DS-160 Electronic Visa Application:

Effective April 30, 2010, individuals applying for a non-immigrant visa at the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince will be required to submit a new electronic application form, known as the DS-160 Non-Immigrant Visa Electronic Application

The U.S. Department of State developed this new application with a view toward streamlining and simplifying the process for applicants, as well as offering greater privacy protection for applicants.

The new DS-160 application must be completed online. There is no charge and it does not require the use of intermediaries. The visa applicant simply prints out a confirmation sheet with a bar code and brings this to the interview. The bar code allows the Embassy to electronically access the information contained in the DS-160. Thus, the applicant will no longer need to provide a printed application form to the Consular Officer during the visa interview. 

Most importantly, this new application form offers several benefits to our visa applicants.

First, the new DS-160 simplifies the application process by replacing the previous forms: DS-156, DS-157, and DS-158. The applicant will not have to worry about which application they need to fill out.

Second, as the information provided in the form DS-160 can only be viewed by the applicant and the Embassy, the new form offers greater privacy. The previous application was printed with personal data and submitted on the day of the interview.

Finally, as personal data will only be viewed electronically at the Embassy or Consulate where the applicant intends to apply, it is recommended that the application be completed at least 48 hours prior to the appointment, making sure to indicate the correct Embassy or Consulate where the appointment will be held. If the application is filled out correctly, the process may be faster for everyone.

It is important to remember that this application, like the previous one, must be completed in full, with accurate information and honesty. If applicants do not answer questions that apply, their applications may be rejected. The new application does not minimize the requirement to provide proof of all economic and social ties outside the United States.

Individuals can access the DS-160 from the Department of State’s Consular Electronic Application Center website.  All applicants must schedule appointments using our online appointment website.
