My previous guide explained the things that you are not supposed to do before you get the second notification letter, 2NL. Today, we will learn those important things that you’re supposed to do before the second notification letter or in other words, things that will help you as you’re waiting for the second notification letter, 2NL.
If you’re waiting for the second notification letter, you have already filled the DS-260 form and submitted it. Also for those who are waiting for the results, this guide is important for you because once you fill the DS-260 form, you will apply the same things discussed in this guide.
Thing You Must do While Waiting For The 2NL
1. Track on the visa bulletins
The first thing that is very important and will be beneficial to you will be having a good track on the visa bulletins.
Every month there is a visa bulletin released by the Department of State, and this visa bulletin will outline all information about the visas, not only the DV, but also other visas.
The point that you should be keeping track of is that area of the DV lottery visas, have a good track of them. This is the visa bulletin that informs the current numbers. \
It is the visa bulletin that tells if your number is current or your case number is not current.
Therefore, if you’re waiting for the second notification letter, have a good track of the visa bulletins.
2. Always be updated with the visa news either from the USCIS or from your embassy, that is your local embassy.
Always be updated. Get the news of the proceedings of your embassy, what is going on, what are the news about the visas? It’s not a must, but that is also a good thing to keep to be updated on.
3. Try as much as possible to get the information about the current performance of your embassy, with regards to the diversity visa process.
Know how they are continuing with the diversity visa. Are they slow? Are there some concerns? Why so?
Because if you realize early that they are very slow, that can affect you. You can take the necessary steps. Majority of people have already transferred their cases to better embassies and some of them have already gotten their interviews.
Having a good track record of the performance of your embassy is very beneficial to you. So, have the latest information about the current progress at your embassy.
4. Always check for the notifications
The other thing that you should do, and this is an obvious thing, is always check your notifications, always check your emails for any information sent to you. Don’t forget to do that.
Another important thing that you’re supposed to do is, while you are waiting for the second notification letter, because some people have not yet fulfilled the documentation requirement, i.e you might be waiting for the 2NL, yet you don’t have all the passports of your beneficiaries, or you’ve not yet gotten your police clearance certificate, or maybe you lost the academic certificate and you’ve not yet gotten it or replaced it.
It would be the highest time that you now obtain these documents as you’re waiting for the second application letter. Have the documents ready.
5. If you need to get the passports for your beneficiaries that you don’t have, do it. If you need to get the consent letter or the sole custody papers for those single parents that have children, then do it.
6. The consent letter is required for all single parents and more so if you got the baby and at the time of getting the baby, the other partner was not there and he has never shown up, you also need the sole custody papers. Prepare them.
Remember, even if the other partner lost contact with you long and many years back, you still need this consent letter or the sole custody papers. You will need them. So prepare these documents as you’re waiting for the second notification letter.
It will be wise of you to get ready financially.
Arm yourself with all the required fees and expenses as you’re waiting for the second notification letter because it might be too late or the time might be short if you wait until you receive your second notification letter for you to gather this amount.
So prepare yourself with the visa fee, the medical examination fee, the miscellaneous expenses, have them or get them ready as you’re waiting for second notification letter.
These are some of the things that you might need to do as you’re waiting for the second notification letter.
