When you go to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate for your interview, you need to take the email or letter that shows the new date and time for your interview appointment. You need this document, along with the application fee for your Diversity Visa, in order to be permitted to enter. According to USAFIS, “Rescheduling your interview is not ideal, but is certainly permissible. Be sure to have all current paperwork with you, if possible, to expedite the process.”

It is important to go to your rescheduled interview even if you don’t have everything that is required, such as your medical examination. At the interview, the consular officer will let you know in writing if you qualify for the Green Card through the Diversity Visa Lottery as long as you submit any required documents that you don’t have with you.

This is satisfactory as long as there are still Diversity Visa numbers available.
