DV 2019 Kenyan Selectees

Hello ,
Kindly help me understand. I have the appointment letter interview in 30 days 2019AF00014XXX. Do i have to wait for embassy to direct me to knec for certificate verification or I just go ahead (must it be verified) ?
Also i will like to know whether there is any WhatApp group for 2019 selectees
Hi Bitty,
From the previous posts I think you should do it asap to give KNEC time to forward the same to the embassy.

Am heading to KNEC to see what assistance they will offer but wanted to hear past experiences on where names didn't match.

I had the same worry during my time.
Some docs had 2 while the ID's and the rest had 3.
What i did?Obtained an affidavit to back that up.Everything was fine.

It never even came up during the interview ,i did not have an affidavit either but on the ds 260 i had listed the additional name on the other names used section
 
Yes, it's a requirement for KNEC to send verified results for all Principal applicants directly to the embassy.
I recently got my 2nl for an interview in the first week of August and I would like to know what the procedure was for sending verified knec results.

Also, do I need to give knec my case number when asking knec to verify the results?

Do it ASAP by visiting mtihani house in South c with a copy of your form 4 KCSE certificate they will avail you all the details on how to go about it
Have 2320Ksh ready you will finish the process in a day and yes they do ask for the case No to be filled on the form

Follow up after 10 days and confirm they have sent the statement to the embassy

Hi brit, this is my interview experience
Case no. 201917515,
embassy nairobi kenya
I checked if i had won in may 18 in june i submitted my ds260. In November i recieved mail telling me to send documents which i did immediately i didn’t want to miss this opportunity whatsoever.
2Nl came in march. My interview date was on
11th april.
My son and i arrived at the embassy at around 6:45 already there was a queue my son 2 yrs refused to stand so i had to carry him. Being so heavy i couldn’t manage to stand for long so i went and talked with the security and they allowed me to go in front of the line.
We were checked and we went in. I was asked to produce my 1nl and passport which i did for my son.
We were allowed to enter and we went and picked a no. And sat down but my son being so playful we didn’t do much sitting he was up and down.
My no. Came up and we went to the first window met a black lady was so nice and kind at that time levi was untamed i had to tell the lady to please be patient with me. She laughed and said i understand you completely.
I gave her what she asked for that is passports affidavit of support plus letter from my host, 2nl birth certs, two pics each consent letter from levis dad. She asked if i was married and how many kids to i hv. Then told me to pay at the cashier and wait for my main interview.
I went and paid and went outside to wait. At this point levi was out of control at one point i let him run where he wanted becoz i was so tired and frustrated. He had taken his shoes off and wore mine so i was bare foot the entire time. On the bright side he was really charming to people and being guffy and playful he really entertained people.
My no. Was called and since it caught me by surprise coz i had just sitted like 20 minutes ago didnt expect it. I ran and scooped my son and rushed inside to the interview window. I was panting and my shoes on my hand i dnt think i even said halo to the lady on the other side of the window.
I was panting and levi was now charming the lady. I once again told her to be patient with us which she smiled and said no problem. I put my hand on the machine and the interview started.
(i dnt rem me swearing) but nway
She asked:who is your host
Me. My brother
Her:where does he stay. Does your brother have a family?
Me. Yes wife two kids
Her:what does he do
Me. Military
Her:is this the only child you have
Me. Yes
Okay all the time she was busy with the computer not once did she look at us. I was like what kind of interview is thisnway she said everything looks okay am approving your visa she gave me a green paper and told me to wait for our visa in couple of days.
Silly me i asked is that all. Hahaha she laughed and said yes we left not sure if i should cry or laugh i was just there lol.
Nway within 3 days i recieved my visa
Ps:Mr simon i can’t thank you enough for what you have done for me and my boy i came your blog when i was just researching on the net about dv lottery. I believe i wa meant to find your blog. I used to read questions daily and the interview experiences was all in my fingertips lol nway i was really prepared got everything ready didn’t wnt to forget any small detail. I think at some point i became opposed nway its over now we moving end of june. Best of luck to the remaining people and success to the dv 2020.
Dv lottery has taught me to be patient and to be ready. I thank God for this opportunity and a second chance in life.
Brit may God bless you and your family always.
