If you have the need to apply for a nonimmigrant US visa, please follow the steps shown below.
How to Apply for a Nonimmigrant US Visa
For a Nonimmigrant Visa applicants:
You need to determine your type of visa by reading Common Nonimmigrant Visas. Each type of visa explains the qualifications and application items you will need for it to be processed. Choose the visa type that applies to your type of situation.
Be also sure to review the Visa Waiver Program. If your country participates in the Visa Waiver Program, you do not need to apply for a visa if you are traveling for business or pleasure and will only be staying in the United States for only 90 days or less.
When once you have determined the correct type of visa, you must pay the visa fee. The visa fee page lists the visa types and correlating visa fee in US dollars and in your native currency.
To pay your visa fee, read the Bank and Payment Options page available. This page contains how to make your visa fee payment. You must keep your receipt number to book your visa appointment.
The next step is to complete the DS-160 form. Be sure to read the Guidelines for Completing the DS-160 Form carefully. All information must be correct and up to date. Once the form is submitted, you cannot make any changes to it. If you need assistance, you may need to consult an immigration lawyer or translator. The call center cannot help you complete your DS-160. You will need your DS-160 number to book your appointment.
