DS-160, Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application form, is for temporary travel to the United States. Consular Officers use the information entered on the DS-160 to process the visa application, and along with a personal interview, determine if an applicant is eligible for a nonimmigrant visa.
Please note, Canadian students do not need to apply for a visa
After you have submitted the DS-160, you must follow the steps below:
- Print and keep the DS-160 barcode page. (You will NOT need to print the full application)
- You must schedule a visa interview appointment. (The U.S. Embassy or Consulate does not schedule an appointment for you.)
- Pay the visa application processing fee. Review country-specific instructions on the U.S. Embassy or Consulate website.
