DS-156

Hello people of Visajourney. I'm close to getting my package ready to send off the consulate. However, one obsticle remains which blocks my path. The DS-156. Now, it was required that this form be completed online so that it can get the specialised barcode with it. I found the form and filled it out, but I'm having issues printing it. Mainly, the complete PDF form of it will not load for me to print. I was wondering if anyone had any advice for me, or if it was possible to circumvent this entirely (though I highly doubt it).

Here is the form in question: http://evisaforms.state.gov/default.asp

Anyone able to help me? Any advice?

After you fill out, click on the continue button only one time, and then wait for it to load the pages. Sometimes, it can take long minutes depends on your internet speed. And also make sure that your computer has Adobe Reader installed that supports. The complete print out of the forms will include barcode number, so the complete print out is three pages.

I used Google Chrome and had the same problem. Switched back to Internet Explorer to re-do the form, and for a moment I thought I had the same issue, but then it suddenly loaded! So maybe use IE and be patient. =P

Delayed post and you've obvs. already figured it out haha but I had so much grief with that one too! Didn't work on Chrome, tried copying it all out in Firefox, still didn't work, so ended up having to install IE just for that, in the meantime the installation shutting down the other browsers so I couldn't even copy it out from the other one. Oh well, got there in the end (:
