Posted 10 May 2012 - 11:47 AM

I downloaded DS-230 document from this site: http://www.state.gov...ation/81807.pdf

On top of the document it says "EXPIRES: 04/30/2012"

I could not find any other version of document which has expire date beyond this above document's expire date.

Can I still use this document and fill it out? Will NVC accept this document when my application is reached to their office in near future?
