DS-260 online form expiration/termination date

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Recieved  our immigrant visa case creation on may 15 2018, and assume I will have until may 15 2019 to fill it out and submit everything. 

If I pay the fees for the DS-260 and the I-864 now, will the case still be terminated in may, or how do I go about keeping it going?

It has not been a year since the case was created, so it is still active. Pay the fees now and keep the case going before it gets too late. 


I would also make sure I hurry up with every other requirements once both payment has been processed, if I were you.
