Some of the questions asked on an online visa application form include personal information, address and phone information, passport information, travel information and travel companions details, states immihelp.com. Other information include family details, current work or education or training information, security background and previous U.S. travel information.
Visa application process requires the applicant to complete form DS-160, according to immihelp.com. This form which replaced DS-156, DS-157, DS-158, and DS-3032 has undergone substantive changes that involved addition of questions, including detailed information relating to the previous visa application, the full name and immigration status of immediate relatives living in the U.S. and the applicant’s social security number and driver’s license information.
While completing the DS-160, the applicant must be in possession of the passport, travel itinerary, dates of last five visits to the U.S. and curriculum vitae, states the U.S. Department of State. Some applicants may require additional information such as SEVIS ID for students and exchange visitors. Petition-based temporary workers must provide a copy of I-129.
Applicants are advised to answer all the questions carefully, accurately and satisfactorily, otherwise they may have to correct the application and perhaps reschedule the visa interview appointment, explains the U.S. Department of State. Upon electronically submitting the DS-160, the applicant contacts the embassy or consulate at which he wish to apply to confirm whether he needs to be interviewed by a consular officer and to schedule the interview.
