Sogebank Receipt Application Procedure
1. Complete your DS-160 Online Visa Application at https://ceac.state.gov/CEAC/.
2. Submit the application and print your confirmation receipt.
3. Have a photo taken that meets these requirements.
4. Schedule your interview at http://evisaforms.state.gov/SchedulingSystem.asp. You will need the Barcode Number from your completed DS-160 application form and the 6-digit red number from your Sogebank receipt to complete the process.
5. Print the appointment confirmation and bring it with you to your interview together with your photo, valid passport, Sogebank receipt, DS-160 application confirmation form and any other documents supporting your application.
When your visa is approved, you will need to make arrangements with the courier service located within the U.S. Consular Section to have your passport delivered to you. This service costs USD $10.00 per passport.
Due to biometrics processing procedures, we are unable to issue visas the day of the interview. All applicants are encouraged to apply for visas well in advance. Appointments cannot be expedited simply because you purchased your tickets. You should not buy your plane tickets unless you have a valid visa in your possession.
Visiting the Embassy
When you come to the U.S. Embassy, you must go through a security check similar to an airport. DO NOT bring these items with you:
-- Food or drinks
-- Liquids such as perfumes, lotion, etc.
-- Electronics of any kind, including computers, telephones, MP3 players, etc.
You should have all of the necesary forms and documents required for your appointment ready when you arrive at the embassy. You will also need a valid photo ID.
Plan to arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time so you can complete the security check.
