DS-230...still a bit unclear...

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit confused about the DS230 form. A few questions:

- Can you email Part 1 back before you get your NVC case #?

- What other information needs to be emailed along with it?

- and finally, when you mail the hard copy to the consulate, what goes in there?

I've been looking all over VisaJourney for a checklist, and haven't been successful in finding one on the Dept of State website either.

Any answers you have would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Mo

Wiat until you have your new case number and Kingston has logged in your petition into there system after it leaves the NVC, if you do it before they wont have your case so they cant do anything about giving you an interview date. All you need to email is the DS-230 Part 1 and when you send it via mail its the same thing...just the DS-230 part 1. When you email kingston you should write "2nd Inquiry KNG2011######" Which is your case number to get the fastest reply. Hope this helps :)
