Electronic Processing and Online forms DS 260 and DS 261.

11 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

I am going for a CR1 and did my first attemt at the DS260 this morning. It took 3 friggin hours!!!! Mind you I had moved 21 times since I was 16 so finding those addresses was a pain in the butt. Then it kept rejecting Feb in any of the dates. Said there was a lag in dates so changed all the Feb dates to March and it worked. That must be a glitch on thier part. So with the CR1 do I actually mail the supporting documents in once the DS260 is submitted or do I scan and send them by email??? I still need a couple of postal codes for places that don't exist anymore that I lived in and a few missing addresses. Did a call out to friends and family for those, what is teh NVC going to do, send some roving reporter out to check out all the places I lived in for past 40 yrs???

The method of sending out the supporting documents depends if you signed up for EP or not. If you signed up for EP, you email the supporting documents. If not, you snail mail them.

Ok, i have started this forum for those who are doing both EP and using the online forms. Some of the other forums relating to this are a little confusimg. any one with clear steps to add here, will be greatly appreciated.

Check the first link in my signature. It's a guide I created myself for NVC for Canadians for EP and online forms.

I am also EP.Now I was reading your first link. It says on the addresses I need exact dates, not month and year. Well on my DS260 it was only month and year from and to. No where did schooling pop up and it asked what kind of occupation I had, only needed to really put in one, no phone number or supervisor name. Why does my form seem different from yours??

I'm thinking it's cause they updated it and removed it from the form, so that information is not needed anymore. You're absolutely positive it didn't ask about previous employers or school at all? I get that they removed the exact dates being needed, but previous employers and school were still asked on the DS-230, so I don't understand why they would remove it.

Schooling definately not, and on employment it was like I said, I had to pick what type of employment I had, the address of the company and that was it. I am wondering if its different because of my age being in my 50's?? I wil be going back over it with a fine tooth comb before i actually hit send. LOL

Age should not make any difference whatsoever. Weird that they removed schooling though... Oh well, I guess it will be easier now for those filling out the DS-260. It wasn't a problem for me since I gathered all the information I needed way ahead of time and just had to input everything once the form became available.

And yes, it's a good idea to review anything before submitting.

You can call the NVC and ask for the number.
