DS-230 Part II is not required for the K-1 visa applicants as it is a non-immigrant visa, and the Part II is used for immigrant applicants.If you want, you might take that section along with you at the interview but they won't ask for it.

Hope this helps!

Thanks!! You know I figured it out right after I posted!

Now I'm wondering if we do the DS-156 OR the new DS-160?

I emailed the Vancouver consulate about that when I was doing my Packet 3 a year ago. My Packet 3 said DS-156, but their website said DS-160, and people here going through other consulates said they were using the DS-160.

Vancouver emailed back a very terse "Form DS 160 - Currently NOT acceptable for processing K visas. You must complete and bring to the visa interview 2 sets of the DS-156 and one DS-156K." Now, the DS-160 was just being rolled out back then, so this may have changed, but that's what they said a year ago.

I think the general response is to do whatever the Packet 3 instructions say, and not to worry about anything else. If it's still unclear, I found that Vancouver was very prompt about returning emails with procedural questions. I hardly needed VJ at all during the consulate application stage :) . Just put your VAC case number in the subject line and email VancouverK@state.gov and they'll get back to you within 2 days. They're terse, but you get authoritative answers quick.
