Hi all!


My fiance created a profile with traveldocs when applying for his B1/B2 Visit Visa. He also used his regular email when creating the profile. Should he use the same profile and email address when applying for and scheduling the K1 Visa Interview?

yes he should,there is no need for panicking because all those infos will pop on screen at embassy after he does the fingerprinting.

Yes. If he tries to make a new account and uses the same passport number, it won't take it anyway.

Hi Guys, we followed through as adviced. My fiance scheduled a K1 Interview using his previous profile.


The challenge that resulted was that his old DS-160 form which he used to schedule a B1/B2 Visa was what was showing on his appointment letter when he finally scheduled an interview date. And he couldn't change it to the recent DS-160 form number on his own. 


We had to write to ustraveldocs and they changed it asap. 


So we are good to go! 




PS: We had to post this so that others with similar case as ours won't make the huge mistake of not correcting the DS-160 number. This is because they will be turned back at the embassy. The DS-160 number on the Appointment Letter should match with the number on the filled DS-160 form confirmation page.
