ranges.
June 2, 2021 at 15:53
Wanted to let Simon and everyone know I just got my 2NL for interview in mid-July. 2021OC3xx, got the “Ready for Scheduling” email last August, interview in Frankfurt, Germany, and a Goh plaintiff. Very happy! Hope others are getting good news today as well.
June 2, 2021 at 16:58
Also Goh plaintiff, 2021EU36xx. Ready email in October, and just got the 2NL for 2nd half of July in Budapest, Hungary. Till now Hungary did not process any case, but with this letter it changes. Not sure if it is because of the plaintiff or they simply waited till now as covid numbers dropped significantly.
June 2, 2021 at 16:55
Hello Simon – just received the 2NL for an interview late July in London. OC less than 200 so was current the very first month. I had my documentation in early and confirmed ready by KCC in early August.
Big relief as I was starting to fear that people with much higher numbers were getting interviews and would use up the relatively small number of OC slots before the Goh case had a chance to hopefully come to our rescue.
The last week has been tough since I saw the post of a fellow OC applicant who had been scheduled for an interview with a number ten times higher than hours. I stopped my near-obsessive checking in to your sites or the tweets of Charles Kuck and his colleagues.
I don’t know whether being a Goh plaintiff played a part in being scheduled. Equally, I don’t know whether my communications to KCC played any part. I sent two emails to KCC asking to be scheduled now that London was open for interviews. I did not receive a response to the first but did receive one to the second. As an aside, when I did receive that email I foolishly called out to my wife that it looked as if we did have an interview. This time round I was a lot more measured. The email from KCC was quite generic and just confirmed that my case number was current for interview processing which I obviously knew. My second email went tried to add a personal touch by asking for fairness saying that luck was integral to the DV lottery and that luck included receiving a low number and therefore it would be unfair not to schedule according to number if documents were in early. I also noted that it took twenty entries before we won. That email was somewhat inspired by taking the content I had used in an unsuccessful email to the consulate in Iceland to see if they would take us.
Consistent with the sentiments of others thanks for all the support you provide to this community.
June 3, 2021 at 17:09
Greg Siskind published yesterday that London is cancelling some appointments (in other categories, I believe) – so hopefully that won’t happen in your case.
June 2, 2021 at 17:02
Hello Simon ,
I have sent my documents some months ago and now they’re expired . Should I resend my documents or just wait for the confirmation .
June 2, 2021 at 19:34
Hi Simon, I just received my 2NL for an interview in the UK. Couldn’t express the happiness and relief of seeing this email. Still finding it hard to believe that it finally happened. We did send a few emails to KCC asking for our interview to get scheduled and they replied to one of them confirming the details of the appointment. We do have a very small CN and are plaintiffs so not sure what exactly helped but either way the final result is important. Thank you for all your help, couldn’t have done it without your continuous support and knowledge ?
June 3, 2021 at 17:13
Fingers crossed all goes well!
June 2, 2021 at 22:39
Hi dear Brit
A few weeks ago I sent an email to kcc to see if my supporting documents are satisfying.
They replied yesterday like that:
Thank you for your inquiry.
Your forms have been received and are currently processing. Allow several weeks for processing. And So on.
Does this mean my case is processing?
June 3, 2021 at 18:29
That is what is says.
June 3, 2021 at 23:00
So you are saying to me; it is not important when they email me as above even if it is not auto-reply, right?
June 3, 2021 at 10:49
You have advised someone here that the interviews are scheduled between KCC and respective embassies.
So I just want to know if a particular embassy can schedule interviews in say two to three consecutive days i.e. start scheduling from Wednesday through Friday?
June 3, 2021 at 19:04
I don’t know what you mean.
June 4, 2021 at 06:56
What I mean is this – can we get 2nls from the same embassy today, tomorrow and the day after.
June 5, 2021 at 14:42
I see them sending once per embassy, but I could be wrong.
June 3, 2021 at 16:23
I have some questions about the dv lottery. Im a physician in Argentina, and i wanna participate in the lottery this year. My idea is working in the us as an investigator and study to take the USMLE (us medical licensing examination) so I can start a medical residency there.
I know there are some specifics questions to physicians in the ds260 form. Is there any restrictions getting the visa as a physician who havent take the usmle before winnig the dv lottery?
June 3, 2021 at 19:18
The lottery is just that – a lottery. It’s not a plan.
June 3, 2021 at 19:22
Hello Mr Brit,
EU25xxx case here.
I have sent docs on 9th of May, no news from KCC since then.
Should I ask them for the status or wait until the end of June maybe?
Your opinion is really appreciated.
June 3, 2021 at 19:26
June 3, 2021 at 19:29
June 3, 2021 at 19:41
You are obviously at risk, so be proactive.
June 3, 2021 at 22:12
I do have the similar problem. Should I make a call to ask about my docs status? or send and email?
what is their contact?
June 5, 2021 at 14:35
Again, be proactive. You have the email.
June 3, 2021 at 21:41
I already asked this question but I count find your answer or even my comments ,
I am a refugee in EU on October I still didn’t have a refugee passport but I was recognized refugee and waiting in the line to get my passport . but I had my original passport and it was not expired yet , so I applied and I WON, while I am happy and think I m the luckiest refugee in the world but my concern is that in interview they are gonna ask my why did you apply with the original passport while you are refugee, is it going to be a reason to lose this chance ?
I forgot to say I finally received my passport (refugee travel document)and I fill the DS 260 form with my new passport , my original one is expires now . tell me everything is going to be fine and I am going to lose the title of refugee soon

Hello Simon ,
Im a 2021 dv selectee , i have already received the email for sending documents and I have sent my documents some months ago and now they’re expired . Should I resend my documents or just wait for the confirmation .
June 5, 2021 at 08:05
First thanks for your time because you really help us to understand everything in the DV cases.
2021AS179xx // UAE
I received in 28/5 this email from [email protected] when I ask about my documents if it’s clear or any update :
Your DS-260 has been processed. You should have received, or will soon receive, an email from the Kentucky Consular Center giving you instructions to complete in order for your case to continue processing. Please follow the instructions in the email. Interviews are scheduled numerically based on case numbers that have completed processing. Please refer to the visa bulletin at travel.state.gov to 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 dvprogram.state.gov.
1.what will be the next step?
2.I saw many cases ready in 2NL July in AMM more than 22K but I still no any update from KCC because also here in UAE the embassy open like AMM /Jordan. How!?
3. I must join the lawsuit?
sorry for taking much of your time.
June 5, 2021 at 15:06
The email means they have not processed your documents yet. So, until they do you will not be scheduled. You probably should have joined the lawsuit but it is closed now. All you can do is wait and hope.
June 5, 2021 at 14:52
No need to update expired documents.
June 5, 2021 at 21:50
Hey Brit, I am DQ with case AF9K. The embassy in the country where I reside has only schedule 5 cases for July interview:
1. However, the embassy in my country is scheduling at a higher rate, do you recommend me changing my interview location to my home country of chargeability to increase my chance of being schedule?
2. Do you recommend unlocking my DS260 at this time? Do you think there is a negative consequence of unlocking my DS260 now?
June 6, 2021 at 18:51
1. I don’t want to make a recommendation -you need to decide for yourself.
2. There is rarely any need to do that. You could discuss with KCC.
June 6, 2021 at 05:01
I absolutely was hopeless a few months ago and I completely forgot about DV2021 since I had to finish my thesis and my exams, now I see that my embassy La Paz in Bolivia has scheduled and even denied/issued some DV2021 cases even though they say in their official page that they are not issuing immigrant visas yet.
LPZ embassy has 3 people ready, denied 4 and has issued 1 visa , max CN is SA3900, my CN is SA3200
I haven’t even filled my DS260 out of fear of being denied a tourist or student visa in the future.
1. Is it too late to fill the DS260, send my documents or join a lawsuit?
2. Given that there are only 15 cases and 38 winners or so in my Country, would KCC schedule me if I fill the DS
260 and send my documents ASAP? Would calling them everyday make them place my case in my embassy since it is not as busy as other SA embassies?
3. Will there be any other more lawsuits in the future?
June 6, 2021 at 19:12
Yes it is too late. There are many cases waiting for interviews, and KCC/the embassies are scheduling very few. If you were to submit your DS260 now you would be very unlikely to have it and the documents processed in the next 3 weeks, which is what you would need to get scheduled this year. It’s your choice, but my advice would be to forget the DV selection.
June 13, 2021 at 21:20
Hello brit, hope you’re doing great. I have some questions, I hope you don’t mind if I could get to ask you privately. I’ll shoot you a text on Twitter.
June 6, 2021 at 15:24
I had submitted the requested documents but received following email from KCC DV team:
Thank you for submitting your Diversity Visa documents to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC). After reviewing your documents, KCC has determined that there are additional documents that you must send in order to proceed. Please see the required documents listed below and submit all required documents.
All submitted documents are below.
1. Passport Biographic Page
2. Birth Certificate
3. Marriage Certificate
4. Military Records
5. Police Certificates
Went through the documents do believe nothing was missed by me. PLEASE advise may be I really missed something.
Thanks a lot in advance.
June 6, 2021 at 19:36
Obviously I cannot guess what you have missed, based on the little info you gave me.
June 6, 2021 at 19:43
Let me elaborate here.
If I had submitted below documents as per the request what could be missed then? I had followed up the recommendations and do believe nothing is left. The question is why KCC states that something is missing not pointing on what?
All submitted documents are below.
1. Passport Biographic Page
2. Birth Certificate
3. Marriage Certificate
4. Military Records
5. Police Certificates
June 7, 2021 at 00:30
Hi Brit Simon,
Really hoping you can offer some clarity. I’m in Australia right now, with a low OC21XX number. We are likely one of the only countries where embassy’s have been operating largely unimpeded by Covid thanks to zero cases here.
I currently hold a non-immigrant visa, and it is up for renewal in October next year. With my number being higher, I decided to wait to submit my DS260 as I didn’t want to submit unless I was sure my number would go current and I could get an interview. Now it seems everywhere has gone current, and I have watched what you said about how the system is really broken and this is a misunderstanding between KCC and USCIS. I have however spoken to someone in New Zealand with number OC25XX who submitted her documents in October 2020, not knowing anything about any of these issues, and is now waiting for an interview date. I know you’ve said in your FAQ’s that usually the latest you would recommend submitting documents is in late May.
My question is – seeing as this year is so different from previous ones, and I don’t want to create more issues for myself for future non-immigrant visas, would it be your opinion that I’ve missed the boat? Or would you think it would be worth throwing my hat in the ring and risk not getting an interview in time?
I read everything I could at the time the results came out but was left with the impression that it was better to wait, but now I am worried I have misread the situation and information and have now left myself in a situation where I will definitely miss out when I had a real shot all along.
This whole system is SO confusing and I am grateful for you offering your expertise.
June 7, 2021 at 18:40
In normal times early to mid May would be my latest submission advice. But since the introduction of the documents procedure a couple of years ago, even that seems risky. Completing the DS260 now and hoping that and documents can be processed in the next 3 or 4 weeks is probably a doomed effort. You could try, but if it doesn’t get through in time, then it will make future NIV applications a little harder, not impossible, just a little harder).
If your NIV is dual intent (H1 or L1 for example) you could re-enter USA immediately and process adjustment of status. There is just about time enough for that. If it is not a dual intent visa you would be at risk because there is a DoS rule about not submitting an AOS application within 90 days of entry. You might want to consult with a lawyer about that.
June 7, 2021 at 02:36
Hi Brit Simon,
Firstly I want to say thank you for the wealth of information you provide! It’s absolutely incredible the amount of effort you go to with this website and it is much appreciated.
I won DV2021 and have just been scheduled for an interview in July. However, I am in Melbourne and am unable to get into Sydney as we are in lockdown and all other states aren’t allowing us to enter (without $3000 two week hotel quarantine). In addition, I have lost significant income this year (and have no financial buffer) so am scared I shouldn’t proceed as I may not be able to afford it (which I am extremely upset about).
1. Do you think there would be anyway they would extend my approval?
2. Should I attend and speak to them about it (if lockdown lifts in Melbourne)?
3. If not, do you think it would be possible to ever win it again?
This was my absolute dream to move to the US and I imagine a lot of people would feel the same, but I am extremely unsure of what to do. Trying to think with my head and not my heart.
June 7, 2021 at 18:51
1. By approval, do you mean the interview? Possibly – you can email them. Sydney are pretty good at answering emails.
2. After the interview you will have months of visa validity. You will have time to save money, make a plan, figure out how to make things work.
3. The chance of selection in OC region is higher than any other region. So – you have about 1 in 20 chance of being selected each year. Odds are not bad, but if you can make this work, do it. Emigrating is never easy, but if you are struggling in AUS anyway, what have you got to lose? Do some couch surfing, work hard, and in the USA you can make it work.
June 7, 2021 at 04:19
Hello Brit…. Hope you are doing all well…I’ve got a query….I am dv 2021 winner and I sent my documents to kcc about a year ago in July…. as my police report is going to be invalid within some weeks now…. Shall I send renew documents on my own or just hold and see?
Thanks alot 🙂
June 7, 2021 at 20:05
If you want, you could apply for a new police cert to show at the interview, just to be over prepared.
June 9, 2021 at 04:28
Similar to this,Is it required to obtain Police certificate again from the country after expiring if you have not visited it again?I am DV2022 selectee,I live in japan but i need Police certificate from India.I have filled DS-260 and i dont know when KCC might ask other documents,I am trying to figure out when should i get the certificate so that it does not expire by the time i interview or I can explain that i have not entered India after getting the certificate.
June 10, 2021 at 04:48
Read the Indian reciprocity page.
June 7, 2021 at 12:42
Will #DV2022 Winners BE AFFECTED Like #DV2020 and #DV2021 Winners? immigration suspension and pandemic.
June 8, 2021 at 21:59
It is hard to imagine the Covid impacts just suddenly ending on October 1 2021. So – there may be some impacts, but it is impossible to quantify that impact at this time.
June 7, 2021 at 17:38
I am Dv-2022 winner from Egypt chargeability (2022AF12XXX), However I live in Saudi Arabia , is it better to choose my interview in Riyadh KSA ,or change it to be in Cairo Egypt , Dose it make any difference in my interview chances ? , Taking in consideration that Covid-19 situation in Saudi is much better than Egypt.
Also Why Egypt in a specific shows progress in CUT-OFF in June bulletin , However others shows (Current)
June 8, 2021 at 22:20
You are generally better off interviewing where you live, and KCC will schedule you that way. But it’s early – things could change between now and when you get an interview.
June 7, 2021 at 17:58
Do you know if any DV2022 who submitted DS-260 received the email to submit documents? I saw you on the last Q&A telling a 2022 winner to send their documents
June 8, 2021 at 22:23
June 7, 2021 at 17:59
Now I tried calling KCC on 1 606 526 7500 phone number. The answer machine says I should send email to KCC, and they answer ASAP. I have sent email 4 weeks ago regarding the documents. Did this phone number worked anyone recently?
June 8, 2021 at 22:24
I don’t know.
June 18, 2021 at 22:19
They are not responding to phone calls since few months ago. And also, they didn’ t reply to mail…I’ve sent few since middle of May..
June 7, 2021 at 20:17
I won DV2021 from the AF region and I m on Lawsuit, and a few days back the lawyers sent an email to Kcc by cc’ing me. But I am worried about one thing, I also am selected for DV2022, but still, I didn’t fill the DS260 for DV2022. Will the lawsuit affect the DV2022 chance for me?
June 8, 2021 at 22:37
Not at all.
June 8, 2021 at 08:02
Do we have anyone here from Liberia who have received his/her 2NL?
June 8, 2021 at 22:55
Is that really you God?
June 9, 2021 at 07:42
I needed to know whether someone from Liberia has received 2NL instead you are asking back whether it’s God. It didn’t add up, Mr. Simon.
June 9, 2021 at 14:02
And yet – you persist in using that name.
June 9, 2021 at 05:39
What do you think If judge will decide to reserve visas through Goh or Goodluck, will it benefit for other NON plaintiff selectees? I couldn’t join the lawsuit, but I have received case is ready to be scheduled on may 28, our embassy is still closed and obviously there will be a little or no time at all to schedule an interview.
Thanks a lot.
June 10, 2021 at 04:50
I don’t know what will happen.
June 9, 2021 at 14:46
Can any case be transferred to a different embassy if we can travel to that country, or are there specific embassies that accept any case
June 9, 2021 at 14:57
is there any list of embassies we can see that accept transfer cases
June 10, 2021 at 05:12
June 10, 2021 at 05:12
Some embassies are only accepting local cases.
June 9, 2021 at 20:42
Thanks for you relentless work.
We received the 2NL for July.
We’re also part of a lawsuit – do you have any informations on how the officers are handling this? Will there by specific questions about why we joined etc? Or maybe any recommendations on how we could prepare for questions around the lawsuit.
June 10, 2021 at 05:17
They won’t ask about that.
June 10, 2021 at 04:41
What do you think if the judge decides to preserve visas for later time after fiscal year ends, will it be beneficiary for the other NON plaintiff selectees or reserved visas would be for plaintiffs only? If yes could NON plaintiffs get their visas even if fiscal year ended?
Thanks a lot for your time.
June 10, 2021 at 14:03
I don’t have a crystal ball.
June 10, 2021 at 05:17
Hello Simon: Do you think I should write to kcc to have my daughter’s DS (Incomplete) removed since she is not emigrating with me? Do you think this delays my processing? I already have the “ok”, however, an interview has not been scheduled for me yet but … If an interview has been scheduled for numbers much higher than mine my case number (2021SA000017xx)
June 10, 2021 at 14:07
They will not remove the DS260 – so just leave it incomplete.
June 10, 2021 at 11:57
HEllo Dear Simon!
I want to share an explanation about the lawsuit of Curtis and have your opinion about my statistics.
Yesterday, I received an email from Curtis in which there is the list of the plaintiffs. The list contains 1563 pages that represent the 24089 plaintiffs and on each page there is around 8 plaintiffs’ names.
So if the a person is on the page 50, we calculate 50*8=400.
1-Can we guess that this plaintiff is around the 400th place among the whole plaintiffs? If the lawsuit is a success, you say that about 12 thousand plaintiffs can be scheduled for interview that is the half of the plaintiffs.
2- Considering what you said, this 400th plaintiff can be normally scheduled earlier that others?
June 10, 2021 at 14:22
I don’t think the ordering of plaintiffs will be enforced as ordering of work by the government.
June 10, 2021 at 12:47
I summited my DS-260 Form early May but i haven”t received any mail from KCC. Please any advice. Bless you
June 10, 2021 at 14:34
Your number is not clear, but if it is 44 thousand that number is far higher than cases they have processed and they may not get to your case.
June 10, 2021 at 14:06
Dear Simon, thank you for your support ??
1- What is your opinion about, The Keeping Our Promise Act — proposed legislation from U.S. Reps. @ritchietorres, D-N.Y., and @RepJudyChu, D-Calif., ?
2- When may we know the decision of the Congress?
3- How is its chance of passing Congress?
June 10, 2021 at 14:50
1. It’s just one of many suggested bills each year – most of which go nowhere, so I only take notice when they look like passing.
2. I don’t know.
June 10, 2021 at 14:39
My case# is 2021AS17xxx. I have submitted all the documents to KCC on 20th June 2021. I have not received ‘Ready for Scheduling’ email yet. Our embassy is Montreal, QC, Canada which is operational but with limited capacity right now.
1. What should I do next?
2. Should I contact KCC?
3. Should I contact embassy directly?
June 10, 2021 at 14:48
June 11, 2021 at 15:14
Sorry, I made a mistake in date. I submitted all documents to KCC on 20th April 2021. Is your answer still the same for all my questions? Thanks!
June 11, 2021 at 15:15
Of course. I ignored the obviously incorrect date.
June 12, 2021 at 11:24
Hello Simon, thank you for all your good works for the dv community. I learnt that some people in Ghana have received their 2NL. Please how true is this?
June 13, 2021 at 14:39
June 16, 2021 at 00:57
Hi Brits, how come Ghana is still in the red list, but not in the green list?
June 16, 2021 at 04:29
Because the staff at Accra haven’t even updated CEAC yet.
June 12, 2021 at 23:17
goh plaintiff + i’m ready for scheduling since March + low case number AF19K + our embassy scheduled a lot of cases and reached to 13K case number
1.what are my chances ?
2.What should I do next?
June 13, 2021 at 15:11
1. I don’t have a way to calculate that, but because you are on HOH you probably have a good chance.
June 13, 2021 at 05:37
Dear Mr Simon,Is there are any updates for DV2020?
Thank you in advance.
June 13, 2021 at 15:24
June 13, 2021 at 06:50
Hi brit, kcc asked for documents on 12/Nov./2020 and i sent them twice once on 4/Jan/2021 and second time on 23/Feb/2021 till now no ok reponse from kcc, and already asked for documents satisfication about 3 weeks ago no answer too. What should i do send them again or what ? My case no. AS13k i live in iraq.
June 13, 2021 at 15:29
Unfortunately there is not a good piece of advice I have to make something happen for you. Just keep trying.
June 14, 2021 at 23:38
Hi BritSimon: a question, please.
At what point in the application process and how do I suggest job offer or financial asset (and not affidavit) as proof that we will not be a public charge?
June 15, 2021 at 06:20
Read the FAQ about the I-134.

I did, but frankly didn’t find the answer. Just want to know if it’s before (for example when sending documents) or at the interview.
June 16, 2021 at 00:59
Right before your interview,you will be asked to give all your original documents such as passport,police verification,high school certificate,Medical and FINANCIAL ASSETS .It will take 20～３０min.If they find that you have all the documents,You will be asked to Pay the fee (around 330$） and go for interview.

You did not read very carefully.
June 16, 2021 at 18:21
It’s okay, Brit. Thank you.
June 15, 2021 at 10:38
hi I hope you’re okay I have a question please. is that a lack of information about the course of studies, for example, the high school year did not mention in DS260 but the year of obtaining my free baccalaureate is mentioned. Please it’s not something serious it’s information or you need to reopen the DS260 please I need an answer.

If you are DV2022, unlock and correct. For DV2021, leave it as is.
June 17, 2021 at 00:53
yes i’m DV2022. it won’t cause problems with the maintenance date knowing that my case number is 27k ? because the KCC is maybe to late in the answer for unlock DV260
June 17, 2021 at 01:37
I add in the form the hight school diploma.but the tenth grader and the eleventh grader not.you think i should unlock DS260 ?
June 16, 2021 at 20:33
Two questions that I have are: 1. Can a green card holder which has not become citizen, can that person in the US be a sponsor?
2. Is it necessary for the US government to know the sponsor’s annual income?
June 17, 2021 at 16:55
2. Yes – that will be entered on the I-134.

Brits is there anything new about dv2020

June 17, 2021 at 03:31
i hope you doing well, i have a question
I did not enter school details in my DS260. Just entered the hight school diplomat and vocational school along. is that ok ?
June 17, 2021 at 19:58
If you are DV2022, I would suggest you unlock and correct the form. If you are DV2021, just leave it as it is.

Many thanks for the continued guidance on matter DV. I have a situation in my case and a few Questions I need your insight on.
My Case Number AF91xx. My Local Embassy selected for the interview is Nairobi and they are currently processing DV cases.
1. I submitted my DS260 on August 2nd 2020
2. KCC requested for my documents for further processing on 27th August 2020
3. I sent my documents for further processing on 2nd September 2020
4. I received ready for scheduling email on 11th December 2020
5. I’m a Goodluck v Biden Plaintiff***
Since then I have been waiting for the 2NL. So my Questions.
1. From Xarthisius data released yesterday, I saw some 3 Case numbers (AF93xx, AF93xx and AF95xx) that are higher than my CN (AF91xx) have been allocated interviews already, is this normal and should I be worried that my CN has been skipped?
2. From your experience and what you have observed this year, do I have any chance of getting an interview?, (I’m very optimistic but I want to practice cautious optimism)?
3. In your observation and understanding what approach are they taking in scheduling this year, if its by month documents were submitted or processed, what month could they be processing currently?
4. Would a follow up to KCC on my Case Scheduling help fast track my CN in your Opinion?
Thank you as always.

Hi Simon thanks for your work. I asked you last year when I won a green card as an Australian citizen but as I’ve been born in Russia you advised that I’ll get rejected and I listened to your advice and didn’t follow up after sent DS 260. However US consulate keeps emailing me inviting to come for an interview. I told them that I have been born in Russia but applied as an Australian, they told me to come any way, moreover they don’t require the medical before the interview in my case. Do you think it’s worthwhile going and seeing what’ll happen? I gave it up last year but US embassy quite persistent, is there is a chance to get it in my case? Maybe they lack of people this year ?. Thank you so much for your help.
June 19, 2021 at 05:00
Are you sure that is really the embassy. The story doesn’t make sense. Until you are scheduled the embassy know nothing about you, and you cannot be scheduled before sending documents.
But in any case, its your money – your choice.
June 18, 2021 at 03:11
hi brit, a question. After obtaining the visa, it is advisable to buy a roundtrip air ticket or would it be okay?
June 19, 2021 at 05:04
Up to you.
June 18, 2021 at 16:14
If the KCC is not really working as it supposed to do then the dv program should be stopped. One year of stress anxiety etc is not easy. Behind every case number is dream.
June 19, 2021 at 20:01
As the law stands, visas not issued after September 30th will be wasted. So – isn’t it better to get SOME cases issued?
June 20, 2021 at 22:07
I was born in KSA 30 years ago. As far as I know that during the interview the Counselor might ask me about a KSA birth certificate, despite that Iam not KSA citizen I was only born there. My question is what should I do even though I don’t have a KSA birth certificate and I don’t have any docs related to this matter hence it happened 30 years ago? Is there anything that I can do ?
June 22, 2021 at 13:36
Read the reciprocity page for KSA and follow the procedures depending on your situation.

Hello Simon! I am Dv2021 winner
DS260 submitted on 6/28/2020;
Documents sent on 04/01/2021.
I am Still waiting for my 2nd letter. I’ve sent email to Kcc to know the status of my case but no reply. please do you have any advise for me ?
June 22, 2021 at 13:41
They probably never processed your documents because of the case number. All you can do is hope they get to your case, or that the lawsuits help.
June 23, 2021 at 02:58
Thank you Simon!
But I know a guy with a case number higher than mine who just passed his interview last week at the same embassy. His case number was 440XX. Any explanation to that ?
June 24, 2021 at 04:36
His case was processed before you, and all case numbers are current now, so that is normal.
