Hello Everyone,

My fiancee has received packet 4 forms to fill out for the interview. I looked them over and discovered that they are all expired. Is this possible??? I have a DS-156 that expires 9/30/2010. Does anyone have the latest one that is blank? I went to the Government site and they want you to fill it out online then print it. I would rather complete it by hand. Also, The DS-156 expired 9/30/2010 and the DS-157 expired 9/30/2008. Is this a test??? Haha. Let me know is anyone else has run into this....

Thanks in advance....

Filling out the forms online and printing will give you the most legible forms. If needed, download a blank form, complete it by hand, and then type in the information once you are sure of the form content.

While a form may be expired it still may be accepted. Got to the USCIS and/or Dept. of State website to check to see what versions of a particular form are acceptable.

We got expired forms too. I checked with the consulate and they said it was ok to submit them.

You can email the consualte as well - couldn't hurt to ask again.

Best of luck.
