DS-260 Mistake

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I was checking my DS-260 and I have realized that I made a mistake on the "Previous U.S. Travel Information" section. I have put the wrong month on one of the previous dates of entry.

My DS-260 was accepted on September 28th and I am now waiting for the interview date. After reading some other threads in this forum, it seems that this mistake can be fixed by the CO on the interview. Am I right?

Also, it might sound stupid but I can't remember when I left the US on my very first visit there 12 years ago so probably the length of the stay in this one visit is wrong as well. I know when I entered because I have the stamp on my old passport but my country didn't stamp my passport when I returned then... I am trying to retrieve this information with the I-94 site (https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html) but I can't find myself there with my old passport... So I basically don't know for sure the exact date when I left the US 12 years ago. Am I able to ask the CO for this information and make him update it with whatever the date is?

Thank you in advance!

Hi there.

I also found a mistake on that specific section of DS260. In my case, I misread the question. I thought it was the last 5 years of your visit. hahahaha And I did't state the visits before that. I called NVC about it and a rep told me that it can be fixed at the interview. Just tell them the truth and it'll be alright. I'm still waiting on my case to be completed but I'll fix my mistake at the interview. So you can.

Also, I have an answer to your question. It says in DS260 help section that "Help: Previous U.S. Visits - If you are unsure about when you visit the U.S., please provide a best estimate." So yea, you can let them know a best estimate of your visits!;)

Thanks for your response!

Good to know it's not that big of a deal. Anyway I have found my old flight tickets and now I know when I left the US back then so I'll be able to give accurate information to the CO at the interview.
