ds-160 passport scan or camera ?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

On the form when submitting via email, my DS-160 it states a color "scanned copy" of your passport to be emailed with the ds-160. I do not have a scanner, so my question is :

Is it acceptable to take a picture with my camera and just upload it, or MUST it be done on a scanner for the proper format?


Met online in jan 2013 became exclusive Feb1

Met in person Sept/ Engaged in Oct 2013 never wanted to leave each other.

Returned to visit July 31 2014 till Oct 2014

started our K1 VISA process...October 2014

K1 noa1 Oct 6 Texas.....now the wait begins...to start our journey together.

NOA2 email notice Approval May 14/2015 yay!

VISA APPROVED!

There's a free app you can download on your phone that scans pictures and documents perfectly. I use "CamScanner", there's others but that one just works!

So it MUST be a scan, i cannot take a picture and upload it? Unfortunately I dont have a phone that is up to date, or online, but someone in my family may. Thanks!
