The form DS-156 that we filled out on the embassy website has an expiration date of 5-31-2011. Can we still use it? Is there a new one we are supposed to use? If so, how do we get that?? Thanks!

I just replied to another topic asking the exact same thing:

Just use this one and ignore the expiration date. As long as they don't update it this is the form to use. I specifically asked my Consulate and they said "don't worry about expiration date". If you wanna make sure the Consulate accepts it, maybe call them and confirm? That's what I did.
