You need to update your profile per the detail given you after the interview. The update includes your email address and contact number. Takes between 3-4 weeks to get passport in hand from DHL. I received email from the embassy in the 3rd week after the interview but no text message.   Will be in DHL tomorrow since today is a holiday.

No it is not DV lottery so  you probably need to wait.  You will definitely be contacted via mail or text. I understand the anxiety of waiting. Keep praying

Good for you Ojo, mine also changed to issued on feb 27 but no email to pick up yet . It’s been 2 weeks after interview though so I guess the average time to pick up is the 3 weeks.

Did anyone actually get a text or a phone call from DHL or the Embassy in Accra (Ghana) when their passport was ready for pickup?  If not what did you do or how did you follow up? 

You can send them an email if you’ve waited over 3 weeks after interview. Once you’ve registered and created that profile on the link they asked you to then you just have to wait and keep your fingers crossed 🤞
