How to Apply

Step One: Once you have received your DS-2019 Certificate of Eligibility and SEVIS number, you must complete the online DS-160 application form and print the confirmation page for each person applying for a visa, regardless of age. Answer the questions to the best of your ability, we cannot assist with completing the form.  Before you begin, please review the information page on filling out the DS-160 form as well as the photo requirements for your visa.

Step Two: Go to to pay the MRV application fee and schedule an interview, or obtain information on applying for the visa by courier.  Click on “Apply” if you are a first time user or “Continue” if you already have an account.
