US Visa application

If you want to live your life abroad then the United States of America is one of the best options to live in. From different nationalities to races, the US is home to millions of immigrants and different ethnicities.

Here is how you can apply for US Visa in 6 easy steps that might help you to live there.

For Nonimmigrant Visa applicants:

Determine your visa type by reading Common Nonimmigrant Visas. Each visa type explains the qualifications and application items. Choose the visa type that applies to your situation.

Be sure to also review the Visa Waiver Program. If your country participates in the Visa Waiver Program, you do not need to apply for a visa if you are traveling for business or pleasure and will only be staying in the United States for 90 days or less.

Step 2

Complete the DS-160 Form. Be sure to read the Guidelines for Completing the DS-160 Form carefully. All information must be correct and accurate. Once the form is submitted, you cannot edit it.

Step 3

Pay visa fees. Once you have determined the correct visa type and completed the DS-160, you must pay the visa fee. The visa fee page lists the visa types and correlating visa fee in U.S. dollars and local currency. Keep your payment receipt. You will need the receipt number in order to make a visa appointment.

Step 4

Now you will need to log in to your profile with the same credentials you used to pay your visa fee. Once you are in the system, you will see your dashboard. Click on Schedule Appointment on the left-hand side menu.

You will need:

  • Your passport number.
  • The receipt number from your Visa Fee receipt. Click here if you need help finding this number.
  • The ten (10) digit barcode number from your DS-160 confirmation page.

Step 5

Visit the U.S. Embassy or Consulate on the date and time of your visa interview. Be sure to check the Schedule My Appointment page for the necessary documentation needed for your appointment. Before going to the Embassy, please review the Security Regulations for a list of prohibited items in the Embassy.

Step 6

If your visa application is approved, your passport and visa can be collected from the pickup location you selected when you scheduled for an interview appointment.
