Gya: Online non-immigrant U.S. visa applications

The Consular Section at the United States Embassy in Georgetown is now offering an online, electronic version of the non-immigrant visa (NIV) DS-156 application form.

A US Embassy press release stated yesterday that the new electronic NIV application form is available at the following website:http://evisaforms.state. gov. The release noted that the new electronic NIV application form is an additional option for applicants to complete their NIV application.

But NIV applicants may continue to fill out by hand the DS-156 NIV application form received from Citizens Bank.

By completing the new online NIV application form, applicants will expedite the administrative processing on the day of their appointment.

The information requested on the Electronic Visa Application is the same information required on the paper Application Form DS-156. The release also noted that the process of applying for an NIV remains the same.
Applicants are required to print all three pages of the document and bring all three pages to the Embassy on the day of their appointment.

NIV applicants should not fold the sheets, the release advised.
At least applicants have to appear in person at the Embassy ... which is more than Maura Harty wants them to do in Saudi Arabia.
