Hi,

I got the question on Intended Date of Travel in DS-160 form. My in-laws are applying for the visitor visa in Oct 2016 but they have mentioned intended date of travel of April 2017.

Can we apply for visa 5-6 months before intended date of travel. Please advise.

Thanks

Sanjay

yes. Usually such specific travel dates in the future tend to coincide with baby births.

Agreed a lot are, or First birthdays of grand children, college or professional school graduations of the person they visiting. Planed visit with in-laws in such come third here.

My MIL put done a specific date, that was several months out, it coincided with our daughters first birthday. IMO I think it actually looks better to show a specific date several months out (except in the case of a family emergency) this show the CO that person is a planner and thinks things out. The planned the trip and how they are going to pay for it and such would be in the back of my mind if I were a CO.
