Visa Application Form DS-160
The visa application form DS-160 is required for all nonimmigrant visa applicants. The interactive online DS-160 simplifies the visa application process. The U.S. State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs developed the web-based DS-160 application to improve the likelihood of accurately collecting required information the first time, thereby saving applicants a return-trip to the Consulate because of incomplete or inaccurate information they entered on the previous nonimmigrant visa application form.
Our Visa Application Steps will walk you through the entire visa application process, including the use of the DS-160 application form.
Successful applicants must pick up their visas within one month of delivery to the DHL location chosen on the original application. After one month, packages will be returned to the Applicant Service Center.
