    Form filing tips:

    Tips
    Applicants should use the same passport to purchase their receipt ( Or pay fee) as they will use at the time of interview.
    If your passport expires within the next 6 - 12 months It is advised to obtain a new passport prior to purchasing a receipt for a visa interview.

    All questions on the DS-156, DS-157, and DS-158 must be answered in full.Write "NA" where not applicable.
    All Visa applicants should indicate clearly in their Last Name and Given Name. Its often seen in the case of South Indian names that passport issuing authorities write the whole name in the Last Name field.

    Applicants should check their passport and if the whole name is given in one line, they should get the same changed from passport office before applying for a visa.

    If you download form from the net, The Downloaded version of DS-156 MUST be printed back-to-back on 8½ x 11 paper. You will need Acrobat Reader to view or print form DS-156
    All applicants above the age of 14 must sign their application form. Where applicant is below 14, either parent can sign the application form.
    Indicate your current address and not the permanent address on the visa application form.
    The photo affixed must be front facing, not more than 6 months old with a light color background and must follow these guidelines.
    Note: If you are using, drop box service, the Drop Box service provider should also be able to give you more information on these Do's and Dont's.
    These useful tips can be a great help to get you Visa.

    Tips
    Host or sponsor in USA should send complete and readable documents. It is better to have computerized printouts, so that it can be easily readable.
    Send complete instructions, and procedure for getting the Visa. There should be no discrepancy in any of the information given by you and by your visitor.
    Try to send your documents as latest dated as possible, do not hold for long time, it doesn't mean to be very latest , 1 months/ 45 days is ok but not more then that.
    Provide all authentic and clear answers to Consulate staff. In case of any confusion, don't hesitate to ask person near by or consulate staff in a polite manner.
    If language is a problem, you may request to talk in local language or in Hindi.
    Consulate might ask for return air tickets, medical insurance etc. Tell them those things will be done after the visa is approved.
    Complete the Visa application form neatly. In case of error, ask for another form. Do not overwrite.
    Visitor needs to understand the procedure and each document to be submitted.\
    Upon receiving your visa, carefully check for any kind of mistakes like name, date of birth, type of visa, validity date, etc.
    Never, ever say during the Interview that the purpose of your visit is Baby care taker for your "Daughter/ Daughter in law / Relative " etc. Always say that the purpose of visit is Travel USA for leisure pleasure trip.
    Remember: The date of expiry of your stay limit, is the date on the I-94 form slip which will be attached to your passport at the port of entry in USA, and not the date stamped on your visa. Usually these are the same dates, but in some cases it might differ.
    When you go for interview.

    You are not allowed to carry any office bag, briefcase, electronic items, mobile phones, cigarettes, briefcases, etc. into the consulate. Only a plastic bag or a woman's handbag is allowed. So go with this preparation, if possible go with some friend who can hold these things and wait for you outside the consulate or Visa provider office.
