I am from India. I will be applying for F1 Visa. While filling the DS160 form I got confused about what to fill in my home address and mailing address. My present address on my passport is of the college. Now my degree is completed and I am residing now at my permanent address(home). I am confused – what should I fill in the mailing address, should the mailing address of DS160 be the same as the present address of the passport or it has to be of my home as I am currently residing there?
I was supposed to attend university starting fall 2020 but due to the pandemic my final semester exams were postponed and I had to defer my admission to spring 2021.
So, I graduated in September and I’m not working anywhere. I have my F1 visa interview in a week. Should I select ‘not employed’ and specify the reason that I recently graduated and am awaiting university to start? Or should I select the student option and fill in the details of the university I’m intending to attend in spring?
My husband has drop box appointment for H1b. I have a question regarding the DS160 PREVIOUS EMPLOYMENT section. We realized that the Employer address(at the bottom of the page) in his I797 does not match with my actual work location. It was a different branch office’s address. So, in the DS160, should we enter his actual work location or the address specified in I797?
I am a PhD student. I intend to attend a scientific conference in the US in August, where I’ll be presenting a paper. I recently submitted a completed DS-160 application form to the US Embassy in London for a B-2 visa (online). However, when I tried to book an appointment for visa interview, I saw that the earliest date was too close to a planned trip to Spain (I’ll travel to Spain soon, will be there for a few months). I decided not to book the appointment with the US Embassy in London. I completed another DS-160 application which I submitted online to the US Embassy in Madrid, Spain. I have also scheduled an appointment with them (US Embassy in Madrid), and have received an appointment confirmation.
It appears I can only “Print Confirmation” and “Email Confirmation” when I login to the DS-160 application form (the one I submitted to the US Embassy in London). There is no option to delete the application 🙁
Is there a way to cancel/delete the DS-160 application I submitted to the US Embassy in London (online submission)? Will such a cancellation be considered a visa refusal/withdrawal? Thanks a lot!
I see a DS-160 requires a lot of time to complete. Can I submit a standalone DS-160 first (in case I might need one in the future)?
That is, can I do a DS-160 submission without any intention to schedule a follow-up B1-2 visa interview, because I belong to a VWP country?
Would doing so incur any prejudice if any?
I did my BS-MS dual degree in India, and while pursuing my degree (was a full-time student) I was offered a scholarship. Can this scholarship be considered as an employment? Should I include this in the DS160 form for U.S. F1 visa?
While filling up my DS-160 form, I was not able to enter details of my part-time work in the past 5 years. After filling up details of my full-time employment, the “Add more Employment” button got disabled and I couldn’t add more details.
The savings of my part-time business are the main source of my financial statement. Now if the Visa officer asks me a question regarding my past employment? Should I mention the details of my part-time business? I don’t want to shock Visa officer with new information and create distrust.
Is there anyway to provide this information before hand? Can anyone provide a good solution?
In the previous employer field, I have given my old company’s general phone number. Does it have to be a person like my previous supervisor or someone from HR?
Please advise me on this matter so that I can avoid trouble later.
Do the best you can. I provided a list of about a dozen countries that I still could remember and added a disclaimer “This is our best estimate based on an anaylysis of past travel records”. That seemed to work fine.
It would be good to go through your passport and make sure that all stamps that are in there are covered in the list.
Make also sure you are dilligent about any country the US may consider as problematic (North Korea, Iran, Iraq, etc.)
