DS-260 Beneficial or Detrimental to file prior to having supporting documents?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am ready to file my DS-260 albeit I am still waiting for police/court records which I expect to have within about 2-3 weeks. Would it be prudent to wait until all documents are available and submit everything together or submit the application now with documents to follow? I don't want to cause any delays.

Since the DS-260 isn't included with the IV package (as it's an online form), you can most definitely do the form now and send the package later. If you simply wait, you're just wasting time for them to review the form.

Yeah thanks Saylin. It does make sense given the form is a web submission and the other is an email. I'll get right on it! :) Besides, they haven't even given my instruction package yet.

Have fun with it, it's long XD Make sure you print out the review pages at the end, as well as the confirmation page, for your own records.

Yeah I already completed it, after NUMEROUS crashes. What should have taken perhaps 45 minutes took like 1-1/2 hours at least. And NOW I'm having trouble actually submitting it. Six attempts and it finally went :(

That'd be why. DOS's site (like most government sites) are designed for IE, and IE only. They don't test (or care) if it works in other browsers.
