Unable to Access DS-260 Form Online

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble accessing the DS-260 form. I am able to login to the website fine. I have completed DS-261. I have paid my AOS fee and it is marked as Paid (transaction date 4th August), but I am not seeing where I can fill out the DS-260 form.

The only place I can see where it might be is up the top next to Fee it says IV Application, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to wait longer? Is this a system error? Is anyone else experiencing this?

Your ds261 needs to be reviewed before your ds260 will become available. Call the nvc and try to get it reviewed over the phone. After it is reviewed it will be a couple days before the IV fee and ds260 are available.

I called and NVC reviewed my DS261 over the phone even it showed completed online. My DS260 was avail less than a week
