Help! Old DS 160 number showed up in Appointment Confirmation.

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Several years ago, I got issued a B1/B2 visa. Now, I'm applying for a K1 Visa. Just recently, I booked my interview and the OLD DS 160 number appearedin my appointment confirmation. Is there a way to update this? I've seen a few answers online but nothing seems definite or was written about somebody who went through the same issue. My appointment is with the Manila USEM. Hope somebody can enlighten me about this. Thanks.

Did you fill out the new Ds160 under old user name or email account ? If so this might be why. My fiancee was told to make out whole new account using different email.Not sure but you might want to log in and send message via REQUEST FEEDBACK link. we had the problem because her passport numer had changed and we couldnt change. Embassy told to make new account. hope that helps some

Thank you for your input. I also needed to change my passport number and so I called up the embassy. The embassy updated my passport number because they told me I was not supposed to make a new one as they wanted to see the visa history. After they updated the passport number, they gave me the go signal to book which I did. I already emailed them back again and will post their reply here so others with the same issue can know.

Simple. Complete a new DS-160 print out the confirmation page when done and bring that to the interview.

Thank you fo your input. I received a reply from the USEM already and they updated my DS160 number from old to new. So for those who are encountering the same issue, don't panic. Old DS160 number will normally appear if you used your old account to make an appointment. Please refrain from making a new account as the USEM is fast in updating infos like passport number and ds160 number. All you need to do is send the necessary attachments (old and new bio page of passport, new ds160 confirmation) with explanation of what needs to be updated to their feedback link and they'll update it for you within 24 hours. Once updated, you will receive an email asking you to log back to your profile to check it.

Hi,

Does it mean if we already have existing ds160, and no changes with my passport, i can still use the same ds160?

Previously i applied for b1/b2 visa. Now i am in process of k1 visa
