Let discuss on how to successfully change your DV interview location. This guide will teach you how to change your diversity visa interview location.
There are some risk that majority of DV applicants might have owing to the fact that some embassies are under-performing with regards to the diversity visa lottery interview.
Having the middle case number or the high case number, you are at a higher risk if you are in these embassies. There’s one possible thing that you can do, and that is rescheduling your interview location.
First of all, you need to be in that new country for you to change the Embassy location, that is the interview location.
Correct Way to Successfully Change Your DV Interview Location
In this guide, you will learn the correct way to request for interview location change from KCC.
- You need to be in that new country.
- You need to request KCC to unlock your DS-260 form and update the interview location with a new address that you intend to take your interview from.
- Then after resubmitting the DS-260 form, then you send email.
- You will write to KCC informing them that you have changed the interview location and that they should take notice of that and change your interview location.
Remember, they might not do it at the first request, and if they don’t do it at the first request, if they don’t change the interval location at the first request, email again and request again.
The Email You Should Send
Below is a format/sample email that you should write to KCC:
Subject: Request to Reschedule DV Interview Location from [Embassy 1] to [Embassy 2, which is the Embassy that you had filled, the Embassy that you have updated].
I’m writing to request a reschedule of my diversity visa (DV) interview location from [Embassy 1] to [Embassy 2]. My case number is [Insert your case number], date of birth [MM/DD/YYYY], and my name is [Insert your full names as you filled in the DS-260 form].
I had initially scheduled my diversity visa interview at [Embassy 1], but I have since relocated to [Insert your new address] in [Country 2, the country you are at now].
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to travel back to [Country 1] for the interview.
Therefore, I kindly request that you consider rescheduling my new interview location to [Embassy 2], which is more accessible to me. This will enable me to attend the interview at a convenient location and fulfill the requirements for the diversity visa.
I have attached all the necessary documents and proof of residence in [Country 2], and I would be grateful if you could consider my request and provide me with a new interview appointment at [Embassy 2].
Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
[Insert your name].
Note: It’s not a must that you include this statement.
“I have attached all the necessary documents and proof of residence in [Country 2], and I would be grateful if you could consider my request and provide me with a new interview appointment at [Embassy 2].”
It’s not a must that you attach the proof document. But it will be very important if you can obtain a document that proves your current address, your new address. If you can find any document that you can use to prove your new address, it might be a utility bill, it might be a bank statement, it might be any document that points to the address where you are at now.
If you have those documents, you have an upper hand in this case. But if you don’t have any document or proof this, just leave this clause out and don’t attach anything and send and see whether they will change the interview location.
At first trial, they might or might not change it. So you need to send another email if they don’t act on the first one and request again.
So if you have document to prove your residence, then it’s good for you. But if you don’t have it’s not necessarily that you attach the document, just email them and let them know that you have relocated and they need to change your interview location.
I hope this guide on how to change your diversity visa interview location is well informative.
