What Is DS-260 Form?

Each individual who is going to move to the U.S. for permanent residence has to seek for an immigrant visa. In order to implement this procedure each foreign citizen has to fill out a form DS-260 that is online Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration Application.

Sometimes other supplementary documents are required, but such form is one of the basic documents that the Department of State needs for evaluating an immigrant visa case.

This application form is usually submitted online to the State Department. All aliens under 14 years are incapable to fill out the form themselves. In this case a form is completed by alien`s parents or guardians.

Before filing an application an individual has to pay correct service fee. After the fee is paid, an individual has to prepare an application. On our site you may find a fillable ds-260 sample which can be filled out and further submitted to a recipient online. We offer you a wide range of editing tools in order to customize a document according to your requirements.

A form is presented by number of questions and fillable fields. Almost all fields are mandatory to be completed. An alien has to provide sufficient information in order to have an application accepted and processed. An individual is required to include following details in a blank ds-260 form:

  • personal data, i.e. full name, address, date and place of birth, nationality, passport details etc.
  • details about family (i.e. parents, spouse, children);
  • information about 5 previous visits to the U.S. (if any);
  • details regarding work and education;
  • social security number details.

After a document is complete, check it for mistakes and completeness of information to avoid any delays or rejections. Submit a document to the recipient for further verification of alien`s eligibility to obtain an immigrant visa. Once a document is accepted, a person will be emailed a confirmation. Remember that filing DS-260 is not the final step for receiving a visa. An individual further may be asked to come for the interview to a consulate taking with him/her a printed confirmation of filing a form.
