How DS-260 Forms Are Processed By KCC
After submitting the DS-260 form, the next process is for it to get processed, and this is done by KCC. Remember, everyone who was selected a winner for DV program all over the globe is filling the DS-260 form and submitting.
The KCC normally process the DS-260 form in the order of their submission. If you have a very high case number and you submit it earlier than the person who had a low case number, your DS-260 form will be processed before that with the low case number. They are processed in the order of submission.
This comes as a very important question, especially to those with very low case numbers. If you have a very low case number, ensure that you fill in your DS-260 very early, so that it might be processed amongst the early submitted ones and stay in wait for your number to become current.
By so doing, if your case was to be scheduled for interview in the first month of the fiscal year, that is October, then you will be scheduled because you submitted it early and it was processed.
If you fail and you have a very low case number that was supposed to be scheduled for October interviews, but you fail to submit it early enough, maybe you submitted it in July or in August, then when the interviews for the month of October will be scheduled, your DS-260 form might not have been processed, and that means you won’t be scheduled for that month.
Then you’ll keep wondering, why have I not been scheduled yet? I’m current, my number is current. That is the very reason.
