The first step for the US Visa Application
begins with the DS 160 form
, which needs to be filled up by the student. Encompassing all the important details, the DS 160 form must be filled up and presented before you begin your interview at the Embassy. Along with the DS 160 form
, a bar code is provided, which ensures that you book the right slot for your interview. Certain important points which must be kept in mind while filling the DS 160 form include:
- You cannot be idle with the form open for more than 15 minutes, else the session might expire
- The embassy for embassy of the scheduled interview and actual interview might be different
- English language and characters are only accepted as the mode of entry for the DS 160 form
- The alpha-numeric bar code that will be generated after the DS 160 form in generated has to be kept in hardcopy which might be required during the appointment for the interview.
